I have to replace my tires and am considering the Nitto NT 450 Extreme Performance in 275/50-17. While researching I noticed other Dakota R/T owners had many good things to say. Any thoughts, guys?:)

It was dark when I got home this evening, but I'll get some pics tomorrow. I wound up having to have all four ball joints and the left control arm bushing replaced when I had it aligned today. Needless to say it drives much better now.:D

I also had the shop flush my PS system, coolant, brakes, and trans fluid; they were running a special. I got a free oil and filter change with full synthetic oil out of the deal. I guess you could say my truck spent a day at the spa.:)

nothing like a da at the spa to give you some pep!!

how many miles does your r/t have? im thinking i need to replace the ball joints on mine too. had to replace the stabilizer bar end links and bar bushings, probably need a few more bushings replaced though

180,000 miles. I'm exploring what it would cost to "freshen up" the engine as I intend to use my truck to run up and down I-95 at between 300 and 600 miles at a whack.
