Stay away from Firestone

I have the Firestone Transforce HT's on my 2012 3500 Ram with only 20'000 miles on them and they flat out suck ! These are the worst tire I ever had on a truck. The truck came with them and Firestone must have been giving them away. Unless you are in 4 wheel in any kind of snow you go no where even on a flat road. I have heard really good things about Cooper Tires and Hankook tires but I have a problem with any tire made off shore, just don't know if I would trust them.

You can look tire prices up on tirerack dot com and samsclub dot com for a wide range of tire sizes and makes. I used the online prices to negotiate with my local-owned independent Goodyear dealer (not a factory store) and he gave me a break in the price. With the $160 rebate that was offered i paid about a $1,000 for 4. Have had free balancing and rotation on them also.

They seem to me to be very quiet on the road , even with an aggressive tread that gives me good snow traction. Turning lean on the '01 Ram Van I use as TV is almost non-existent. These tires are tough! Glad that I bought them.
Excellent choice, IMO, best tire for a tow vehicle.
