  1. Information on Vibration Analysis and Diagnostic 2014/2015 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra This seems to be a vibration campaign that has been around since January 2015. I have seen many complaints on different forums about this issue. I also have a vibration/harmonics issue that is not there all of the time but most. My issue seems to be centered around the V4 decel, and body mount configuration. This link is filled with a ton of information about various causes and repairs many of the 2014/2015 GM truck owners are experiencing. Some may be experiencing a combination of more than one issue at a time. Many more may not be experiencing any vibration at all. I do believe for those folks with the "Cadillac ride" its only a matter of time before they start experiencing vibration/harmonics issues. Its kinda nice to get this information out so that GM can streamline the repair process even further. If enough of these trucks show up for repair request for vibration they may even send out letters to further enhance quality control. http://oemdtc.com/6392/information-on-vibration-analysis-and-diagnostic-2014-2015-chevrolet-silverado-gmc-sierra/3 If link does not work copy and past in your browser.
  2. I have a 2019 Silverado LT RWD. Put on a 2in rough country level kit with 295/60/20 Nitro Terra Grappler G2 on the stock rims. There is no rub at all! All clear pulling in and out of the driveway and at full lock! It was close at discount tire when they did the test fit but it worked. The only issue I have is after my alignment my steering wheel is a little off center to the right. Not bad but annoying on a brand new truck. They realigned it 4 times and came close but no luck getting it exactly centered. I gave up. The truck drives straight though.
  3. Have the 6.2/10 speed AT4 with 18" duratracs. Will be doing a trip from Edmonton, AB to Halifax, NS and back, or Edmonton to Halifax to Florida, back to Edmonton this summer. Was thinking about swapping to some sort of highway tires and curious of what kind of fuel economy improvement ill see over the duratrac AT tires.
  4. From what I can tell by searching this is either a series 27 or 50. Actually the wheels look identical to me so I’m not sure what the difference is between the 2 series. From what I can tell this wheel has been discontinued and it is not in my budget to buy 5 new wheels!!! My question is does it have to be a fancy wheel? I don’t know much about these lifts and wheels and offsets but can I just buy a cheap steel wheel that will fit and throw a tire on it? Mickey Thompson 35x12x20 ATZP3
  5. I'm looking at a 2015 1500 with a 4.3, 3.42 gears. I would add a leveling kit with 33x12.5s. What should I be expecting for gas mileage? Would a 5.3 get better MPG with the lift/tires? What is your current tire/lift/engine/mpg? I tried the search feature but couldn't find a ton of what I was looking for.
  6. 4 Barely used Nitto Terra Grappler G2’s, 12/32 tread left, brand new they have 13/32 tread, have about 6,000 miles on them, no holes, no patches, no curb rash. They still have the hairs on the sidewall! I lifted my truck and bought the same tire in a bigger size. My loss your gain. New on Discount Tire they are $1,384.00 plus tax, asking $1,050.00 for the set. I will not sell separately. Cash only, local pick up only. Located in NJ
  7. Hello Everyone! I am a relative new member who just leased a 2019 Silverado RST 4x4 at the end of November. It is my first pick up truck and I love it so far. The truck came with the stock 18 inch wheels with Michelin Primacy LTX 265/65R18 tires. The tires have been great on the highway but I have had some slight issues already in the snow and ice. I am relatively new to All terrain tires but I would like to swap my tires for a mild all terrain. I was also thinking of going up a tire size, maybe to a 275/65R18 or a 275/70R18. Would going to a 275 tires cause an issues for the stock suspension or my speedometer? Should I just upgrade to an all terrain and stay at the 265 size? I am going to be mostly driving on the highway and around town. But I will be driving in the snow and ice during the winter months. I would also be towing a pop up camper / possibly driving the truck on gravel / dirt but no serious off roading. From my research I am considering the Nitto Terra Grappler G2's, the Falken WildPeak AT3W and the Toyo Open Country A/T2. If anyone could provide any advice or information I would greatly appreciate it. Thank you ahead of time.
