  1. OK, after doing some more research online, I've found out that the 60 PSI rating stamped on the wheel is for the tire tech. It's the pressure you should not exceed to set the bead on the rim. It's not related to how much pressure the wheel can withstand.
  2. I just picked up a 2006 Silverado 3500 today. It has the small overhead console with map lights and storage pocket. I used to have a 2000 GMC Sierra that had the longer overhead console with more storage in it. Has anyone ever replaced the smaller overhead with the longer one? I was just wondering if it was a plug and play deal or if you had to buy another bracket or two to make it work. Thanks in advance.
  3. Yeah, I'll pull them after I get it and check them out. I was just a bit surprised to see that 60 PSI stamped on the wheels. I'm also surprised that the installer would mount load range E tires on them. I guess I'll start looking for some OEM steelies
  4. Hello. New member here. I'll be picking up my new-to-me 2006 Silverado CC 3500 DRW Wednesday. It's a one-owner with 97,000 miles on it. It's an LLY (from what I've been reading, the same engine as the LBZ from that year with a slightly different tune). I'm really looking forward to it. Anyway, I noticed something odd. It has a few aftermarket parts on it, one of which is the wheels. They're aluminum. I was looking at the front wheels and noticed that they're stamped 60 PSI. It has 80 PSI max Firestone tires on it. Since I'll be towing with it (I don't know what the previous owner used it for), should I consider swapping out these wheels for the stock steel ones? I'm a little concerned that the wheels are marked 60 PSI while the tires on them are 80 and, for towing, I'll likely be running closer to the max tire inflation than these wheels are rated for. Anyone run into this before?
