No thanks. I try to stay south of the Mason-Dixon line if at all possible.

According to the Mfgs. specs, the Pirellis are lighter than last years Goodyears Everything that I quoted is from Mfgs. specs. Not my opinions!

I would too if I could...I've learned to think of the "petina" as a good thing, you know, a protective layer

I hear you. I like that shine, you keep your petina. Come on down, the weathers fine......about 80 so far this week and sunny every day. We could actually use some rain, starting to get dry for this time of year. Almost time for the farmers to start planting corn.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Sorry, haven't been paying attention....

Has it been confirmed if Australia will receive any MY16? Just a handful of 75th anniversary? Anyone know when they are expected to land here in Oz?

Reason I ask is that a distant relative took delivery of a MY15 today and wondering why they did not wait for an MY16 (or 17 for that matter) if they are already on the boat.

Re: 2016 Grand Cherokee - Features & Changes

Does anybody know exactly which tires the factory is installing on 2016 Overlands with ORAII/18" wheels right now? I have one on order with a scheduled build date of 5/18/16.

I've tried searching extensively here and consulted the wk2jeeps wheel/tire page but I'm seeing conflicting answers.

I'm trying to figure out what rubber it comes with so I know how pressing the need will be to upgrade the tires.
