Imcrazy started following Time for new tires.......what brand? Going up a size...., What’s my truck worth?, Will GM ever get rid of the G80? and and 6 others
Trade in value plus a few bucks? If you leave it modded it will limit buyers, I wouldn't buy a modded truck might not even buy one that didn't have OEM wheels, not a fan of most aftermarket wheels as most look cheap to me compared to factory. Not apples to apples but, I'd think the most I'd get for my stock 2016 with 88k miles is maybe $20k...
Have the Low Pro om my 2016, it leaks a bit by the tailgate... Last cover was an on top of the rails tri fold, it was a bit more water resistant but, the beds on these newer trucks just seem to leak... Had a Undercover Flex 5 or 6 years ago and that thing leaked like crazy...BAK products suck... Whatever you buy, try to get it from a local truck accessories shop as they will support you better than some website..
I put 275/65/18's on my truck for $210 each installed + tax.. I didn't catch your tire size, I'm guessing 17" rims? Try your local shops, I paid about $50 less going to my Dad's regular mechanic guy and I avoided the crappy service the discount tire dealers all offer in my area.. I needed a tire leak fixed and they couldn't see me for over a week and it took 20 minutes just to get a live person on the phone... I don't have time for service like that.. Obviously your local discount tire maybe better...
Doesn't work that way.. If you have the knob on the dash, you can't convert to the shift on the floor.. LS & WT trucks have manual shift on the floor, LT and up have the electronic knob on the dash...
Will try to remember to shoot you an update. Check out tire rack , they did a full battery of tests on 4 tires, the Continentals the OP has, the Coopers I have, Bridgestone Revo's and one more I can't recall.. It helped me a lot with my decision...
So far, so good... Only been about a week so far, no snow usage to report but, good in the rain & dry also quiet... Last two sets I had were Discoverer ATP's (discount tire exclusive) only got about 40k miles outta those and they were down to 4/32...
All 2014 + 1/2 ton trucks are Ecotec... If you have a black gas cap it's not flex fuel, if you have a yellow cap it's flex fuel.. There is a list of RPO codes in your upper glove box I believe that will tell you what features the truck has...
I just put on a set of Cooper AT3 4S tires in 275/65/18 on my Silverado.. Tirerack has a good video on the AT3 4S but, nothing on the LT... The LT is a different rubber compound I believe... Do you have a 1500 or 2500?
Nice looking tires! I was seriously considering these but, I wound up going with Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S... If I didn't drive in snow I would have probably gone with the Continentals too but, I wanted something severe snow rated.. Will be curious to hear your reports on snow, tire racks review said that they were sufficient but, not great in the white stuff.
If you know your exact destination sometimes talking to Waze or Google maps works but, not when you need to add multiple destinations or aren't exactly sure how the business you're looking for is entered in the system... I use apple music and it doesn't have very good functionality through the in truck interface.. Often I pull over but, don't put the truck in park to enter info and it's much quicker for me to type.. With what I do for a living I might enter 10 destinations a day so it's kind of a different than average application..
I prefer the magnetic mount I have, it sits right next to the touch screen.. https://www.amazon.com/Magnetic-WizGear-Universal-Swift-snap-Technology/dp/B0773F8S74/ref=sr_1_5?crid=QO99VR2QG0N1&keywords=cell+phone+holder+for+car+magnetic&qid=1574604274&sprefix=cell+phone+holder+for+car+mag%2Caps%2C152&sr=8-5 You can't do 'everything' from the dash.. Try entering a GPS destination while driving, locks you outta the keyboard, try looking more than a few albums back in your music app... Also you can't see the list of turn by turn directions on Waze or Google maps without looking at the hand set... I drive a lot and use GPS a ton, gotta have my phone in conjunction with the touch screen in the truck to work efficiently...
I picked up a set of Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S yesterday in 275/65/18. Last set was Cooper Discoverer ATP's (discount tire exclusive) those only made it 40k miles or so and they were worn down to 5/32 and with the snow coming soon in NE Ohio I couldn't take the chance of running them through the winter, I'm a traveling sales rep and I never know what I might get stuck in... The ATP's were an OK tire, got me through some bad snow storms but, they wore out quickly IMO and became very loud after about 25k miles / 10 months of driving on them... The new AT3's are quieter and offer a softer ride across bumps... Steering is a bit numb/light but, I haven't even put 50 miles on 'em yet so too early to say if that will change and quite frankly if it''s a + or a - for the tires... These are rated for 65k miles so time will tell how they hold up, hoping to get 50-60k out of them before they're down to 4/32...
