  1. How ironic, guess my tire decisions will be sooner rather than later. Got a flat this evening on the highway. On a side note, my Duratracs are at 6/32 and my spare is at 11/32. Should I put that spare on the front to help my rear diff or is it not enough of a size difference to bother? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

  3. Very well put. I’d say snow conditions 4-5 months out of the year. I went with a snowflake rated AT tire like the Duratrac for that reason. They’re serviceable in the winter but I’d have to think legitimate snow tire would be much better. I agree though, it’s more about how much I want to spend on a set of “nice wheels.” The voice in the back of my head just says save the money, put a set of quality year round tires on it and forget about it.

  4. This is how she sits today: This is maybe the style I’d be looking at for 20s. Or even the 20” OEM style snowflakes. Paired with something like a Toyo AT2. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. I keep going back and forth lately on having a summer and winter set of wheels. I currently have 17” OEM wheels and Duratracs on my Sierra. I’m going to have to replace the tires before winter. I was never blown away by Duratracs snow performance (I do like the looks though). I’m debating putting on a set of actual winter tires and just getting 20” wheel set for the summer. Or my other idea was to run BFG KO2s this time, year round, on my current wheels. What’re your folks’ opinions?
  6. It’s common, I’ve gone through two myself, drivers side only only my 2015. My neighbor was complaining about it the other day on his 2016. Maybe a dab of super glue might hold them on better.
  7. Dealer replaced radiator today, referenced bulletin P1513F. Also had them replace the oil cooler lines as they were seeping at the fittings. All covered under powertrain warranty. Thanks everyone for the help! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Update: Got back from an hour drive and it’s definitely wet with coolant in that top corner of the radiator. Now I get to go fight with with dealership to cover it under the powertrain warranty. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah, the cracked clip side looks ok. The other side is very dirty on the radiator face. I don’t see any visible moisture right now but I’m thinking it’s seeping through in that spot over time and collecting dirt. Just as pictured in that bulletin link I posted above.

  10. I did a little more reading and took another look under the hood this morning. One of the top radiator clips is cracked. One side of the top of the radiator looks very clean from what I can see, the other is brown and dirty. Not sure if this indicates a slow leak over there or not. I’m going to make an appointment this week. Seems like this could be the issue: https://static.nhtsa.gov/odi/tsbs/2016/MC-10138004-9999.pdf Cracked clip (clean side) Dirty side Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. No visible leaks or seeping from what I can see. Oil fill cap is clean as well. Coolant tank cap seems to seal fine. I’m not quite sure, pressure test will probably have to be next.
  12. I’ve got a 2015 Sierra with 62k miles. Been meticulously maintaining since day one, however over the past year or so I’ve been topping off the coolant tank maybe once every 6 months. 10-12oz at a time I’d say (almost an inch below “full cold” mark). Is this normal?
  13. These look great, I’m curious about the longevity of them. I put 3M clear PPF there, but the edges are starting to come up. Looking into a replacement.
  14. Not to highjack, but check out the Rigid SAE fog. Takes some retrofitting, but worth every penny.
  15. Thanks all, I’ll have to pull one and see if I can find a match. Honestly just replacing because they’re rusty. Could even just clean them up and use the same ones.
