Angry 2013 f350 4door handling???

I just purchased a 2013 F350 4x4 4 door. It has Michelin 275/65/20" tires on it. It drives fine around town but at 65-75mph the truck is all over the place. I brought the truck back and they replaced a rear tire and they said the side wall was shot. I thought it was better but it is still a problem. Towing my boat it is even worse and actually gets the boats swerving as well. They are now checking air pressure and front end alignment. Has anyone else exspeienced this problem? I think it must be the tires.

How much pressure is in the tires? On my 08 F350 the dealer kept filling them up to 80 psi (max on the tire) and the truck acted like I was driving on marbles. I would drop the pressure down to 50 psi front and 40 psi rear and the truck rode and handled better although the TPMS light would come on. I ended up turning that off using my H&S programmer.

I have the same problem. New 2013 F350 4 door, 20 wheels, 4X4. Just got back from a trip towing a 8Klb RV, the truck wanders all over the place. If the wind starts to blow, it's a white knuckle trip. Checked the tire pressure, it's 55 psi front and 75 psi rear. Has anybody found a fix?

Thanks,
PK

check tire pressure , alignment , tie rods , track bar , maybe also check the ear end as well , could be dog tailing down the road