  8. Looking to get another wheel and tire set up. So I’m selling my 24in reps. They have about 12-13k miles on them. Been on the truck for a little over a year. Have plenty tread left. No curb damage, and wheels are properly maintained. Asking 1800.00 OBO. Included; TPM sensors, lug bolts and wheel locks, black center caps, and chrome center caps. Feel free to message me with any question. I’m in Destin, Fl. Will consider traveling within reason. Could possibly ship at buyers expense. Thanks
  9. Hey All, As the title states, it's about time for new tires on my 2017 GMC Sierra 1500 SLT Z-71. It is bone stock and I will likely keep it that way, for now. The Goodyear Wrangler SR-A tires have been serviceable, but I will not go back with them. Looking for All-Terrains with a decent tread pattern, load rating, and relatively quiet. I know that a lot of folks like the BFG T/A KO's and I had them on a previous truck and they did not do well. Heavy, loud, always out of balance and ride quality was poor in my experience. They look great, though. I replaced those with Cooper Discovery AT3's and was pleased. I have not seen many GMC's with those tires? I am looking for 275/55-20 and would like to stay under $1k, but closer to $800. I drive mostly on paved roads, spend most of the 3 month hunting season on dirt/gravel roads, and occasionally tow a 24' bay boat (~4k lbs loaded down) Advice, input, experience, and pics are much appreciated! Thanks in advance!
  10. Hey, so I installed larger 33" tires and had to remove the splash guard as it was causing some rubbing. Anyone know where I could get some plugs to fill in these holes that the splash guards left? Thanks!
  11. What size tires should I use on my RC 3.5 inch lift on my 2019 Sierra? Big enough so they look nice on the truck and nothing to crazy maybe 30’s?
  12. 2019 chevy 2500 midnight edition wheels for sale 8 lugs 600 miles on them. Asking 2,000 for them OBO
  13. I know the 6112s are semi-new to the community. My question is what would be the lowest possible notch I can install these and still have enough clearance to fit 275X 65R 20 KO2s. I’d imagine the notch settings are similar to the 5100s accept there is 1 extra notch I believe. I have been searching online for the past week and cannot find anyone that confirms the lowest possible setting to fit these tires. I know I can install them at the highest setting and fit just fine, But I am trying to keep rake in the rear due to occasional towing and i do not want to add a leveling block to the rears. I was thinking the third notch (1.25” of lift) would work but I’m not sure if It will get rubbing. Does anyone have any idea on this? I currently have a 2.5 inch leveling spacer but do not want to install it when I switch to the Bilstein 6112s. Thanks!
  14. As the title says, I need some advice from people who have lowered their trucks. It's a 2001 silverado 2wd stepside. I'm thinking of 20 or 22 inch rims but I dont want any rubbing. Max width would be great too cause I'm going to be twin-turboing it. Also this is my first truck so I don't want to be doing any fender tubbing or anything else permanent. Any help would be appreciated! Edit: I haven't lowered it yet. Kinda forgot to mention that
  15. Hi everyone, I am new with this forum so if this isn't the right place to put this question please let me know. Anyways I have a new 2019 Silverado 1500 and am looking at getting new wheels and tires. The only modification i've done is have a 2" leveling kit done, other than that I have stock 17" wheels with standard tires. I would like to get bigger more aggressive tires for some off-roading but still have good on road handling. I am not looking to get huge tires, just bigger than stock. I am fairly sure I want to get method NV wheels. If anyone has any idea what my limitations are as far as wheel and tire size that would be great. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks!
  16. I have a 2014 GMC Sierra SLE and just put in a 2" Leveling kit. My truck came with BFG Wranglers 265/65/18 and I wanted to upgrade to BFG All Terrain TA KO 275/70/18. The problem is they only come in 10ply. I have heard with the new suspension you wouldn't really notice the difference but how rough would the 10 ply be?
