Hi,

I'm planning to replace my stock tires with BFGoodrich LT315/70R17 on my Rebel, and was wondering if that could void the warranty.

I guess it COULD but I think it would be a stretch for the dealer to prove that the tires were to cause of anything. A lot of it depends on the dealership you bring it to and the relationship you have with them. I can tell you, my local dealership is really cool about everything. Shoot, most of their pre owned vehicles (still under warranty) will get rims/tires put on the vehicle before gets put for sale on the used lot.

Thanks Imeavtitn, though I haven't picked up my truck yet but given the relationship I am expecting to have with my dealership (after saying no to extended warranty and specially tire warranty) it's not going to be a sweet talk. so probably will take my chances.

You can always try getting word from somewhere higher up, like someone at RAM USA, and surely their word being passed around at a dealer would get taken seriously, or at least it should.

Either way it will help to hear it from a level of RAM that has little to no reason to give you a false answer for whatever reason.

No worries. The only thing I can think of it voiding the warranty is suspension parts, wheel bearings, end links, ect... and POSSIBLY the drivetrain as bigger tires will add more stress on those components.

At the end of the day, people get trucks and install bigger tires and lift kits all the time so it's not new territory for warranty claim individuals at dealerships. Some claims specialists are more forgiving than others though.
