Thats exactly how they feel on my '08. They look great and off road they are wonderful. I just hate to let them go with the trade and have to fork out 1500.00 later to replace em. I live near Sumter SC. I'll check Ballentine out for sure. I'm kinda down to 2 f350s that I've found. One in edgefield and one near the outer banks of NC.
You're not going to bug me ever, I like this site and talking about our great trucks. The tires are really great but they do have an odd feel to them compared to regular highway type tires. They are squishy, create lots of play in the steering, I can turn the wheel two inches either direction and nothing happens. Mpg is down almost by 2. They're loud. They're pretty rough too, lots of vibration.
All this is normal for that type of tire and I don't mind it, I still like them. I'm just telling you how they effected the truck. The tires have amazing off road grip, amazing on road performance in heavy rain. When towing they're just a little unstable because they are so squishy.
Where are you? Thought about coming to greenwood to Ballentine? It's a great dealership and I'm very tight with the service manager.
The thermostats are no longer part of the tsb so you can not attribute the failure to that. Most likely you would just be spinning your wheels, the service manager is not likely to refund your money and then attempt to warranty the radiator. Again, both the radiator and one of the o-rings on the radiator hoses have to be leaking to qualify for the 5 yr/100,000 mile warranty.
