I won't run Michelins on anything I own! I've tried them on both my passenger vehicle and my Harley and had bad experiences with both. On the passenger vehicle (a Dodge Caravan) every one of the tires separated before they wore out.Complain to Michelin about their BFG's quality. The only thing the same about the original 1970's "real" T/A radial and todays tires, is the mold. The actual tire is a lower quality Uniroyal green tire.
Michelin purchased BFG and Uniroyal back in 1988. Different tire today.
I hear you but, I must say I’ve ran them all my other cars for a long time. Never on a Mopar though. I bought my wife a play car in 2001, C5 vette. The Goodyear F1’s that came on the car were probably a great track tire but, regular driving, not so much. And only made it 12k miles (no racing, just cruisin) I replaced them with Michelin pilot sports. Whole different car. And for run flats, quiet with good traction etc. Also have em on a caddy with no issues. This is not intended to prop them up, just sharing my personal experience with Michelin’s. Ask for working at a NCD we sell a lot of Michelin with practically zero complaints. My boss did want em on his resto mod 70 cuda and they were dangerous with lots of HP and no traction. Couldn’t talk him out of it though. Now for BFG truck tires, like the AT K/O 2 all terrain, I run the 10 ply and it’s a great tire. Expensive though. The BFG’s on my cuda are simply for cruising, sketchy traction but like the ride and look. Sorry to be long winded. JMOI won't run Michelins on anything I own!

Suspension is stock with the ecception of weld on stiffners for lower control arms and a few poly bushings to stiffen a couple of things.I did a lot of measuring and measuring again, but in the end I ended up with exactly what I wanted. tires fit like a glove. 1/2 " of clearance between tire and leaf and 1/2 " between tire and wheelwell View attachment 82950 View attachment 82951
