Just took my 05 4X4 KC SE to get the tires balanced. Truck has 1200 miles. They did a load test and 3 out of 4 were bad. Waiting on a new set of Michelins to get to the dealer. I've never had much luck with Generals.

Excellent question. I've never heard of the term either.
General tires do leave a lot to be desired. When Nissan stuck their neck out to take this brand on they only verified what my opinion is of General Tires......... :?

Do you think there's a chance to get them replaced for free??

They wre going to only replace 3 of the 4 and I didn't want any Generals. I ended up paying a bit more for a full set of Michelins. I couldn't believe the difference in the Generals and Michelins. This thing rides Cadillac smooth now where before it rode like a square wheeled buckboard.

Same "GENERAL" Problem

I also had problems with my tires. I took my 2006 Fronty CC LE in and the dealer rebalanced all 4 tires, I took it home and called back the next day. I took it back to the Dealer and they also did the Balance with the Road force applied and found the right rear with a 30lb road force reading (I think the spec is 12lbs), they put a new tire on and it road balanced to 12lbs and I still have the rear of my truck "Hopping" between 40~50mph. My Left rear balanced to 12lbs also. We didn't do the front. There was a noticable difference, but still not what it should be.

I have been contiplating just buying a new set of tires and was wondering what kind of difference it would make. I didn't want to spend the money and it not be a whole lot better, but it sounds like it is worth the investment.

What Michelins did you get? I was looking at some michelins but they didn't have as high of a customer rating as some of the others, but my first thought was Michelins.
