  1. Michelin pro-rated the tires and credited $500 towards a new set. I replaced the 265/65/18 with 275/65/18 Cooper Discoverer ATP tires
  2. The trailer is in storage right now so I don't have any photos of it. When hitched up the truck is sitting level and the equalizer bars are parallel with the frame of the trailer
  3. I recently bought a 2017 31ft travel trailer that weighs 6900lbs and has a tongue weight of approx. 640 pounds. I am using a 1000lb weight distribution setup and the truck is sitting level. The only issue is the front of the truck feels light. Any solutions other than a bigger truck?. The truck a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 with the MAX tow package 5.3, 6 speed and 3.73 gears
  4. I have a 2018 Sierra 1500 with 3300 miles that has the factory Michelin Energy Saver tires. Most of the freeway in my area has a grooved surface which causes the truck to shift side to side. It almost feels like hydroplaning but on dry pavement. I have had the truck to the dealership and even had a tech ride shotgun and he felt it as well. They couldn't find anything wrong on the truck and said it's just the tread design on the tires and once they wear down some it will go away. That was 1500 miles ago and it's worse now. I've run the truck at the recommended tire pressure on the door jamb and also tried a higher pressure. Any chance this would be covered under a GM/Michelin warranty?.
  5. My new 2018 Sierra 1500 SLE with the MAX Tow package came equipped with the Michelin Energy Saver tires and was wondering are these the correct tires?. Everything I have seen online for these tires they are on passenger cars
  6. I was having an engine noise issue which the dealership said they repaired under warranty but said it was "common". With all the rebates available I was able to buy a 2018 GMC Sierra 1500 SLE MAX Tow crew cab with the 6.5ft bed and 5.3 V8 for $11,000 under MSRP. It had the options I was looking for and color
  7. I currently have a 2016 F-250 Powerstroke diesel but for how I drive it's not the right truck. Most of my driving is in town stop and go and the most I tow is around 3000-4000lbs on occasion. My wife's 2007 Yukon 5.3 has been pretty much flawless even with 165k miles on it so I am switching to GM. I have narrowed it down to a 2017 Silverado 1500 5.3 with the MAX Towing package or a 2016 Silverado 2500HD with the 6.0. Both have the standard 6.5ft beds, 4x4, crew cab. Which one would be more suited for my needs?. The wife would like to eventually get a 26-29ft travel trailer
