I recently bought a 2008 Dodge at power Chrysler, Dodge, phoenix Arizona before I bought the vehicle, the dealer had sent it out to have various alterations made. At the time I bought it I thought it had very expensive off-road wheels and tires, of the type I had never seen before. I later came to find out these tires and wheels were made for a semi-truck. Further, this set up has not been tested properly and is new. I don¿T think anyone knows what putting giant, heavy semi wheels and tires on a regular truck will do to it. I had a lot of problems with the vehicle and brought it back to the dealer 4 different times to repair the same problem - having to do with vibrations in the undercarriage, wobbling and shaking and hopping. After they had it for the fourth time, and they had removed the semi truck tires and wheels and replaced them with regular tires and wheels, I was test driving it on a 4-lane divided road and the wheels started shaking so badly they caused the truck to shake violently throwing me around in the seat of the cab and then the truck lost the ability to be controlled and leaped into the other lane. If I had been on an undivided road and there had been on-coming vehicles I could have had a head-on collision. I have told them about the problems and I wrote them. The secretary confirmed he gave the letter to the manager, Warren miller. My miller did not even give me the courtesy of a reply. Dodge dealers are continuing to do these alterations to their vehicles in Arizona - perhaps nationwide. I saw another new Dodge truck in the alteration shop having the same thing done to it when I took mine to be fixed. It may be popular because it looks really nice? this type of alteration has not been properly tested and it is not safe. I ran into a person who had the same alteration done on his truck and he said it shook and vibrated so badly he had to replace a set of hubs every month until he finally sold the vehicle.
