The lady said "That's the reason"
I have 56000 miles on my 2004 Dodge Ram. Street driving only. This is my third set of Goodyear Wranglers. I only buy them because they came on the truck so I figured I'd keep them original. Did I mention this is my third set of these "50,000 mile" tires? That means I have been getting less than 20,000 miles between tire changes! So, while I was at the tire store, I asked the tire advisor why my tires kept wearing out so soon. She said "what kind are they?" I told her. And she said, "That's the reason" She said she sees a lot of pick-ups wearing these Goodyear tires out prematurely. She told me next time, check in with them first and they can give me a list of tires that they believe are better deals. And, I plan on doing that. In about 20,000 miles. As much as I like keeping my Ram original, I just can't see popping $800 for new tires every 20K miles. Sorry Goodyear. As I see it, you had three opportunities to show your stuff, and you didn't pass muster.
