  1. What lugs to get?

    Look at the taper angle at the bottom of the lug hole. If the match, you should be fine. If not, you may need to contact the wheel manufacturer and ask what they recommend.
  2. What lugs to get?

    It wouldn't surprise me if your stock out nuts worked just fine with those wheels.
  3. The reviews I read seemed to indicate a possible issue with 17+ Silverado/Sierra. The SUVs seems Ok. No idea why. Maybe it was coincidental and those were just defective or improperly used.
  4. I was about to ask the same. I saw a few on Amazon, but none of the "affordable" ones have great or even consistent reviews when it come to working with an 18 Silverado. If anyone has one that is proven to work on an 18, please speak up.
  5. I have 2 teenagers at home. I use the routine and larger maintenance as a teaching tool for them. Plus I just like doing it. I'll do just about everything myself except anything covered by warranty. I'm gathering parts now to change the steering gear on my 2000 Sierra. I will take it in for alignment once I'm done. I don't have those tools. I just don't want my kids to be totally ignorant when it comes to how their vehicles work. Ignorant people get taken advantage of.
  6. Damn! What a mess. I'd be demanding a LIFETIME warranty on that repair. In writing!!!!
  7. I had a Bakflip MX4 on my 15. I'd probably already have on in the 18 if it hadn't already had the soft folding cover. I will most likely get another MX4, but I'm not in as much of a hurry since I already have cover, however crappy it is.
  8. Good tires for 18 Duramax for towing

    Well if GM put the E load rated Michelins LTX Defenders on it factory, you're going to have one hell of a time doing any better. Does he air up properly for the load when he tows?
  9. From my experience, you need a hard tri/quad fold, a hard roll up, or a hard 1 piece if you don't want to see any movement. I have a GM accessory soft tri-fold. Came with the truck new. I'm not a fan. I will be replacing it with a hard folding cover. The flapping drives me nuts too.
  10. +1 Amsoil 75w-90 front and rear.

    Agreed about California. Way too many people. Plus, they don't call it the land of the fruits and nuts for no reason. That's definitely not for me.

    She's from upstate NY, so she knows trees. Unfortunately, we are both very entrenched in our jobs here in Denver. So even if we move, it will still be in commuting distance to downtown. Otherwise, I'd be pushing for somewhere in Texas, maybe the Austin area or the hill country? Maybe when we retire.

    I had an inch on my hood this morning. I live NE of Denver. It's still snowing here at my office downtown. The wife wants to move west. She wants more trees. It's beautiful, but more snow is keeping me from jumping on the bandwagon.
  14. Yep, the old Cheez Whiz dispenser! I have that permatex one at home.
  15. I don't recommend using it on the CV boots. It will cause them to collect dirt and debris which may accelerate wear. It's probably best to just keep them clean.
