adams Posted August 12, 2018 Share Posted August 12, 2018 Didn't want to hijack the discussion on Tacoma tires, so thought I'd start another. Looking for tire recommendations/experiences from anyone driving a Ram 1500. My 2017 blew out a tire (stock Goodyear Wrangler SRA) with only 14,000 kms on it. Happened on the Blackstone at the worst possible place and I am extremely careful and slow when driving on roads with sharp rocks, so not sure how this happened. Looks like a sharp rock or something pushed up through the bottom tread and then it split about an inch on each side (so the tire is not repairable). Now I don't trust the other 3 tires either so looking to make a brand change to something that will resist flats the most. Never had AT tires as they are reported to be noisy, bad on gas and not the best handling... but would they be better than all-season for flats? I drive 80% on the highway and 20% on dirt, so looking at Michelin defender LTX, but Kal tire also pointed out the Sumitomo AT (never heard of the brand but they are all-weather and also have the winter rating). Maybe the Goodyear's are known for flats and I'll be OK with the Michelins? Thanks for any feedback. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
