  1. I have a set of four OEM Chevy center caps for 18" and 20", 8 lug wheels. They are in good condition, all the tabs are intact, and they come with the spring clip installed. The model number of these is 9597789. These things are insanely expensive considering what they are. This is a chance to replace damaged or missing caps, or convert from GMC to Chevy (I went the other way). I'm looking to get $80 shipped for the set via paypal gift. I would prefer to sell as a set. The pictures below are of one cap, but the others are in similar condition. Thanks.
  2. I ended up getting a Hypertech Speedometer Calibrator, which I then upgraded to the Max Energy (long story). I installed the regular tune, and fixed the speedo issue. So far my overall impressions of the tune are positive. Other than the speedo, and the regular tune, I bumped the shift firmness up 25%. I didn't change anything else. I might play with the shift points, but for now I'm going to drive it for a couple weeks as is. There isn't a huge difference, but there is a notable difference. Seems to have more pep, but nothing earth shattering. I think the truck is learning how to run/drive right now as every time I drive it it seems to have a bit more snap than the last time.
  3. I love Rock Auto. The problem is with so many options it isn't always clear as to what you actually need. I crawled under the rig and the number is 22811847 so it looks like I got off easy price wise.
  4. My wife's 2012 Yukon needs new shocks. It has the ZW7 premium ride option. I'm having a hell of a time finding rear shocks for it, and searching this forum and google isn't helping. Almost all of the information I'm finding is related to the previous generation 99-06 models. I understand I can use a "standard" shock on the front, but the rear shocks are really causing me grief. On previous models I see where folks swap out the Nivomat shocks for standard models, then swap the springs for z71 springs. I don't seem to be able to find that option for the newer rigs, unless the springs are the same. I'm looking for advice. I need to crawl under her rig and get a model number off the shocks, to at least give me something to start googling with. Either a less expensive option for stock shocks, or a way to convert would be great. Thanks.
  5. I was surprised to see it was off that much. The stock tires were 265/70-17 Duravis, which are ~31.6", and the new tires are Michelin AT2 with a diameter of ~34.1" which is quite a difference. When I first got the OEM 20" wheels, they had worn down stock SR-As on them and I noticed even with them the speedo was off by 1-2 mph. I'm assuming my computer was set based on the size of the tire that was on it when it left the line.
  6. Has anyone used the Diablosport intune i1000? I had 275/65-20s installed yesterday and my speedo is off by ~6 mph at 65 mph (based on GPS speed) and I'd like to fix that and maybe tweak a few other things while I'm at it.

    I'll take it for $50 shipped to 49916
  8. I think I have a set, if you're still looking.
  9. Do these just press fit in, or do those springs lock into something? Thanks.

    I'm in the market for two sets of wheels. The first is a set of 17" wheels for a 2004 2500HD. This is for my old truck which is now just a plow truck, so don't need to be pretty but need to be functional and not pitted/corroded so they hold a good bead/air. The second set I'm looking for is a set of 18" wheels for my 2015 GMC 2500HD. Thanks.
  14. This. You'll have more tire options, and the tires will be considerably cheaper. Mounting/unmounting tires twice a year will eventually take it's toll on your wheels, and at $15/tire for mounting it doesn't take long for the extra set of wheels to pay for themselves. Not only that, but if you live in an area that requires snow tires, than you live in an area where they use chemicals on the road that will destroy your wheels' appearance. Being able to swap them on and off yourself is nice as you have a lot more control over when you swap them, and if you get a freak early/late storm you can quickly swap them out yourself. Other than the initial cost (which you'll recover) and needing a place to store them, there aren't any downsides to have a set of mounted snow tires/wheels. As far as actual snow tires vs. AT tires - there is no comparison. The best AT tire in snow on the market (up to reader to define) will suck compared to an average snow tire, and good snow tires will only be that much better. I say this from 25+ years of experience living and driving in the UP of Michigan where we get nearly 300" per season.

    Just curious to know what you don't like about them. I just installed a set so wondering if there is anything I should be on the lookout for.
