  1. CHROME OR PAINTMATCH

    I like color keyed bumpers and chrome both. Chrome wheels for me (not PVD chrome). I don't like the cheap rattle can looking black wheels. Awful... Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  2. Ok, so either something is twisted on your bed or I'm looking at an optical illusion. Anyone else see this lol? Sent from my SAMSUNG-SM-G870A using Tapatalk
  3. Does anyone know when the '19 SLE's will start arriving at the dealers? Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk
  4. GM dropped the ball

    I think the round fender wells on the Silverado look better than the sim card fenders in the Sierra though. Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk
  5. Finally!

    Love the chrome too. I can see ugly cheap flat black rattle can looking wheels are a fad fixing to fade out. I see more buyers going with chrome and aluminum wheels. Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk
  6. "Chevy Shake" 2017

    Wouldn't say that's the solution. From the original thread (800 + pages) and several other threads from this forum on the shake, there's been many fixes from tire balancing, new tires, balancing the driveshaft, driveshaft runout, re-torqueing drivetrain bolts, rebuilding the differential, changing axles, steering gear bushings, front end bushings etc. etc. Some have not found a fix and have tried several things and many tried re-torqueing the U bolts so that's not the "awarded fix". I had a '14 Sierra with a vibration around 75. The ring and pinion fixed it for me. I have a '16 Sierra now and it's smooth as glass. The trucks are hit and miss. I'm curious to see what the '19 will be like in regards to vibration.
  7. Does anyone know if the wheels from '14-'18 will be the same for the '19's? I'm sure they will be 6x139.7 and 78.1 hub centric bore. Wondering about the offset. Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk

  10. That's been out and has been posted some time ago.
  11. "Chevy Shake" 2017

    There's a 787 page thread on this issue already (link below). Some had their problem fixed with different things. It's a lot to read through with a lot of good info and it may help you in finding a fix. Not all the trucks have the shake. It's hit and miss. I had a '14 Sierra and now a '16 Sierra with no shakes. Hopefully the issue will be corrected on the new body '19's.
  12. You will find the best match and paint through automotive touchup. They're down the road in N.O. always a perfect match and second to none on quality. On small chips I use a quality small tapered brush from an art/hobby store. The paint pen just puts a blob of paint that is higher than the stock paint and is not a neat and professional job. With the paint from AT and the right size brush for your chip, you can lay the paint the correct mil and it looks much nicer. https://www.automotivetouchup.com/ Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk
  13. No that's about correct. I purchased the OEM caps for 2014 up that are sold with the 22" wheels. The OEM caps from my factory 20's fit perfect but were polished aluminum and not chrome. Sent from my LG-V495 using Tapatalk
  14. Yea F.R. has the slightly wider spoke like OEM.
  15. Factory Reproductions has them.
