  1. Correct, more tire gives more cushion but then you’ll have more bounce which is where the quality of you suspension comes in and with shocks like CST, KING and a couple others, you’ll be set Sent from above
  2. The 19’s GM’s don’t have computer assisted suspension without it being a Denali. I just turned in my 19 loaner SLT 2WD CC while my Lifted 18 was being serviced and couldn’t wait to get back into my Lifted truck. The truck doesn’t need 18” of rubber? No, it’s personal preference, you can drive with any size you want but you’ll never see an off-road race truck with 20” wheels cause more rubber means more cushion. If I put 22” wheels on my Lifted truck it would ride like crap, I’ve got 20” wheels and wish I had 18” instead. I could go on and on but Again, you don’t compare a German sedan with ride sensitive suspension to a pickup truck built to haul and tow, twist and turn on dips etc etc. Sent from above

    Pretty truck, how much you pay per quart for the Mobil1 oil? Sent from above
  4. Ummm, this is a truck forum, why are you comparing the ride quality of a 4door German built sedan to a Pickup truck? Trucks and sedans ride completely different, my teenage daughters new 19 X5 with 20” wheels rides much smoother than your 5series but that’s cause computer assisted ride, aside of the Denali and especially the Raptor, trucks don’t have that. Golden rule in trucks, the more meat the smoother the ride but less air pressure. Sent from above

  8. What kind of oil

    What I’d like to know is which is the best oil filter? I’ve switched from Mobil1 that captures as small as 30 microns to Napa Platinum that captures as small as 20 microns. Sent from above

  10. What kind of oil

    This is what I’ve been talking about all along, Mobil1’s best oil not even being 100% Synthetic is almost $3 more per quart than the Amsoil 100% Signature Series. At 3k miles Mobil1 Full Synthetic breaks down and turns black where it takes literally twice as long for Amsoil to “VISIBLY“ show darker discoloration which obviously proves the point, longer intervals saves money at the same time best protection available for our engines. A buddy of mine that spends enormous amounts on his race cars told me that 100% Synthetic takes much longer to break down than the Full Synthetic oils. I’m completely sold and especially since I’ve actually noticed a much smoother running engine since I’ve switched to Amsoil Signature Series. Here’s a pick of today’s Auto Supply store, Amsoil at $10 per quart versus Mobil1’ best, it’s a no brainer! Sent from above
  11. What kind of oil

    Hopefully no arguing comes out of it but all in all everyone is going to do what ever they want to anyway and arguing will only boost an insecurity factor of ones intelligence. I just showed my 2cents and leave it at that except I’m going on a 5-6k mile change the next time lol Sent from above
  12. What kind of oil

    Personally, I believe changing your motor oil at what’s considered as safe intervals is the way to go, unfortunately, our DI motors help escalate the breakdown of the engine oil and with extra soot but I believe changing motor oil earliest at 5K Miles while using a real 100% synthetic motor oil helps the longevity of the motor oil helping to save in the long run. Last I checked, a quart of Mobil1 0w20 Annual protection was the same price as Amsoil Signature Series (members price) which it’s a no brainer there. Sent from above
  13. What kind of oil

    Darker the oil the quicker break down and more soot accumulated from the oil. Apparently, it gets especially bad in DI motors Sent from above
  14. Due to the square wheel wells, max in a stock 14-18 stock truck will be 275/60/20 without issues. Leveling will cause anything to rub, I know from personal experience. Sent from above
  15. What kind of oil

    I’m adding information to the OP’s question, Grumpy you should start your questions as to why change engine oil on your own Topic but for right now I’m answering the OP’s question in order to help decision on choosing the right oil that does not break down as quickly as other well known over the counter oils. We all know you love to over analyze everything you put your interest in but OP started a topic “What kind of oil to use?” Sent from above
  16. What kind of oil

