    2019 Silverado RST Crew Cab
  1. Hello, I was looking to get some help deciding on a size tire for my 2019 Silverado RST. I was looking to throw on a 1.5" leveling kit for the time being, and go to King coilovers with control arms at some point down the road. I know that with a level, I can't go too crazy for a size, so I was looking to pair a set of Method MR315's in either 17x8.5+0 or 17x9-12 with the following Toyo Open Country MT tires: I know that the 285/70R17 C rated tires would be the best riding, and fit no problem, I'm just worried they will wear fast because of only being 6 ply. But I like the looks of the 285/75 and 295/70. What I am trying to do is find a decent sacrifice of weight (I know they are the heaviest tires, I don't need to be reminded), comfort (relative), and size (I have the 5.3, 8 speed, 3.23 gears, I don't want it to be a dog or hunt for 8th gear on the highway). Anyone have any opinions? I know I don't really "need" the Toyo's, but man are they the best looking tire I have ever seen. I'm also considering the Falken Wildpeak AT3W in the following sizes:

    I haven't seen a ton of people running Method wheels. Tire Rack says the Method MR315 in a 17x9-12 will fit, but The "standard" 17x8.5+0 should clear the front correct? Anyone have pictures of Methods?
  3. Is it possible to add bed plug?

    I would love to have this be a GM accessory one day, I'd get it installed in a heartbeat!
  4. Oh yes I forgot that you can run that oil for 25k, pretty interesting I’ll have to read more into that. Thanks for the pricing though! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Thank you! I saw that on their website the other day so I’ll have to sign up, stuff is fairly expensive by the quart so every little bit helps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. For the people using the Amsoil signature and filter, what’s your average cost per oil change? I’m due for an oil change this winter and I was thinking of going that route. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Sure thing, I can take some close up pictures this weekend for you. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. The no drill ones are nice but in my opinion are too short, very similar to oem ones, which are probably fine but I feel like they don’t work as well as these. Stainless hardware was included with mine which is nice. If you’re really worried about the holes you could always put a little touch up paint or a rust preventative paint in them to be extra safe. Speaking of which I have some touch up paint lying around so maybe I should take my own advice before the snow falls again! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Yeah totally check out sharptruck.com and see if they sell the bracket by itself or give them a call I’m sure they’ll be able to send you just that. They seem like a really good, smaller business. They left a little hand written note in my box with the mud flaps, which is a nice touch and something you don’t see too often nowadays! Anytime I tell people about the gator backs I tell them to go to their website. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Yes these are the standard 12”x23” ones. I purchased them through Sharp Truck and they came with brackets to mount in the rear. Dealer installed mine when I was having some other work done. The front sits a little on the low side, which kind of annoyed me. Just measured them and the fronts are 4” off the ground and the rear are 7” off the ground. Not the end of the world, I’m going to level it next spring which will help bring them up a little bit. But the main reason I bought them was to keep slush off my running boards and they worked excellently! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Weather and sunlight play a large factor in what color it decides to be that day! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Gatorback mud flaps are a pricey alternative. I put them on to keep slush from flying onto my running boards from the front wheels. Never really paid attention to the rear but they keep my truck way cleaner in the winter time. They’re significantly longer than the oem plastic ones. These are the only pics I have right now.

  13. Weird reading on average MPG

    The average MPG reader on these trucks is way off compared to hand calculations. Just filled up my truck a few minutes ago (5.3, 4x4, 3:42s) dash said average of 20.7 mpg over the 409.3 miles on that tank. Hand calculated came out to be 18.56. But to answer your question, no this is nothing out of the ordinary, I watch my average go down all the time when I’m sitting in stop and go traffic. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    Perfect, thank you so much for your help! I’ll try this out soon. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk

    That sounds a lot cleaner, so you connected the power wire to the add-a-circuit and just grounded the other wire? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
