Devo if you really want to get rid of that pOs RAM now is the time to do so. Friends just bought a 19 Laramie with 12k long bed with a Companion hitch in the bed and it's a certified RAM and gets the 5/100 changed to 7/100 drivetrain. They paid 70k for it and that was a decent deal. They traded in their Class C for a 34' Cougar and then needed a tow truck. Not the best time to buy either but that's the way it is!!!

OH, I convinced them to sell the China Bomb tires on the RV and install a set of ENDURANCE 235/80R16E for an out the door price of $787. They didn't like the odds of being left along the freeway in AZ on a 110 day.

That wasn't a bad deal at all, I traded in my 17 for a 20 3500 with 55k on it and paid about $59k out the door with an extended warranty. Don't know what dogs problem is, but my dealership is awesome and has taken care of me sometimes when they probably shouldn't have. Just bought my wife and Islander Unlimited there because of it and I hated her Challenger!

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.


You're too funny. And acting like a 15 year old, no, make that 12 year old, since my 15 year old even knows that constant name calling is childish, is just in poor taste.
The funny part is you know nothing about me or the vehicles we own, but your overwhelming anger or hatred or just plain insufferability wouldn't let you understand anything other than you're seeing through your blinders anyway. Currently in the stable is a Ram, a Dodge, a Chevy, a GMC, a Ford and an AMC (Jeep). So take your brand loyalty garbage somewhere else....
I've had a bad Dodge. A 2001 pickup went through 3 complete 3rd member assemblies in the first 2500 miles. Left me sitting on the side of the road, brand spankin new, twice, in 2 different states, with a trailer behind it, within the first month of ownership. The next 4 years and 125k miles was completely trouble free.
Unlike alot of people, I've either been responsible for, been assigned to drive, or owned hundreds of vehicles, mostly trucks. But it is a larger sample size than most folks and service from the dealer/mfg is not an absolute function of the brand. The 2001 Dodge ring gear eater, I was treated MORE than fair by 2 different dealers. Heck two of them rented me vans on their dime to get back on the road, and 1 of them gave me a 100k warranty for free and bought me a plane ticket to come back and get my truck once it was fixed.
I've had the aforementioned bad Dodge, 2 different F150s that were total lemons and 2 out of 6 2014 Silverados that had complete electrical freakout/meltdowns. Dunno what even the problem was. They were new, they were leased and I pulled them onto the back of winch truck and sent them back to town with a note to please replace them with 2 new trucks...
As far as personal diesel pickups go, 1 LB7 Dmax that was absolutely flawless for the 150k miles we had it. The old 07 Mega cab. Was not a perfect truck, but no inherent, repeating, debilitating issues, 180k miles with a hot tune and the guy I sold it to for too much money still loves it. Current 2016 Ram 85k miles, deleted and tuned since new and aside from the 68rfe that shifts like a dyslexic bag of c rap, its been super reliable.

Furthermore, your memory is horrible. You've been complaining and belittling everyone who responds to you on multiple forums and you apparently don't remember that I agreed that you have an apparent lemon and that I'd try to shove it up Stellantis' @ss sideways.

One question though, are you this bitter to your wife too, or just on the internet?

No. You did.
I provided my opinion on a possible cause and nothing else. My post was only one word. I specifically left out any reference to a manufacture. Didn't mention the truck nor the tires.

You and 12V commented that my post was useless, even though I wasn't the only one who suggested it. And, you both were the first to bring up why I didn't make it a manufacture issue. Why? Doesn't matter. I didn't.

That's just how your brain works. 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.

Thank you for memorializing your poor reading and comprehension skills. LOL. I won't call you stupid though. I wouldn't want to insult stupid people.

Okay, now it's pretty plain why the OP hasn't posted back.

Yup, my fault or partly, tbh.
But the issue was pretty well vetted out and based on the age/mileage of the “repeating” condition he’s observed, it’s not likely that it’s any specific issue with either the tire or the vehicle.
And since the Op didn’t really offer anymore info early in the conversation he probably just did what any normal person would do. Buy a new tire or tires and move on with life.
