Default Continental TerrainContact AT's

Hi,
I have been looking for a couple weeks for replacements for the P275/65/18 Wrangler SR-A's that came on my 2014 SCrew 5.0 4x4 w/ Off Road pkg. At 46,000 the factory tires were spent (maybe 5K left but I don't run'em to unsafe). Seems like the majority of trucks in my neck of the woods (North MS) are either running BF Goodrich KO2's or Toyo Open Country AT2's. I decided against "E" range tires due to cost, ride, mpg, noise, etc. I basically wanted a replacement for the stock tires with just a bit more off road capability. I got the Continental TerrainContacts installed yesterday for $808 out the door at local Ford dealer. If someone had swapped the Wranglers for these without telling me, I wouldn't have noticed! They are just as quiet and soft riding as the Wranglers. I drove about 150 miles yesterday and saw no decrease in mpg either. They have white letters also but I went blackwall out. They are not very aggressive tires and I haven't tried off road yet, but for what I do they will be fine. I never got stuck with the factory tires in 4WD. Just thought I'd give a quick opinion of them.

You still liking the Terrain Contacts? Have you had them in snow or offroad at all yet?

A couple guys on the Raptor forum are running them. The only complaint that I saw was that they flat spot after sitting a while. But after driving for a few miles they come out of it and the ride smooths back out.

I have been in some pretty sloppy conditions off road after it rained a few days and was forced to switch to 4-Hi to keep going but the only tires that would have made it in 2WD would have been true mud tires probably. I think they did a little better than stock in the mud. Road manners are very good and that is what I was looking for.
A couple days ago I was scraping some dirt off the sidewall with my foot and as I pressed my shoe down the side I saw the actual tread block deform some (enough to notice it) next to where I was pressing. I was thinking if the pressure from my foot on the sidewall was enough to deform the tread block a little (I had to be moving my foot to see the sort of wave or ripple in the tread) the sidewall must be pretty thin which would explain the light weight, good mileage and smooth ride. I havenít tried that test on other truck tires but it got me to thinking if I drove in the woods or on construction sites or to dumps where the sidewalls could be exposed to stobs or rocks, I would be more comfortable with load range E tires and would get the KO2ís.
I am on pavement 98% of the time however and am still happy with the tires. Whether I will buy them again will probably depend on how well they wear. Good luck.

That is why I try to always get E rated tires. All my pickups that had P or C ratings always got a flat over the 60,000 to 70,000 miles. Always had to plug them. Running E 10 plys I never had a flat or a puncture. Could be just luck.

I've had these tires for awhile and am very happy with them. For some time now I suspected they flat spot and see I'm not the only one who's mentioned this but not a big deal. Most of my driving is highway and they perform well. Better than the goodyear tires the truck came with.
