  1. Good to know. I aired up my tires cold to correct psi and it drifts to one side. As this is a used truck, I don’t know how often the PO rotated the tires, or when they were purchased. They are within tread limits. So I will take the truck into get the tires balanced and an alignment. I will ask if they should be rotated as I have no history and get their guidance.
  2. Thanks to all. I will get my tires rotated and an alignment in a few weeks, the front rotors were resurfaced by the dealership and other work prior to posting for sale and everything passed the VA state inspection to include emissions. The oil and filter, wiper blades were replaced before I bought the truck. I will check the transmission fluid. Brake and radiator fluid is clean, not dark or fouled. A lot of good positive ideas being passed here, myself and others appreciate them. As stated before I didn’t have a binder dedicated to maintenance of my last truck. This will provide a good baseline since this is a used truck with little recorded maintenance. For all I know the PO might have done all of his periodic maintenance by the book, but without positive evidence or receipts I can’t assume everything was done timely. Many thanks again for something that might be “common knowledge” but this is a big untimely investment for me and I wanted to start the maintenance and record keeping the right way with this truck.
  3. Great suggestions! All appreciated ?. That’s why this is a great forum because not everyone knows everything and sometimes outside thinking brings in a lot of great ideas.
  4. You know that’s a great idea since the truck has over a 154,000 miles on it and I’m planning a long trip towards late summer/fall. I hadn’t thought about that, what looks good by eye might well be out of spec. Thanks for the idea!
  5. Hahaha! Thanks, I will check the depths - definitely not may-pops, they look like they have some good tread ?. I’m a recent GM convert - had a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 SLT Quad Cab 8’ bed until the powers to be decided I needed a much newer truck by way of 40+ mph rear end collision. Life changes when you’re at a complete stop waiting to make a left turn, peaceful and quiet broken by screeching tires and sudden impact. Thing that gets me is that I was less than a minute to my front door... ?
  6. Thank you for the quick reply, I will check the depths and proceed accordingly. Steve
  7. I bought a Base 2015 GMC 2500HD Sierra /8’ bed 4x4 as a replacement for my truck that was totaled in a rear end collision. This used truck I bought has 154,000 miles on it and the car fax report just listed oil changes and inspections, some maintenance things, but no mention of tire rotations. The PO put on LT285/70R17 Nitto A/T Terra Grappler G2 on black aluminum rims and tires have a mold code indicating 2018 manufacturing date. My question is since I don’t have any history, should I rotate them now because there is no history. The front brakes were resurfaced, oil/filter and air filter were changed. At least this way I can start a record. What are your thoughts? Thanks in advance! Steve
