  1. Well done. That looks perfect to me. GM has a lot of great stock wheels, and I think 3.5-4" of lift looks perfect.
  2. 285 or 275??

    I'd say that's a win-win.
  3. 285 or 275??

    For two tire sizes that are visually very similar, I'd buy the cheaper ones, to save the $140. Looks wise, I prefer the taller tire, but we are talking about a less than 2% difference in diameter here.
  4. 285 or 275??

    If it were that simple, for a given diameter and width, a tire for a 17" wheel would be more expensive than a tire for a 22" wheel. That's not at all the case though. Also, sometimes changing a size bumps you into a different load index, which can change pricing. I'm sure there's more factors as well. I suspect these two sizes are probably within about $15 per tire of each other, but if it's more than that, I'd say it's something to consider.

    Is there a price difference?
  6. Not sure if compatibility is any different for the ZR2, but Nitro offers 4.56 gears for the Colorado. It’s a big change from stock. http://www.nitro-gear.com/GM-Gear-Package-p/gpcolorado-4.56.htm Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. My valve has been very reliable on my Canyon for the last 5 years. The valve with a hose attachment saves me having to remove a skid plate. It does drain pretty slow, but I just open it up, then go do something else for a bit.
  8. I remember when the ecoboost first came out, Ford released a lot of promotional footage of their torture testing. In one segment, they basically had the truck towing a large trailer, floored, doing laps on a Nascar track. They did not hide that turbos were glowing red, but they wanted me to believe that it can handle it.
  9. Tire size?

    Most of the popular agressive tires stop at 20" wheels. You can get 305/45R22 (32.8") Pirelli Scorpion ATR, Hankook Dynapro ATM, or Atturo Trail Blade XT. There may be other options too, but I'm not sure.

    I'm not a luxury truck buyer. I bought a "base" Sierra. Being a GM fan, I really did see the Denali trucks as quite the status symbol. I believe there was a time when they were the most luxurious pickup truck on the market. But lately, I've been reading so much about how the competition is doing a better job. Maybe the reviews are right. I think maybe where the competition has gone wrong though is branding and marketing. "Limited" is not a term distinct to the luxury truck market like "Denali" is. (Ok, I'm choosing to ignore the Terrain and Acadia Denali.) "Denali" says you've arrived, in a big (probably black), powerful, and luxurious truck. "Limited" could mean you've added a lot of options to your Hyundai Elantra. Yes, Limited is a trim level available on a Hyundai Elantra.

    About half the manual contains good information, the other half is safety warnings. lol
  14. Between the two, I would vote for the hostage for sure, for the reasons you mentioned. Gloss finish, and nice lip.
