    i just bought my truck and i wanna swap out the tires asap...i'm curious if the factory bridgestones r worth anything decent when they r brand new (600 miles on them)? and do certain shops give you credit toward the purchase of new ones if you hand them over your brand new ones? thanks guys....

    Not sure if they are worth anything (value-wise) but they are definitely worthless on the truck.

    I hydro-plane on water and can't get anywhere in the snow. The fill up with mud very quickly and do not clean out at all. I figure they will be gone around the 30K mark (already at 15k).

    So you know, the duelers that come on the truck are different than the duelers sold in the store. Factory trucks come with a softer tread so the truck test drives better at the dealership. They also wear quicker.

    Goodyear Wranglers are the same way. Our Jeep Grand went through the factory Wranglers in 20K miles. Purchased new, they have a 60K mile warranty.
