Replacement Tires

Hello,

Anyone have opinions on replacement tires. I want to use the stock rims on my 04 Lightning, but am not crazy about using GoodYears. Other brands do not have the correct size, so should I move down to a 275/55 or up to a 305/45??
Only have 10K miles on it but am tired of shaking down the road.

Thanks,

Jasper

Shaking down the road? You arn't mistaking that for wheel hop/axle wrap are you?

Tires not round

Nope. I have one tire that has a roadforce of over 50 no matter how you turn it on the rim. Just a bad tire.

I see that Nitto Tires have one in the proper size.

Think I will try it.

Thanks

Goodyear, Nitto, and Toyo make the 295/45 18 for the truck.

Goodyear Eagle F1, Pro- great dry and wet weather traction, oem tire, sticky, best handling con- price $210+ tread life not long

Nitto 555- Great dry weather, sticky, good for dragstrip.(especialy 555r) con- Still $, not great in the rain, treadlife shorter than oem.

Toyo Proxies- Pro- cheapest 295/45/18 tires, longer treadlife. Con- harder than the other tires, so it dosent stick well.

also Hankooks is suposed to have a tire that will fit.

I like the Goodyears myself, best all-around for me.
