Our new 2016 Dodge Ram 5500 crew cab at work needs new tires. One of my guys called me this morning and said they are pretty near bald.
Truck has about 30k miles on it. 200 miles a day for the last 6 months added up pretty quick!
From the factory it came with a "steer tire" with a pretty much straight grove, and a pretty unaggressive rear tire.
I want to go with an "AT" tire all around. Since when we are off road traveling some of the muddy haul roads the truck is sliding and spinning all over the place! Also being so darn heavy it's a major PITA traveling some of these roads a regular pickup truck doesn't even need 4 wheel drive on.
Is there a problem with going with an AT tire on the front? Or will it cause problems?
I have no experience buying tires for these heavy trucks. One tire shop we use said no problem doing that, the other said only to run a steering tire as it will cause a lot of vibrations on the highway?
