Read this guys. SRT8s are safe and greate track cars, but what would make a standard Grand Cherokee be so unsafe ?!

Is this a swaybar issue ?

Invalid testing sounds right to me.  "Couldn't replicate the inside tires lifting while Chrysler and Fiat reps were in attendence" seems interesting.  Not sure I understand what, tires pry'd off the rims means???  I've never seen a tire pull off the rim because of a sharp turn ... never mind 7 or whatever they're trying to say.  Anyone else have their tires fall off the rims if the airpressure was correct while driving on the pavement???

Sounds like BS to me ...

Tires pried off the rims sounds like tire bead being unseated leading to a flat tire. Conditions would have to be pretty extreme to cause that but it is possible, especially if the tires are underinflated (on purpose???).
