Bought a set of Firestone Destination ATís. Stock size.
Poorly balanced. Very poor. Returned Jeep for a day for let them fiddle with it. They replaced two. Better, but not good. Took it to a place that has a road force balancer; better under 60, worse over 60. Like... the whole vehicle jiggles and the mirrors are bouncing around. Uncomfortable to drive.
Back to tire place. They will replace them with something else no hassle but the guy said he spent two hours indexing them and promised they're round. Said I won't like BFG K02's if I don't like the Destination AT's. I tried to tell him that they're quiet and I like them, they're just not balanced or they are octagonal or something.
Tire can still be round and have a heavy spot in it, right? I mean, you can only balance a tire exactly proper for one speed. Am I crazy here or is he just trying to get me to buy a Michelin highway tire that he knows will be round?
Anyway, they will replace them no hassle with something else.
I can get:
BFG K02 265/70/17 - 1cm shorter
BFG K02 275/70/17 - Touch bit taller, 20mm wider (Will these fit?)
Bridgestone Dueler A/T Revo 2 - stock size, 255/75/17
The only "problem" I have is these are all LT rated tires vs. the P-metric's that are on there now so they are concerned I wonít like them because of the harder tire. But again, I don't think they understand that I dislike the ride of the tires I have, they're just vibrating like a massage chair above 60 - Which I do not believe any modest AT tire should be doing. Am I wrong? What would you do?
Any input or thoughts is highly appreciated!
