  1. Commenting for my own record as I'm wanting to get something a bit more aggressive looking myself but something that performs well on the highway and in rain. Liking the looks of the Cooper AT3's and the Nitto Ridge Grappler Tires!
  2. You guys are all right. The sellers gets the wheels from a shop that does a lot of customizing for some local GM dealerships. He had a bunch of GMC and Chevy center caps. One or two wheels already had the Chevy caps the others he just popped out the GMC and put in the new Chevy centers. Sunday I was looking around the interwebs and came across this little device that costs less than $20 to my door. Was delivered today and now all my wheels are programmed into the truck. https://www.amazon.com/dp/product/B06XVR85N7
  3. I agree. If you need a special tool to take off your oil filter then you're putting it on way to tight. I rub a thin layer of new oil on the rubber seal then hand tighten nice and snug. A little muscle is all that's needed to remove it when it's time to change it again.
  4. Well the wheels and tires look brand new. A couple still had green stickers on the sidewall and the tires where had nubs all over them. I offered $1500 for everything but he said he couldn't do that, then he offered $1600 and I took them. I actually stuck around for a few minutes and he's got a good sized garage full of stock wheels and tires. He gets them from another place that does upgrades for dealers then turns around and sells them on craigslist. Went home and put them on. I'd still like to get a set of more aggressive looking tires but I'll wait until these tires need to be replaced. Now I just gotta take the truck in to the dealer to have the tire sensors re-learned.
  5. Thanks. The ad sounds like it's a business doing upgrades on stock trucks. Then when I put in the address in Google Maps it looks like just some dudes house out of town. Really? I can only find original 20" snowflake wheels for about $400 each new. That alone is $1600 for a set of four. So for $75 more I'm also getting the sensors, tires, lug nuts and center caps. Do you know of a better place to buy them?
  6. I'm looking at buying new 20" chevy wheels and came across this craigslist ad that seems like a really good deal for the wheels, center cap, lug nuts, tire sensors and tires. My concern is it's either a scam or maybe the wheels aren't what they seem? Is there anything I should look for if I go see them?
  7. I just tried to place an order with Adam's using the 10% off GMT coupon code but it says it's invalid. Do GM-Trucks.com members no longer get a discount?
  8. I keep my truck manual and related literature in there to keep the glove box clean and free for more handy stuff.
  9. I too have replaced my license plate bulbs with Philips LEDs - man those things are bright!
  10. What wheels and tires are those? They look great!
  11. Had Rhino lining and undercoat sprayed on the truck over this past weekend.
  12. Funny you say that, I was just thinking about that when I was taking pictures of my Husky liners... maybe that's why I haven't purchased the center hump cover. So I can be reminded that I actually do have carpet under there. haha Here are a couple pictures of my husky liners up front and in back.
  13. I went with x-act contour for both the front and back (full back) and they look and fit great. I'll try to post a picture tonight when I get home.
  14. I had WeatherTech liners in my 04 Sierra, because Husky wasn't avaialble, and the WeatherTech's are okay at best. My 04 didn't have the button to hook them in place and the bottom of the WT's are smooth and are made of a harder plastic - so they moved. In my 16 Silverado I went with Husky's and glad I did, not only does the Silverado have the button to keep them in place the Husky's also have small spikes on the bottom to prevent them from moving around and the flexible rubber is much nicer in my opinion. Husky gets my vote from now on.
