2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel: New Tires Before A Road Trip
August 3, 2015
Our long-term 2014 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has 35,100 miles on the clock and it needs new tires. Okay, it doesn't need new tires, as we could probably eke out a few hundred more miles from them. But the tread is low and I'm about to go on a 5,200-mile road trip, so we decided to jump the gun and put on a new set before I hit the road.
The Ram rides on 275/60R20 Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires from the factory and we decided to use a direct replacement. We called our local shop, Stokes Tire Service, who gave us a choice of white or black lettering on the sidewalls.
White lettering was $3 more per tire, so we opted for black and placed the order. They arrived the next day. With mounting and balancing, the total came to $742.32. The Ram is now ready for its road trip. Check back for updates from the road.
