The closet discount tire is far enough that I'd use more gas then it would cost to have them mounted here. But yes they would be for the new truck. M/T's for looks and I would be using them as M/T's as well, they would be a strictly summer tire. My fx rims with studded LT275/65R18E winters will be kept for the new truck.

Honda odyssey sucks a big piece.

Dodge wouldn't be engineering it, it would probably be an existing FPT (Fiat Powertrain) engine used in CNH products (CNH being owned by Fiat). FPT was part of a partnership with Cummins back around the 90s in the European Engine Alliance. FPT engines are quite similar to Cummins but aren't close enough to share parts.

A couple are ok. But the FEW people I know that own them are seeing rust holes on cars under 5 years of age.

Makes sense. I was wondering what you were thinking as far as running MTs in winter haha.

I didn't think people who bought HD trucks for their intended purpose cared about mpg

Ice is never fun no matter what tires you have.
