More facts to the discussion. Power is the speed at which energy is converted, more power generally means higher fuel consumption. More air = more fuel = more power = more speed. I cannot find any data on S&B site that support claims it improves fuel economy. I do find claims by customers BUT this brings to mind this ruling by 'The National Advertising Division of the Council of Better Business Bureaus'; Truth in Advertising: BP v. Royal Purple circa 2009. Look it up...
If you don’t have the knowledge to diagnose what might be wrong then maybe you might be wasting time and money doing the work yourself as you obviously got something wrong. Have no idea what that could but a good brake specialist mechanic probably knows more about brakes than you do.
Don't know if this could be a reason. I was at a friends shop a while back. They are all former GM techs and owners is former parts mngr of defunct Chevy/Olds shop. Their repair shop is an AC Delco authorized parts and service center. They actually are the go-to source for GM dealers needing batteries in this area.

Oversize tires are usually much heavier than the tires that come stock, the extra weight and height of the tire will affect performance. The taller the tire, the higher the gear ratio (lower number) will become. Larger tires will also have a larger rotating mass due to the increase in weight. Both of these issues will result in a loss of low end torque. Your engine will have to strain harder to get the wheels rolling at the start. The smaller the engine, the more it will affect performance and put a strain on all components not to mention up-sizing, or installing a taller tire, will lead to a
Not hay but I saw this last Saturday. I was coming around a corner in rural town (25mph) and saw a pu up ahead half on the road, half off with 4-way flashers on and cargo spilled on the road.
