The Dodge Ram 2011 models came with Good Year HP's and they are junk...and they "the Big Wheels" know it from feedback, not just from the Ram or Bowtie community. Several I know have insisted that Dodge, in particular, get this sub-par tire of the truck and they cooperated after finding that the tires were indeed the culprit for wobble and steerability issues, nonetheless tire slippage. @5150, I don't think the money he has in his pocket is the issue...the issue is putting a subpar tire on a vehicle of this quality...when the "Big Wheels" know from previous years feedback that it is subpar. Michelin is the tire of choice for many, for many "proven" reasons.Report it
If you can afford a $50k vehicle you can certainly afford to go a tire shop and get a set of any brand tire you want. As far as slipping there is nothing wrong with the Goodyears seems to be a drivers problem.Report it
This is a followup to my posting: I have contacted Chevrolet about the safety issues of the tires. I got a real smart*** answer that I had tire loyalty issues. Needless to say, I followed up with them and expect them to get this resolved. The Goodyear Eagle tires are not safe to drive and there is no way these tires should be on a $50K vehicle, or any vehicle for that matter. Do not buy this vehicle with these tires.Report it