    Ok, just did a 4K mile oil change, Mobil1 0W20 Annual Full Synthetic is always black when I change it at 4K miles, this is Amsoil 0W20 Signature Series at 4K miles, looks like it’s only got 2K miles on it, proof is in the oil change, EXTREMELY IMPRESSIVE! Looks like I’m getting a bit low Sent from above
  17. The 33” if wider will add rolling resistance, swap them out for skinnier tires and you’ll definitely get a plus on your mpg’s. Your level won’t make that much of a difference. Sent from above
  18. ProComp would be 4WHEELPARTS. I don’t get it, why buy a Denali and put crap suspension on it! You should look at getting a CST 4.5” Suspension lift, superior quality and will add value to your truck at time of sale especially selling to someone that’s knowledgeable on Lifts. ProComp is ok, crap shocks and coil overs. If I was you I’d put it all back to stock, sell it, save up and buy a CST Lift https://www.newlevelmotorsports.com/cskc3191.html YOU’LL LOVE IT! Doesn’t widen your track width, keeps your stock wheels and tires up to 35”, superior heavy duty reinforced lift second to none. Sent from above
  19. If it’s the 18 5.3 then you should be able to use the one designed for it. There’s also exhaust systems ready for the new body style and engines as well, call BORLA and chat with them about it, they’ve got great products and customer service too. Sent from above
  20. What kind of oil

    Get the best you can afford, change it every 4-5K and you’ll be fine. I highly recommend using Amsoil Signature Series but there are others that do come close but won’t really matter so much if you’re changing it out before 5K. I’ve personally noticed a difference with Amsoil being Real 100% Synthetic and not the misleading Full Synthetic, difference being zero oil consumption and much smoother running engine BUT I haven’t tested all the top oils, I’m very happy with my swap to Amsoil. Research Amsoil yourself and you’ll see why it’s highest rated motor oil. A quart of Mobile1 is a couple dollars cheaper than Amsoil Signature Series but you’re getting much better Insurance pay a few bucks more. 100% synthetic burns much slower than Full Synthetic and performs much better past 4-5K miles than Full Synthetic. Good luck and congrats on your new to you truck! Sent from above
  21. That’s a good question but one that will draw out criticism from some of the forum trolls. To be honest, when considering an exhaust I’ve never thought about mpg’s just the sound quality and only if it would add HP. GM has a cat back system they claim adds at least 10HP more, give it a look and being that you’ve got a new 19 I’d definitely ask your dealership these same questions and save yourself some time by communicating with other 19 model owners with that same experience you’re asking for. Good luck! Sent from above
  22. Correct, best of all you go to the dealership and complain about something about that transmission clunking, slipping issue or camera quality getting worse and you’ll get a “cannot find or duplicate an issue” or “found to work to GM specs” sound like to me GM has definitely lowered their standards putting profit over reliability. When an automobile manufacturer bailed out by the very customers it sells to knows they have issues in its manufacturing and yet purposely pushes out the product for sale, to me that’s disgusting and criminal offense and the added millions of dollars that consumers are having to spend in order to keep their product running is enough for me to BAD MOUTH anyone doing so. Guess this is why my wife and kids are driving brand new Beemers lol Sent from above
  23. Devote my life in this forum?? And yet you’re trolling the forum....Don’t go hurting yourself there Honda, shouldn’t go attacking people for giving their personal experience on a GM product especially since Ive owned a great number of them and highly doubt you’ve ever spent enough on one like I have to make an educated enough guess to realize that the enormous class action law suit on GM is there for a reason and yet still pumping out same transmissions. My 18 6.2 is in the shop this very moment having preventative flushing and fluid changes done so I can keep it especially after pouring large amounts into personalizing it, so not done with GM yet but when I sure as hell will not not ever be getting a Dodge but when I’ve had enough I’ll post it then I’ll leave you with your mess on wheels. I’ll start shopping for my loaded out Raptor when I find that I’m starting to have issues with my GM truck that just cannot be fixed. Sent from above

  25. Currently, in an attempt to make sure I don’t have any of the transmission issues I’ve been hearing so much about, my 2018 GMC SLT CC Z71 6.2 is having a preventative transmission flush so I’m in a 2019 somewhat loaded out 2wd Texas Edition with leather, cooled seats, a 5.3 etc etc and I can immediately tell you with that I’m NOT at all impressed with it, very generic interior and after running errands in it with my wife she even noticed the horrible ride quality when compared to my CST Lifted truck with coil overs, I was thinking I’d be enjoying the smoothness of a new stock 2wd truck, NOPE! Only thing I enjoyed was the HD backup camera, the rest was very cheap looking, generic and for those that think the new 5.3 is faster....you’re very very wrong, all in all this 19 has me calling throughout the day asking “is my truck done yet?” This 19 is a POS and drives horrible, bounces, you feel everything on the road and mostly feels like your driving a boat Sent from above
