  1. I’ll take pics when I get a chance to clean them up more. It’s been so damned hot here that I haven’t had the motivation to do it. It may just be stubborn brake dust. I’d hate to think that someone swapped my wheels for afternarket at a dealership.
  2. This is mine after a slightly spirited 30 minute drive and after idling for about 15-20 seconds in gear.
  3. I do live in Illinois and Illinois does like to salt. The truck did get run through the car wash when I could. But I set out to give er a good hand wash yesterday and started working on the wheels and was pretty surprised to find chrome flaking off in spots. As for the slight pitting, I’m not sure if some chrome polish and a Mother’s ball will do the job or not. I could understand if I had the truck for 2-3 years or if I had 50k+ miles(brake dust).
  4. Ok. I’ll at least find out. Appreciate the response!
  5. Bought my 2018 last August with 3,200 miles on it(loaner truck- titled new). It now has ~13,000 miles on it and my chrome wheels have some light pitting and chrome flaking off. Just curious because less than a year of ownership and only 10k put on by me and the wheels are already starting to look not good.
  6. Voltmeter dipping low is normal. GM thought it’d be cool to cause a panic doing this. It’s to prevent overcharging of the battery. As far as oil pressure, looks ok to me. I’ll drive mine and get back to you. Pretty sure mine’s in a similar spot.
  7. Rain-X makes a pretty good one, also Turtle Wax. If you wanna get real good stuff find some Bug Slide. It’s pricey, but damn does it work GOOD. Most motorcycle shops should have it.
  8. Those rat bastards. My last set had the lip. That’s a bummer.
  9. Anyone have the N-Fab Podium steps in stainless? Little pricey, but I like the way they look and I don’t really want black. Just curious if anyone has them and how they’re holding up.
  10. Not totally disputing you, but the tires I snagged from Discount Tire(apparently Cooper Discoverer ATP is specific to DT, at least that’s what I was told) had a small lip from the wheel to the tire. Unless they’ve changed recently. I can’t speak for any other sets of Cooper Discoverer tires. But I totally understand. I don’t wanna scratch my chrome wheels either.
  11. I do have an e-Assist. I left that part out. Oops.
  12. I’ll throw in a vote for Cooper Discoverer tires if you’re looking to stay stock size. I went through two sets on my 2008 Sierra. Lasted 40-50k and walked through anything I ever went through. I didn’t go find a 5 foot deep mud pit, but it went through 16” of snow no problem. Probably what will go on my ‘18 Silverado when I wear these stock Goodyear LS2 tires out.
  13. FWIW, the 8 speed is a good trans if you’re lucky to get one without any issues. I lucked out and got a good one as far as I can tell after 11k miles. Downside is less aftermarket support. Can’t even get a cold air intake for it. Had I known this, I would’ve gotten a Z71 with the 6 speed. But, that 8 speed always finds the powerband.
