Yup, These things are indeed (pickup truck like).........A cab toward the front and a bed in the back. Guess which end is heavier and the 6 liter with a little kick of the gas in a curve that is maybe wet.......will cause ends to swap.

I recall a few R owners learning that at Daytona Speedway last Spring.
I had a 2002 (new) Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited that had the RSA on it and lost complete control in a turn
Mind you, I was being a bit of an ass and wound up sideways in a ditch - no issues except digging some grass out of the rims
However, I should not have lost control, she lost spun out on me.

Flassh has not had great success with the Nitto's (which I have)
If I had to do something again today, I think I would go with Bruce's Continental's

All this discussion on tires, no one has brought up the subject barking. On my automatic I can get a pretty good bark from first to second a little bark from 2nd to 3rd. So what would you Tire experts suggest for a loud bark and a quiet bark. Just inquiring minds want to know. By the way for all you garage Queens, barking is the tires breaking loose on the pavement making that sound that is good to the ears.
