...Just dropped it off and will have pics of the Toyo's/Goliaths posted soon. Fingers crossed. NERVE racking

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

I got all 4 installed and balanced with protection plan for $900. I could have done $800 but I opted for a warranty. Price IMO was fair. I love the tires too, they arent as good as the runflats performance wise but they are nice and quiet!

We must not be talking about the same tire then...what size are you running? Stock 295/45? That is a great deal!

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

So they are on!!

Added: thermoquiets, Toyo Proxes ST II's and dark grey/charcoal metallic Goliaths...gorilla lugs and match painted center caps. Only driven 15 miles but pleased so far. Feel is much lighter in the steering wheel (these are 5 lbs lighter per tire than the P Run flats iirc). Much softer with the little imperfections in the road that I used to feel. Front rotors are being replaced tomorrow under the 7/11/15 recall...will continue to post my feedback after a couple hundred miles. I must say that I love the tread pattern on these, and with a 50k mile warranty I think they will work out just fine

Re: Replacement Tires non-run flats

Is the rotor recall just for 2014 models?

Bummer!! You still have your stockers? You could put them back on and get a free set of fronts as back-ups...it came out 7/11/15 so if you did it before that then you wouldn't have known...it is for a difficult to replicate high pitch squeak

The recall is for 2012-2015 SRT's built before May 2015...it is for the stupid squeaking that was very prominent on mine, even after I switched pads to thermoquiets...although after 3 das it was hit or miss. You can find the TSB on wk2jeeps.com or PM me your email and I will send you a pic I have that details the recall
