Tires on 2019

It was a disappointment to see Firestone Transforce on the truck. Now I have to go spend over a $1k on some BFG KO IIs. Stock size on truck is
285/60/20 and the crazy thing is if you go to a 285/65/20 you can save over $60 per tire.
The big “D” chain store will only give $100 per tire credit for the factory tires so it’s still about $1200 to put some decent tires on there.

We go the the mountains weekly in winter so we need a winter rated tire and then to the beach in the summer in DEEP SUGAR SAND and the BFG’s have never let me down.

With the Firestone’s I spin just trying to get across the grass on the back of the property.

They give credit for factory tires? Hmmm.....

Oh Yeah, You can see a couple of the Rams in my sig and had two 2015 blacked out 2500’s one was HEMI the other was CTD and every truck that was the first thing I did was stop at “D” tires and traded for BFG’s or Duratracs AND usually got more than $100 tire but they said there isn’t a big demand for 285/60/20.

My name is the same on the other forum and you can go to my gallery and see most of my trucks.

No not rich, just had a small business and maybe had two at one time but would fix them up drive them a year or so and sell them.

What does that link have to do with tires, nothing ......it’s all about bolt patterns?

My only guess is that this thread is only about some of the 2019's. I looked at it because it was about 2019 tires but has nothing to do with the 2019 tires on the 3500 DRW. Different size, different manufacture, different bolt pattern for the wheel.

The thread title should be 20" tires on 2019.

California roads suck with either truck.

No, if you read my post it’s about disappointment with Firestone tires being put on the new trucks. I only mention sizes to let folks know that if they replace the tires the 285/65s are cheaper than the factory size of 285/60

I would be happy to have the mods move this “thread” to the “wheel and tire SECTION”.

But the link is to a”thread “ dedicated to 3500 bolt patterns and my “thread” is about tires. So I made a mistake by posting in the general section so ... my bad.

Jimmy, make sure you clink a link so you have the required knowledge on said subject before jumping in to correct me.

N of 60,
I apologize if my response offended you, I am not a keyboard commando. I am an old guy that my wife calls grumpy at time and maybe my post came across that way so again no offense meant.

Guys,

These forums are incredible and here to help each other and they have helped me on countless occasions and I have taken the time to share on this or the other forum when I could given helpful input.

I read your post but the title of the thread isn't about your disappointment in the Firestone tires. The title is simply Tires on 2019. So, the topic to the reader is about 2019 tires. I could add to the thread and discuss disappointment with the Nexen tires being on the 2019.

Yup, and when I click on that link, this is a shot of the page it takes me to-
That is the 2019+ tires and wheels sub forum. The bolt pattern thread just happens to be the only thread started in that sub-forum currently. You would click on the post new thread button that the green arrow is pointing to to start a new thread about tires or wheels, such as this one.
