  1. Here you go. Not sure if this is what you are looking to see or not. It’s dark out so I had to use a light. Looks as if it’s just the outer edge of the inner lugs that are thinning out. More so on this one particular tire. I’m thinking it’ll be OK for at least a little while. Now that I’m aligned I’ll just keep doing my usual 5k mile rotations when I get my oil changed, keep an eye on it and I’ll buy new tires when it’s time. Whenever that may be. May be sooner rather than later! This photo really shows how the edge of the lugs wore down.
  2. As long as it slows the rate of the tire wear. Wasn’t really looking forward to replacing tires at the moment with only 17k miles on them.
  3. Kind of my thinking too. Go get it checked out and if it’s all good then we’ll know it’s the coopers. Like going to the doctor to get a checkup when something doesn’t feel right.
  4. They are the Cooper Discoverer AT3 4S. Good eye! I assumed there would be a little smoothing at the edges of the tread since it’s a pretty squared tire and not really rounded at the edges of the tread. If that makes any sense. Not sure of the correct tire terminology. I’m just a bit surprised at how much it’s worn down if that is in fact what’s going on here.
  5. Thanks, I thought of that too. I pretty religiously check them weekly and they are consistently about 35-36psi when cold.
  6. I’m guessing this would be a camber issue. I just had my tires rotated just as I always do every 5k miles and now noticed some inside wear on the rears. The rears were in front the past 5k miles. Is this a camber issue? The rest of the tires look OK. I’m thinking it’s time to have the alignment checked.
  7. I do remove a few times a year to clean and vacuum, but I have never thought to check for dampness. Good tip, thank you!
  8. Hmmmmm... not really dog crap, but an old gym sock for sure. Not sure which is worse! Yikes! And yes, the filter seemed to of gotten rid of the odor after driving the truck for a couple days after replacing.
  9. I was going to see how the new air filter worked before I went in and did anything more drastic. I haven’t noticed the smell at all since the new filter was dropped in so hopefully that was it. I only really noticed it after leaving my truck at the airport for a week while we were on vacation. Not sure if that has anything to do with anything. We got back from the trip and started the truck and it smelled a little like vinegar or maybe an old stanky sock for most of the 20 minute ride home. I’ve got teenagers so that was the first thing I looked for! It slowly got better and better through the week lasting about 5 minutes for a few days and then only a few seconds after starting the truck. Figured I’d work with the easiest solution and go from there. I’ve got an oil change coming up so I figured I’d mention it to them when I brought it in if the new filter doesn’t seem to be working. Which it does for now at least.
  10. Didn't notice this topic till now. I replaced mine yesterday after getting a funky smell for a few minutes after starting the truck each time. My filter was pretty dirty. Smell is gone after replacing with a K&N Cabin Filter. I'm confident the smell would also be gone with the OEM paper filter, but I was feeling saucy and felt like spending more money apparently.
  11. Lately I've noticed I've been getting a strange smell from the vents after starting the truck that would dissipate after about 5 minutes. I figured I would start with the Cabin Air Filter since I don't recall ever changing or checking it. My truck is almost at 25,000 miles so its probably about time. Anyway, it was pretty dirty, so I went to pick up another one and actually ended up with a K&N cabin filter just to try it out. I have ZERO interest in using a K&N air filter for the engine and I'm perfectly happy with the OEM ACDelco paper filter. I just thought I would give it a try in the cabin since you don't need to oil it and its washable. There is a kit to "refresh" it when the time comes to give it a cleaning so we'll see what happens at that point. The good news is the smell is gone after starting the truck. Curious if anyone else uses one of these for their Cabin filter? Or am I the test dummy?
  12. Sorry, I don’t remember the time estimate that it said. But I do remember it finishing faster, so the estimate was definitely longer than the 20 minutes or so it actually took over complete.
  13. I updated to the 2019 maps last year. My 2018 Sierra was still showing old speed limits that were changed back in 2015. All good now. The update was pretty simple and straight forward. Took about 20 minutes to upload everything.
  14. Thanks for the tip on the grease! I will take a look at that solution and see if that fixes it.
