    Tremor Tires

    What are some tire suggestions I should use for my Tremor?

    Stock tires are Scorpion STR. These are different from four door trucks that have the Scorpion ATR. The STR is a "premium highway" tire. I want to keep something similar.

    My tires are getting low and the outside edge of the front tires are bald. I think I need to have alignment adjustment to angle the front wheel in a little. With so much body roll on a truck, it wears the outside considerably faster than the tire itself.

    I'm extremely happy with my Cooper Discoverer SRX. I consider them an "aggressive" all season... not to be confused with All Terrain.
    Best tire I've ever used in the rain, they're wearing great, they're quiet and have excellent dry handling as well. I have winter tires for the cold season, so don't ask me about that.

    I will look into that suggestion. I drive in snow, this is why I need all seasons.

    I ended up going with the BFG Advantage T/A Sport LT which is a all weather tire and so far i have been really impressed with its road manners (way better than the hankooks the 18 came with). Time will tell if they do well in winter but i did gain a bit of mileage as well

    I love those Michelins and have had good luck with them on trucks since the early 90's.

    Have no clue how they would be in snow since..... Well, Texas Gulf Coast.

    I'll admit I have had a set or two of car tires that weren't impressive though.

    However, if my memory serves, that tire has been thoroughly bashed around here by a few fellas, so maybe they aren't a consistent tire?

    Are you referring to the Michelin I posted? Bad reviews on here? I need to research more on comments on here. On paper, they look great.

    Nothing wrong with the LTX M/S for what you need (probably will be best in the winter compared to the others), but will give up a little in dry handling department (more tread squirm).
