Re: Rugged Brown Summit arrived - but I didn't buy it after all

The dealer wouldn't swap out the tires for you?

Maybe you should change your screenname to netHOTTery... (just joking with you).

Re: Rugged Brown Summit arrived - but I didn't buy it after all

Obviously I'm a pushover since I knew I didn't want to crap Fortera tires that come with the 20" wheels and I didn't threaten to walk if they didn't swap them out for performance tires..... I must also be a fool for dropping $500 yesterday to get them swapped for Yokohama's instead of trying to extort the dealer.

All kidding aside, what I meant to say is aside from my Porsche's I usually end up replacing the factory tires with tires more suited to my driving style. If I'm lucky enough to get a tire from the factory I like I consider it a gift. I can't imagine walking away from the purchase because it didn't have the right tires but then again, I can't imagine ordering a Summit with the Off Road package. The polished 20" wheels and tires alone could be sold and pay for new 18" aftermarkets (or factory since they are only $185 each online) with A/T tires AND the skid plates and tow hooks. In the end you would have it exactly the way you wanted it and you'd be driving it right now.

Yeah, well maybe I should go to another dealer and change to the Hemi - as long as I order by 5/16 if I can believe your post.

Re: Rugged Brown Summit arrived - but I didn't buy it after all

^^^ mjw930 - You always have solid, well researched advice. What tires do you recommend for the 20" wheels for non-off-road use? Yokohama's?

Maybe the dealer will call you back and say "April Fools!!!"....but then again, you may have scared him off!

I only have about 50 miles on the Yoko's so I'm not ready to pass judgement.

I'll post up impressions in this thread: Which tires should I buy, you be the judge

Man, at a time like this, you really find out who your friends are! You're the kind of guy who, when hearing that his buddy broke up with his girlfriend, asks for her number.

But then, what could we expect from a guy who puts "Huskyliners" in his JGC when it's clear from the picture that he owns German Shepherds?

Re: Rugged Brown Summit arrived - but I didn't buy it after all

These dealers know that Rugged Brown Summits are hard to find. I have made contact with three dealers that have RB Summits on the lot or in transit (like the one I am waiting for) within 750 miles of my home. ALL of them start with MSRP. When I asked them to price from invoice, they said NO. When I told them I am TL member, they said not on this vehicle. One today said his boss told him to price the RB above MSRP and tell me due to Japan's earthquake, no more RB Summits are being made (i.e. the pigment shortage).

I'm thinking about writing a nasty letter to the dealership - kind of like the one that Arnold Schwarzenegger wrote to the CA Assembly .

For those unfamiliar with that story - here it is: http://tinyurl.com/yhvk4gb

Re: Rugged Brown Summit arrived - but I didn't buy it after all

Yep --- with Rugged Brown on restriction it will be hard to come by for a while. Still, the dealer should have just swapped the tires to make you happy...it isn't like they couldn't use those tires somewhere else. But as we know, most Jeep dealers aren't looking out for the mid to long term...only the short term profit right now.
