Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

Michelin says;

"Our leading tire for SUVs and Crossovers features impressive on-road handling and comfort, plus long tread life and outstanding fuel efficiency."

Jeep calls it on/off road. There's no legitimate reason for that.

Re: 2014 Grand Cherokee - Ordering Information and Pricing

A million or more of the exact same tire = a lot of legitimate rea$ons for Chrysler.

Michelin makes an on/off road tire in that size for around the same price. Whatever Jeeps reasons their claims seem to be fraudulent.

I think you're right.

If he doesn't switch them out, I'm probably stuck with those ghetto cruisers.

B
My dealer said the granite color is the same for Dodge and Jeep.

Don't know if I believe it.

I just checked out a couple exports with them.

And whoever has this black SRT sitting outside my door, with black vapor wheels, VIN 125956, you sir have made a very nice purchase!

And whoever has 130825.. I'm jealous.

Nice combos ladies and gents.. Very nice!
But don't Export models differ from North American models? e.g. Bi-Xenon headlights are standard on exports, but not on domestic models, so you get a completely different headlight getting a Laredo in the U.S. compared to what Europe and Austrailia get. Milous posted a list of ALL wheels and there is a different code for the 18" Laredo wheel vs. the 18" Limited wheel. Maybe the Limited 18 is polished and the U.S. Laredo 18" is not, or maybe completely different. Please let us know if you find a U.S. built Laredo with the 18" wheels. I know they've been built as I can see that type of build in delivery status on dealer websites now.

They are literally buying these tires by the railcar load for GC, Durango, ram, and probably a couple other models. They get volume pricing if all the same tire.

I agree with you, I wish they would at least fit the LTX a/t 2 for OA1 and OA2.
