My 2014 has the Michelin Ltx 265 70 r18 load range e

Excellent highway tire, very quiet.

Terrible on a wet road.

I absolutely hate them for winter driving, in order to get any traction I have to drop them to 50 psi.

My initial search for a replacement tire/rim was because of the rough, loud and wandering characteristics of the GoodYear Wrangler SR-A. I believe it is a pos tire. I searched the internet for a reason why when driving my truck that I am constantly fighting the road, adjusting even while on the flattest highways in my area. I've never had this experience with my previous GMC and Chev trucks.

When I was last at the dealership for the third wheel alignment to try and centre the steering wheel, there was a note that said there were no recalls. After searching the net, I found that there is a TSB for experiences similar to mine. It is a shame that I as a new vehicle owner have to go and find TSBs that affect my vehicle. I thought these things were sent to dealerships so they are in the know when doing service on vehicles.

I am going to try and attach the TSB, it may already exist on this site as I did find it on another GM forum.
