Don't you have a copy of "BMW CCA douchebag weekly" to read or something?
Your post yesterday "Got the new M/S 2's mounted today. Haven't driven it much, but so far so good! Ride is very much the same as with the Lattitudes, perhaps a TINY bit more road noise, but the Lattitudes were well broken in (almost 40k mile) and the LTX is new. The tires are MUCH better looking, this tire is what the Jeep should have come with IMHO."

Just one example of your purdy tire fetish.

Jeep put the Latitudes on for the gas mileage. Let us know what kind of gas mileage your new purdy tires get compared to old fugly Latitudes. Every tenth of a mpg helps Jeep's average.

LOL, commenting that a new set of tires happen to look good and buying tires because they look good are two different things. The tires I bought are overwhelmingly well reviewed, many people here have them on their WK2s (MANY threads here about these tires), I've had them on vehicles before. Guess who else told me that if he owned the Jeep they were the tires he would install? Your buddy the owner of Radial Tire. So...to say you're reaching here is an understatement.

Who cares about gas mileage when the Lattitudes are IMHO dangerously inept at handling wet or snowy weather? PLENTY of people have the LTX M/S here and have reported no reduction in fuel mileage. Even if I had a reduction in fuel mileage I would be happy to trade that for a tire with much better traction. These tires complement and showcase the Jeep's capabilities instead of holding it back as the Lattitudes do.

I'm sure you pay a fuel mileage penalty when you waste your money on snow tires in a climate with average temps in the winter around 50 degrees...so shut your yap. You're in one post waving your hard on for safety around when someone doesn't like the color of their fog lights, yet you're commenting on me buying safer tires because I may pay a fuel economy penalty?

The dead pedal is actually a very dense piece of foam UNDER the carpet.

Interesting, serves the purpose I guess.

I installed my weather tech mats and they cover only the lower half of the feux dead peddle, sure would be nice to have it all covered.

Agreed. I haven't noticed issues at 65-75mph on mine.

Agreed. The fog lamps are basically worthless. Since most people drive with them on when there is no fog, I think its more of a fashion statement then practical function.
