  1. Sticker price claims that GM installed All-Terrian tires? NOT!

    So, where do I go with my complaint, that will actually make a difference? I tried raising hell @ the dealership, they could’ve cared less. Don’t get me wrong, I love my Silverado. But, at least as far as I am concerned a truck, just isn’t as much of a truck, when it’s limited to the highway! If i try taking my new truck off road with the current Wrangler SR-A’s, I will get 1 thing, STUCK! It don’t matter what you drive, if it’s a Lincoln Mark V, if it has BF Goodrich All Terrian tire on it, it’s going through my than truck, ever will! I want a truck, that when people see it, they know it’s work horse! Not only that, it isn’t uncommon for me to get a call or text on many given weekend, to go pull a friend out of a muddy trial. If that happens anytime soon, the best I got is offering a push maybe? Lol!
  2. Hello, I am new here, 1st time posting also. So, if I’m posting in the wrong place or anything, let me know please. So, that I won’t do it again. Let me start by saying that I just bought my 1st NEW Silverado in early October, and thus far, I love it!!! BUT!!! I do have to vent my disappointment at GM for 1 of the details on my sticker price of the truck. The truck itself, doesn’t have a ton of options. So, when I’m looking at the sticker & see a optional $300.00 UPcharge for all Terrain tires, my immediate thought (as I stepped back to check the tires) is WRONG!! I have quite the interest in tire/wheel combinations, ESPECIALLY on brand new trucks. My truck is a beautiful Rally edition, all blacked out. Has the 20” inch wheels with Wrangler SR-A tires. Anyone that’s reading this, has some knowledge of tires. Hell, just about every guy “Truck Guy” knows exactly what constitutes a All-Terrain tire on our trucks. But, what ticks me off the most, is the fact that #1) GM even put those tires on my truck! (P275/75/20) they belong on a station wagon! #2) There is SOMEONE, that is responsible for deciding what tires go where, & why. Who thought it was a good decision to charge EXTRA $$ for these “so called” All-Terrain tires, obviously is “NOT A TRUCK GUY” I did notice this extra charge, before I took delivery of my new truck. I brought it to my salesman attention, & his 1st response was “Well, someone messed up, because those aren’t All Terrain tires at all” I wish now, I would’ve recorded him saying that, because as time went on, he changed his opinion of those tires pretty quickly. Actually, I believe it was right after I signed all the loan papers! That he started trying to convince me, that they REALLY ARE All-Terrain tires. Ummm.. No, they are NOT! They never will be, EVER! In case anyone reading this doesn’t already know, when your reading the actual tire size, every single letter, & or number, has some meaning behind it. The tire company’s do this for a reason! The letter “P” in the prefix of my tire size, stands for “Passenger Car” also some tires start with “LT” that means “Light Truck” it’s really not hard to understand. All the numbers & letters are reflected as to the actual size of the tire. Every tire has a speed rating on also, some of them are included in the tire size. The whole reason for this post to see if I am way off base with my Complaint? Am I the only one, that kinda feels like we got the shaft here? I mean seriously, I’m willing to buy a $50,000.00, truck, & for that in exchange I just ask to have a voice in what equipment goes on it. If it comes to it, I’d just be happy if in the future, they don’t put that on the sticker! Don’t claim to put a upgrade charge, without a upgraded (aggressive) tire! I don’t mean to be bashing Good Year in anyway. They make a excellent product. But, I bet if you was to ask any Good Year tech., as to whether or not this is a All Terrian tire? They would agree with me! What do you think? Is this a petty issue, that I’ve brought up? All feedback is welcome, good or bad! I’m a big boy, if you don’t like my post..say so. You won’t hurt my feelings! Sincerely, Steve
