  1. Hi Guys Long time no posts here. I will soon need new tires to replace the original factory Goodyear Eagle LS-2 P275-55-R20 I am wondering if anyone here could offer some advice as to what you may have used to replace these tires. I am also trying to find out if I can go to a P285-55-R20 to get a bit wider tire. I sometimes drive in sand at The Outer Banks of NC (with reduced pressure). We have some snow and ice in the winter months in my area of the country. I also do a lot of highway driving at 75-80mph when the posted speed limit is 70 mph. I am hoping to get a tire that does not have vibration problems at those speeds. I also don't want the balancing weights on the outside of the rim lip. I prefer the "stick-on" type that goes on the inside of the rim so the ugly weights are hidden from view Can anyone make some recommendations? My budget is $1500
  2. Bug Deflector Help

    OK...thanks for the replies. I will keep looking.
  3. Hi All Long time no posts...Sorry bout that I have had the GM OEM bug deflector on my SD for 2 years, and I hated it. It fastened with 2 clips on the ends and taped to the paint. One day the tape let loose at 75mph and scratched my paint on the hood. I took it off and trashed it. I am looking at a new one. I don't want the same mounting technique. I want one that uses screws under the hood. I have read some older conflicting posts here and want to get some new facts Does the "WeatherTech Stone & Bug Deflector" use screws? http://www.autoanything.com/deflectors/61A4411A0A0.aspx According to the description, it does, but the customer reviews state otherwise. How about the "AVS Bugflector II Bug Shield" ? http://www.autoanything.com/deflectors/61A1051A0A0.aspx Any info or stories or other brands anyone can provide would be greatly appreciated. And...do there 2 bug deflectors cover the crome trim on the hood? Notice this picture of the GM OEM deflector, that has a cut out to show the chrome trim. I don't want to loose that if at all possible.
  4. Very Nice. Looks like my Denali Congrats. Your will love this truck. Until you get that tune, check out the "Tow Haul" mode. Press the button on the end of your shift lever.

    I got a similar email today from GMC for a first look at the 2014 GMC Sierra http://www.gmc.com/2014-gmc-sierra-pickup-truck.html?eVar36=eml_gmc_hr_k2xx_reveal_1212
  6. How-To: Heated Steering Wheel Install GMT900 Sierra.

    Heated wheel on with remote start would be nice. However, the wheel does heat up very fast after pressing the on/off button. Seems like only after 10 seconds and its already warm on my truck.
  7. I tried to put the RC 2" leveling kit on mine. Got it re-aligned aftwerwards. It drove prefect and it looked awesome perfectly leveled. However, from 60MPH and above I had vibration in the sterring wheel. The higher the speed, the worse the vibration became. I took the kit off and re-aligned and as of today, I am still at stock hiegth. Here is a picture with the RC 2" kit installed before I removed it.