  17. I am buying new tires and have read nothing but good things about the Nitto Ridge Grapplers (35x12.5x20). I decide that there is no downside to trying them out, and start the process to buy them and notice the only come in an F rated 12 ply. Is anyone else running this tire on a 1500? How is the ride on it? Also what PSI are you running the tire at. I believe the 35x12.5x18 Ridge Grappler is F rated as well.
  18. New set of 4 2019 Chevrolet Silverado 18” Wheels and Goodyear Wrangler 265/65 18r tires less than 150 miles on them (changed tires on my truck). I am located in Charlotte, NC. Looking to get $900 out of them (what I paid for new wheels).
  19. Took off my 2018 at 1500 miles. No damage, still has TPMS. Located in Baton Rouge, LA. Looking to get $800. SOLD
  20. Test fitted a 305 55 20 Toyo AT at local tire shop and it fit the stock 20" wheel (no spacer, no mods). It was close to upper control arm. My preference is a Nitto Terra Grappler G2. Is anyone running a 305 on a 20? I pay a restock fee if I order them and they don't fit. Is it worth the gamble?
  21. Thought I'd post a review of the newly installed suspension and wheel set up on my 2016 GMC Sierra Denali 1500. Previous set up was stock MagneRide suspension with ride height sensors and 22" stock wheels with Nitto Terra Grappler G2's size 285/45r22. I'm at 70k miles and the ride was steadily getting worse (too stiff), so I researched for a while and ended up installing the following: HaloLifts Boss Ultimate Kit (adjustable coilovers for 1" to 3" of lift in front, and 1" of lift in the rear) - http://www.halolifts.com/HaloLifts-Boss-Ultimate-Kit-fits-your-2007-UP-GM-SilveradoSierra-1500_p_220.html Stock GMC Sierra 18" rims (powder coated black) with Falken Wildpeak AT3W's size 275/70r18 Bypass sensor kit for all 4 MagneRide shock sensors and all 4 ride height sensors (I removed all ride height sensors that are mounted to the frame) - http://www.xineering.com/shocksims.html Up first, the HaloLifts Boss Ultimate Kit At $1299, this is a more expensive kit vs the Fox, Bilstein, or Rancho equivalant. What swayed me to this kit was that I was not looking for a crazy lift and I wanted something that was plug and play should I go a different route once these start to fail (like all shocks eventually do). Additionally, I found multiple reviews on this forum and other brand forums where people said they had installed Fox, Bilstein, and/or other brands and this was the best riding kit and worth the extra cash. You'll find a rep from the company, Alex, who's posted in this forum, as well as others, and he says call him with any questions. I did, and he answered every time and would not let me go until I had EVERY question answered. The customer service is outstanding with this place. I ended up going with the coilovers set at 1.5" of lift and I put .5" spacers beneath it to get 2" of total lift and the softest ride possible. Each kit is made custom to what you want, so that's how it arrived for me. You can have the coilovers set at 2" if you want, then add 1" of spacers underneath. Since I am only doing 2" of lift, I did not purchase new UCA's. Below are pics of me opening the packages. Again, thoroughly impressed with how sealed everything was with plenty of foam and cardboard to protect everything. Install was a breeze, thanks to instructions that were included and my convo with him over the phone. One last thing, the "do the rear shock boots go down or up?" debate has been settled. According to HaloLifts they go down :-) Next, the new wheel/tire set up I downsized from a 22" set up to an 18" set up so I could get more sidewall and a softer ride. While I like the look of a larger rim, it was so easy to get scratches on the 22" rims since they are so close to the ground and there's not enough sidewall on the tire to bulge out a little bit to help protect the rims. So, new set up gets me a softer ride and better rim protection. I went with a stock rim and had it powder coated black because I've had mixed experience with aftermarket rims (good and bad). As far as the tire choice, Falken Wildpeaks kept coming up as best all around value for it's performance. I've had KO2's in the past, as well as other AT tires but I wasn't blown away by their performance for how much you spend on them. Falken's were cheaper, but hold up well in rain, snow, and mud. Plus they have an aggressive look, that's a nice bonus. Below are pics of the truck with the new wheel and suspension set up. I'll follow that up