I went to 265/70r18 and at first I only lost 1-1.5 and hovered around 18 but after 1000 miles I'm lucky to get 16. I despised the stock tires but I'm very torn on running a highway tire during summer and making these winter wheels.
Is there any reason why a set of 5100s would fit a 2018 Silverado 1500 and not fit a 2014 Sierra 1500 with the same drive train and trim level? 4 Wheel Drive Parts is $297 shipped but it says it will fit one and not the other. Their site says the ones for the 2014 are $360.
Thanks for the followup, that's good info. I actually bought the severe gear a few weeks ago and haven't gotten around to changing it out yet. This weekend may prove to be the perfect opportunity.
I was under the impression that our factory gaskets were a quality piece and reusable, is this not the case? My experience is that rtv makes a mess for the next time and to only use it as a last resort.
I put brand new oem blades on my truck when I picked it up and I get chatter when the driver's side is going up and then it's fine on the way down. It doesn't happen all the time but it drives my OCD crazy.
While mine are new and I'm hesitant to judge a brand new tire on how they actually perform, they've been nothing short of amazing in the rain. We've had light rain, heavy rain, flooding, you name it. They grip well and don't hydroplane. I did autocross with my old car rain or shine so I feel I'm a bit for picky about grip than the average consumer and I was impressed with this regardless of their price range.
Druder replied to biggrizzly's topic in 2014 - 2018 Chevy Silverado & GMC SierraI've had situations with the stock Goodyears where I had plenty of time to pull out of a side street and the truck couldn't get out of its own way. Granted my truck had 57k when I finally replaced them but the consensus is they aren't even good new. Fast forward to now, I threw the Falkens mentioned above on and today it was pouring rain. I could self induce wheel spin but I had to try and they'd catch traction again with ease. Truck went through some massive puddles with zero hydroplaning. I had my heart set on Continental's new tire but I read some stellar reviews on the Wildpeaks and figured I would give them a try. I'm glad I did.
I'd love to see this installed, this is just about the only way I would add a sub to my truck. I have a full system just sitting in boxes because I don't want to tear my sierra apart and mess with it.
I know this thread is from last year but it was the most recent thread I found about these tires. What are people running for pressures in these? The tire place set them to 36psi as stated on the door sticker but upping them to 42 resulted in a bump in mileage.
