    A newly filed lawsuit in Wisconsin says that GM knew it had a problem with cracking dashboards. ABC News has reported that the suit alleges GM tried to find a cause other than its manufacturing and materials to blame the problem on. GM is also not covering the repairs of trucks out of warranty since this is not a safety hazard. However, there are reports that GM dealerships are offering to pay half of the cost of repairs. We do not have that from GM directly.

    The two coolest cars form the Detroit Auto Show may well be the Buick Avista Concept and the 2017 Lexus LC 500. If the Avista becomes a production car, it will go head to head with the new Lexus luxury performance coupe. We'd like to know which would be your choice and why.

    Chevrolet and GMC passed along a few photos from the State Fair of Texas this morning. The two brands are currently showing off updates and enhancements for the 2016 lineup.
    Why the State Fair of Texas? Well, the longhorn state brings in the biggest share of truck sales out of ANY state. Truck buyer and Texan go hand in hand.
    Thanks to our friends, General Motors Photographers Steve Fecht and Mike Stone, for sending these photos our way.

That Custom HD Z71 though... :drool::drool:

 

Clearly running the AVF 18" wheel but what size tire is that Duratrac? Stock tires are 265/70/18...Unless Goodyear has yet to announce a new tire size...

That HD is absolutely awesome, can't say the same about the half ton though. I'm not sure what to think of the new front end yet. Have to see them in person I guess.

Yeah that Midnight HD is super sweet. That's about the only new GM truck that I'd leave alone if I bought one, haha. It might be running a 275/70/18 tire...

Found it in the order guide...new size for Goodyear:

 

Tires, LT265/70R18E AT aggressive tire tread, black wall, Goodyear Wrangler DuraTrac. Aggressive tread may result in a higher level of noise while driving. Routine tire rotations are strongly recommended.

1 - Included and only available with (PDY) Midnight Edition. Aggressive tread may result in a higher level of noise while driving. Routine tire rotations are strongly recommended. Note: Spare tire is (QWF) LT265/70R18E all-season, blackwall tire with (PYT) 18" painted steel wheel.

Thanks for the information! Dang it. I hoped they were bigger than that, haha. A big truck needs a big tire! At least they'll look better than the other factory options I guess...

With the massive list of options from GM and from dealers via GM parts, it's hard to call that "custom"
