    Looking to replace (remove and save originals) the factory tires. I hate that the stock tires pick up everything and sling stuff around. Sounds like you drove through mud and slinging crap all the time. Anybody had luck finding a tire that won't do that?

    I don't know really if you want that hard of a tire. The reason the tire picks up things is because of the soft rubber compound. If you had something really hard it would be less likely to do that but at the cost of not performing very well. If your car is a daily driver then maybe you could get away with something less than a summer tire.

    Owned for 5 months and right now the car has 174 miles on it! Probably put 500 a year on it if I am lucky.

    Are you going to drag race or track it ever?

    Was planning on it when I first got the car. But have decided to only drive it once in a while. I will buy a used in a few years and play with that one.

    Kind of best of both worlds one to put away and one for today. So I am guessing your just annoyed with the rocks the stockers kick up? In that case, I would not worry too much do Xpel everywhere you think a rock could potentially hit the car and do the mopar mud flaps. That's what I am running and believe me I don't think mine will see 1,000 miles a year.
