The conti's have got to be the worst riding tire I have driven on. I am glad mine came with the Michelins.

I mentioned this before. My dealership swapped my Conti's for Michelins before I picked up my truck....great customer care.

If you guys are diggin' the Michelin's that much, I can't imagine how crappy the Conit's are. The Michelin's are nice but are too soft for this truck, they feel squishy and are wearing fast. Here's a little video I did after seeing Epic's dual stab setup installed, you can see what looks like quite a bit of flex in the sidewall. I can't say that all tires don't do this, but it seems excessive (as well as the wheel itself flopping around, which it'll be back at the dealer for):

You can't post something like this without pics.