with the obligatory, "pardon the dirty truck, haven't had time to wash it". Last, the MagneRide bypass kit This only applies to those who have the MagneRide suspension and ride height sensors (certain trims like Denali). If you do have it, you'll need to bypass the sensors or you'll forever be dismissing a message that says "service suspension system". If you can live with that, then ignore all of this. If it'll drive you nuts, you have 2 options - one cheap, but could lead to other issues and the other is not so cheap, but will not have issues. There are 8 sensors total, 4 shock sensors and 4 ride height sensors. The first option is to go cheap and buy 8 resistors (3 ohm, 25 watts). You then splice them in at every sensor. The risk here is corrosion, if you don't seal the splices properly this leads to the wire harnesses going bad and having to purchase all new harnesses and resistors to do all of the work again (and now you've spent more money on the harnesses). In all, this could run you about $50 for resistors, heat shrink, and a heat gun. The second option is to do what I did and buy the professional bypass kit from x-ineering. It's $425, but they'll give you a $75 discount if you post about your install on social media. I went this route because they clip in and seal the wiring, just like the stock sensors. No risk of corrosion and everything they make is backed by warranty. Overall, I'm super happy and love the ride. Only a couple hundred miles on it so far, I'll report back after all my Thanksgiving travel coming up (1500+ miles). Let me know if there are any questions!
  22. A flat Good Year Wrangler SR-A set the tire shopping in motion, and a 10% off sale on Nittos convinced me to try the 35x11.50r20 Ridge Grapplers. My goal was to get as much tire as possible without having to adjust the suspension so as to retain the stock ride, keep costs down, and achieve the aesthetic I like for modern 4x4 trucks. I was prepared to crank the front keys a few turns for up to 1" of leveling, but my preference was to avoid this if possible. Ridge grapplers have two sidewall designs on the tire; one side reminded me of Transformers, so I went with the more subdued sidewall. This doesn't impact fitment. After about 20 miles of driving and some parking lot testing turning the steering back and forth, the tires fit fine with only a few close spots throughout the range of motion. I've seen people report frame rub at full lock with these sizes; it hasn't happened to my truck yet, but I wouldn't be surprised if it rubs mildly while turning sharply over rough terrain. Rear clearance is fine. A few tips: Check the actual dimensions of the tire you're choosing. The Nittos are 35s, but the actual diameter is about 34.7". Each manufacturer is a little different, and most list the true dimensions on their websites. The same applies to metric sizes - a BFG may be narrower than a Toyo. Looking at my truck, 35x12.50r20 would have fit too, but would probably rub on the wheel wells while going over bumps during a turn. The 11.50s provide just enough extra room that my truck has yet to rub, though my mileage count is low (20 miles since install) so I'll update this thread as I add miles. Expect to lose fuel economy. No data yet, but I anticipate a 1-2 MPG drop. Aftermarket wheels change everything. The popular offset or "poking" look makes it harder to stuff big tires without a lift. If you're changing wheels and tires, disregard this thread. What's next? Fresh oil, a detail, and maybe a front window tint. I'd like a Corsa, but they're $$$. Please excuse the dirty truck:
  23. $2,000 + shipping Just lifted my 2019 Trail Boss so these wheels and tires are for sale. Bought these wheels/tires new April 28, 2019 and they have approximately 1,500 miles on them.

  24. Hello, I have the Chevy Silverado 1500 4x4 with 265/70/17 tires. I’m am planning to get the General Grabber AT2 Tires. I have some questions, on the General site it said they won’t fit my truck, even though they are the same dimensions; 265/70/17. Does anyone here have those tires on the same truck or same body year? Just wondering if they fit and how they are. Also do you know if they are LT’s or P’s?
  25. Looking for some tire recommendations for my 2018 Z71 Silverado 4x4. I currently have a Moro fab lift (3” in the front and 2” in the rear) and am looking to run 33’s. Anyone running 275/70r18’s or 285/70/r18’s or 285/75/r18’s? Drop pictures and recommendations if you have them. Looking to keep my stick 18” rims.
