Last week the side airbags accidentally deployed while doing some off-roading.
This was an adhoc incident, as have been off-roading in the dunes for a couple of months, but this time there was no reasons for the airbags to deploy.
Therefore need to install a switch to cut them off while doing some trails or tracks getting to a camp site.
Here’s my Walter.

Correct me if I’m wrong.
I have a 2016 Silverado 1500
they can fit 33x11.5 factory.
Negative Offset in a wheel pulls the wheel out from the inside of the wheel well.
so if I have say a -24 mm offset wheel I can accommodate a wider tire.
I have mixed reviews on largest tire size. I only have the front leveled 2 in.
I just ordered a set of 5 pro comp wheels with -38 mm offset. Could pull the wheel out 1.5 inches.
im looking for tires. I wanna run a 305 70 r17
this should fit with no rubbing?
I forgot to mention I have a barricade pre runner front bumper with skids.
just looking for some reassurance on that tire size before I order. Looking to order on Thursday.
2020 Rocky Ridge K2 Silverado 5.3L
First time posting.
Have been expereincing intermittent brake lights staying on after engine shut down for several weeks. Took it to the dealership, who ran a diagnostic on the truck and came back with "all things look normal, no codes". By the time I got home, the brake lights were in a state of constant "on" and I was able to restart the truck without applying the brake, even with the key fob outside the vehicle. Received several Onstar warnings to "Service Parking Brake". The parking brake had engaged and would not release. I disconnected the battery for 20 minutes, reconnected the battery which cleared the code. Called the dealership and was told I would have to leave it with them for awhile (several days to a week) to find out what the issue is. Would be ok except they do not provide a loaner car and rentals are thru the roof in our area ($100/day) so I have been living with this inconvenience until I can find an alternative way to work (80 miles rt).
Then this happened over the past weekend:
While driving back from the lake with my boat in tow, the truck went into a critical brake failure mode. Here is the series of events. Moored boat at dock and went to retrieve truck to remove boat from water. Could not unlock door on truck with FOB. Truck was "dead". No voltage activity. Used 12v portable jump pack to start vehicle. Let run for @20 min before proceeding to drive home with boat attached. Check engine light was on for 30 seconds then went out, but no warning dialog boxes. After we were on the road for @15 min, in rapid succession, I received the following warning dialog boxes: Service Trailer Brake System Service ESC Service Parking Brake Brake System Failure - 62 MPH Top Speed Check engine warning light Traction Control Off warning light ABS Off warning light As soon as I saw this, I tried to apply the brakes and they went to the floor. As you might imagine, it was chaotic in the vehicle when it became apparent that the vehicle along with the 6000lbs of Boat/trailer in tow was not going to stop in any timely fashion. Along with the trailer brake failure and vehicle brake reduction, the backup surge brakes on the trailer would not engage due to the lack of quick inertia braking force. I had the pedal to the ground and eventually we came to a stop. The rest of the ride home (2 miles) was a 5mph white knuckle event. The insult to the injury is there has been no warnings, email, text or posted on account from Onstar about this series of events but... I did get one on the same day that my Oil change is due. I am posting the screen shots I took after we came to a stop.
It is being towed to the dealership tomorrow. I will let you know what happens. I absolutely love my truck. It is the 5th Chevy that Ive owned, and sadly the worst one of the bunch. M

I have a 2017 Silverado 1500 and just this year when the cold weather started, in the mornings when I start driving I get traction control off, stabilitrak off, and brake fluid low messages. I don't lose power and nothing else happens. After the sequence the traction control turns back on. It does it when I start accelerating and sometimes just random while driving. Anyone having this problem?
