  1. Winter Tire Setups

    I’m in Ontario and I just bought a set of BF Goodrich KO2’s. Never drove them in the snow with my 2500 Duramax but I had them in a Jeep Cherokee and they worked as good as any “winter” tire I’ve tried in the past; Michelin X-Ice and Hankook I-Pike
  2. Parking light problem

    Turned out to be a loose wire in a connector at the parking lamp. Repair was covered under warranty.
  3. Tire load range rating

    The only thing I haul now is a 3000 lb fishing boat and ocassionally I may have the back loaded up with firewood. I drive conservatively and don’t corner hard. So from what you’re saying I should be ok.
  4. I have a brand new 2018 Silverado 2500 HD that has the factory Goodyear SR-A all season tires (load range E). I have the opportunity to buy a set of brand new BF Goodrich All Terrain KO2’s at a real good price. However they are a load range C tire. I don’t tow or carry any heavy loads often so would these load range C tires be OK to use on my truck ? Load range C tires (KO2’s) are rated for 2755lbs. Load tange E tires (KO2’s) are rated for 3195 lbs.

  6. How's My Deal?

    Good luck in keeping it clean !!
  7. New shoes

    Are you putting those tires on the stock wheels, or on a set of aftermarket wheels?
  8. I just bought a set of “PYQ” 17x7.5 wheels, including wheel covers and tire pressure sensors, for $300. My intentions are to use these wheels with a set of tires, yet to be determined, as a dedicated winter wheel/tire combo. My problem is I notice the wheel covers have plastic wheel but covers that look like they’re supposed to be threaded on to the actual wheel nuts. I didn’t get any wheel nuts with the wheels when I bought them so I need to buy 32 wheel nuts that will allow the plastic caps to thread on to them. Does anyone know a GM part number, have a picture of what the nuts I’m looking for actually look like, or possible have a e-Bay link.
  9. True Cost of Ownership

    I bought my 2018 Silverado 2500 LTZ diesel in August and I got $12,500 off as well as 0% financing over 72 months.
  10. Parking light problem

    I was thinking it may be a BCM glitch. I’m taking it back to the dealer since it’s under warranty.
  11. True Cost of Ownership

    What is TCO KBB ??
  12. Parking light problem

    I figure the harness is intact since the parking lights flash when the truck locks using the remote.
  13. AI have a 2018 Silverado 2500 HD diesel that has a problem with the passenger parking lamps (the amber lights outboard of the headlight). It doesn’t light up when the headlights are turned on but will flash when I unlock/lock using the remote key fob. What can be causing this? It’s not the bulbs since they flash when locked/unlocked.
  14. I used to own a 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 Elevation with the 5.3 with a BDS 6” lift, Rockstar Wheels and 35” Toyo tire’s. It was nice but I wanted something better. In August Chevy was offering some nice incentives and I took advantage of them and traded the 2017 for a brand new 2018 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD diesel crew cab with a 6’6” box. I have the LTZ with the LTZ Plus option along with pretty much every other option available. Z71 off road package, dual alternators, high idle switch, 5th wheel/gooseneck prep package, front and rear park assist, driver alert package, power folding tow mirrors, roof marker lights, sunroof, sliding rear window, Bose stereo, navigation and Deep Ocean Blue metallic paint. So far I’ve put about 1300 miles on it. It went into regen mode once. I absolutely love driving this a lot more than my old truck. A couple of things I like about the 2018 over the 2017 1500 is the bigger fuel tank and GM has fixed the annoying backup camera. At night the screen was so bright on the 2017 it would blind me. The 2018 is now dimmed down to the correct brightness level. One question to finish this post. When I went looking for my truck I only wanted one in either Bright Red or Deep Ocean Blue. At all the dealers I went to all the trucks were either black or white. Why are the majority of trucks black or white ?? The dealer that I bought my truck from found it at another dealer over 700 miles away....
  15. 2014 GMC Sierra Z71 Partout
