I picked up a set (4) All-Season Pirellis in September to replace the Pirelli summer tires that came on the car when I bought it. I had them rotated and balanced two weeks ago ahead of a road trip. Half way thru the trip, I had to have the fronts rebalanced. They developed a bad vibration between 75-85 and since I was doing mostly Interstate driving, this was the speed window I was driving in. Anyway, upon return I took the car back to the tire shop, and they determined on of the four Pirellis was bad. They never said "slipped belt", but I've had one before, and that's exactly what it felt like. Anyway, getting the new tire today. Just sharing. Watch your tires.

Mine did the same thing from day one...but replaced with PS4s so never diagnosed the Pirellis. Good info Plasticman.

Pirelli’s suck! I’m just living with a minor vibration at 75 mph. I really don’t want anyone messing with my wheels and don’t want to spend money on new tires since they only have 6,700 miles on them.

You do know new tires on the car when purchased are covered under warranty?

A friend with a WB Cat had his stock Pirelli come apart. Luckily it didn't rip the fender off. Are Dodge and Pirelli going to be the new Ford and Firestone?

Same here...I just lived with it 8,500 miles or so and switched to the PS4s. I know all this would have been covered under warranty but didn't want people messing with it.

OP glad you got it sorted. I had to replace all 4 Pirelli Scorpion Verdes under warranty on my 17 GCSRT when I bought it new. None of them would load balance even close within specs. FCA made it right for the trouble but I will never buy any Pirelli tires ever again. Will do Conti DWS06 or Michelin PS A/S 3 for the JGC SRT pretty soon.

I'm switching to Conti's when the All seasons are done. Fortunately, it's not too much longer and I can put my summer tires back on.

My summer tires are in storage until it warms up.
