You have to stay on top of rotations and shocks, or you will have noisy tires.

Thanks Dave. Which Firestone did you have? Just found a pricebreak on some Dueler H/L 422 Ecopia's. Wasn't sure if that's the Firestone you were referring too

I still have about 9/32s on my 235/18s. Once these get down to about 4/32s, I'm going to go to throw a 2" lift on it, level out the front and put on 245/16s on it.

Here is a listing from Discount Tire Direct.

http://www.discounttiredirect.com/di...=prca&fqs=true

I have owned a set of Pirelli's before and was extremely satisfied with how they held up and performed.

I had a set of OEM Continentals and thought they were crap.

I currently have a set of Yokahama's on my Liberty and the wife's R350. Actually the same exact set fits both. They ride great and performed fantastic in the nasty winter we have had.

I have dealt with Discount Tire Direct for years and have nothing but great things to say about them. I used to be an avid Tire Rack customer but as great as all the data is, their prices have drifted from being such a bargin... (remember, need to figure about $80.00 on top of their price for shipping. Discount Tire Direct ships for free).

Ended up going w the Pirelli Scorpion Verde All Season, 235/60R18. Had the back put on the other day and the fronts on today. What I thought was a unique, and therefore cool, 70th anniversary edition rim ended up being what has made this such a PITA for me. When I bought this KK I didn't think about the wheel size being 18s. When I looked at the wheels I ASSUMED (I know, I know) that they were 17s. Only reason that I'm not trying to swap out rums is that I might try to sell it soon for a 4x4 and figure keeping the whole 70th Anniversary package together will help.

Thanks for all the advise, as always folks!

Agreed w Discount. I've bought the majority of tires here for years. Haven't ever really given me a reason to go elsewhere.
