Nothing from the OP in a couple days, wonder how he's faring. I'd be curious to hear if he found anything.

Grit dog and 12V have spoken and the question has been answered. LOL.


The dodge fan boys hate the dodge/ram dealerships. Now that I have owned a Mexican Fiat Oui-Oui (La fiat wee-wee), I understand why.
The only thing more incompetent than Ram is Bye-don and his supporters.

And your genius answer was that he grossly over filled 1 of 4 tires with a bad pressure gauge? Lol
Not sure where you are coming from on this, but having a decent collection of tire gauges, I’ve compared some from time to time and whether they were new, old, cheap or expensive, they always seemed to run within a few psi of each other.

You’re one of those folks who doesn’t have the answer (None of us do here and the OP isn’t handing out more bread crumbs for you to salivate over.), but gets butt hurt when someone doesn’t agree with you.

And if you want to talk actual experience, I’ve been over filling truck tires (mostly a truck on half tons with cheap OE tires) to match a load above their weight rating for a long time and many miles on many trucks. Like 60psi in a 44psi tire to take the squishy out of it. OP over inflating a bit is not a likely cause.
But then again, some folks cannot write anything off as a coincidence and are too dense to understand things like passenger side tires are more susceptible to damage in general.

If we drove old V10 Fords though, he’d be our besty!

I think I know why we haven't heard from the OP. Most likely the online bickering back and forth. [emoticon]

My local Goodyear dealer suggested Toyo to me. I've had excellent service from them.

LOL.

Yes. I own a Ford V10, other cars and still a Ram. The deals to buy a Ford don't exist yet. So, the Ram is parked and I'm negotiating selling prices. I've got time and am in no rush.

The only problem the two of you have is that I'm not a part of the dodge cult. If I kept the Ram, kept quiet and dealt with the FCA and dealership ****, you'd be singing a different tune. But, I'm not braindead and won't accept a bad product that won't be fixed by the manufacture. For some reason, that's a foreign thought process to the two of you. Braindead people don't surprise me at all. Bye-don idiots just exist.

That and then most likely doing a full AMZ/OIL fluid change along with installing a B&W hitch.
