Re: 13k yokos

My second wk2 SRT Jeep and I'm on original All season Scorpion Verdes still at 25k miles. Traded my 2012 at 28k miles and it was about time to change, looks like this 2014 will be the same. I run factory alignment.

As of right now, I'm paying the $1800 and replacing with the same All Season Pirelli's. No cost savings in having to buy the Yokohama or other similar crap choices twice in the 26k+ miles I seem to be getting out of mine.

Re: 13k yokos

I would suspect that you are diligent at tire rotations. That would help. If you flipped the tires on the rim (assuming Pirelli allowed that) that would help more, and finally even I'm still at Factory SRT spec, just at the conservative end of the tolerance. Perhaps you are too as 17-19,000 miles seems to be the average of these on SRT's.

Re: 13k yokos

Thank you all for your thoughts. I'm working with the dealer and such to find out a solution. I'll let you know what happens.
