  1. When I drove my used 14 Silverado off the lot I entered the on ramp to the highway with my foot to the floor. As I reached the apex of the slight hill that was the on ramp my truck hesitated and felt like it died for a second (at 60) then it started accelerating again. After a little while and a few pedal to the medal starts from a stop I realized it was the tires breaking loose and the traction control kicking in. I came from a 2006 Sierra 4.8 v8 to the 355hp 2014 Silverado 5.3. It was a major power upgrade for me and my “hesitation problem” was the product of my more powerful truck breaking traction. I hope your problem is as simple as this. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. It’s a half ton. They wouldn’t sell a bazillion of them if the average pavement pounding owner couldn’t get into it on the sales lot. Also, off the lot the Chevy is a more stable vehicle with a lower center of gravity. That is almost a direct quote from my father in law who was an engineer for gm for 15+. This isn’t an oversight it is an engineered design. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  4. best AT tires for winter?

    I got over 50k miles, when I traded my old Sierra in, on my P rated cooper discoverer at3s. Central Texas winters and lots of rain. They did well in the rain can’t speak on snow or to much ice. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  6. best AT tires for winter?

    I asked a guy, at the tire/rim booth, about some amp tires at the car show a few years ago. I asked him about the expected treadlife and he kinda scoffed at the idea of me worrying about how many miles the tires might get. He said there is no treadlife warranty and if he had to guess he thought maybe 25,000 miles. I do NOT have any experience with these tires and I don’t know anyone who has them.

    I drive a half ton so I was not familiar when the body styles of the hd changed. One of those times were I should of kept my mouth shut. I saw a couple of aftermarket rear bumpers with the corner step I liked on your body style, last night online. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    I don’t think your truck is a 2014. 2013 probably unless there were some 2014s built with the old body style. Otherwise Welcome Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Haven’t done any winter driving but I have put over 20k on my falken wildpeaks and they are still looking beefy Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Those wildpeaks are looking good. I am closing in on 22,000 miles on mine. Still look good and ride great. I have the 275/65r18s. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. I honestly don’t think it sounds like my 2014. I do have the direct injection tick like noise but I don’t think it sounds like that, not even close. I will have to stick my head in the wheel well and take a listen to be more certain. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. I think it would have looked better upside down. But hey not my truck Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
