Tire Jack Mode - Changing all 4 tires

Discovered I had a very large screw embedded on the shoulder of the rear tire today. Flat as a board!

Changed the wheel on our JGC with QLII using Jack Mode and put the spare on. Going in tomorrow to have a set of 4 Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus's put on, as I have 28k on the original Michelins. The Michelin's do have some meat left on them but I don't want to screw up the diffs etc putting on a single replacement tire.

The question is:
Can you change all 4 wheels on a QLII suspension using Jack Mode or is this only for single wheel changing?

Can't help you with that answer, but would love to know what you think of the Pirellis once you have them on. Are you staying with the he stock size?

Yes. Haven't got much choice really as our local Discount Tire only has the 265/60-18's in stock. We live in a small town in Texas!

You can change as many as you want. Jack mode just turns off the air suspension adjustments.

Yes. It turns off automatic leveling.

Re: Tire Jack Mode - Changing all 4 tires

Thanks Guys .

Yes, Jack Mode worked on raising all 4 without a hitch .
Took it in to our local Discount Tire where they checked the other three and, as I thought, the tire with the screw in it was not repairable. They also discovered that after 27,900 miles, the stock Latitude Tours were either at 4/32nd or 5/32nd tread depths, so it was a no brainer to install 4 new Pirelli Scorpion Verde Plus. Plus SWMBO felt better about the expense!!!

I do like the tread design on the Pirellis. They have a solid rib adjacent to the outer shoulder tread blocks. We are off on a 2500 mile road trip with our travel trailer on Friday so I'll give y'all a "considered opinion" when we get back.
