I have a set of Kumho KR21, which is the worst tire I have ever had on a car or truck. These China 80K tires are a big joke. The ride is choppy, the tread is really narrow and it shakes the wheel on any kind of bad pavement. I have had the tires re-balanced a bunch of times and are still awful. I don't expect my truck to ride like a Lincoln (or a Taurus for that matter), but there has to be better tires out there.
The tire size that is currently on the truck is P215/75R15. I would like to either use the stock tire size or go with P225/75R15. My question is, for ride quality, would it be much of a difference is I get the 75 or 70 series? My truck never leaves the road but I travel in snow conditions quite often.
I am looking at these two tires:
70 series: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....toModel=Ranger
Reg 2wd XLT&autoModClar=
75 series: http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....omCompare1=yes
Of course, I would welcome any other suggestions.
