If you don't mind driving a behemoth consider a Suburban or Yukon XL. I just picked up a new-to-me 2017 Yukon XL SLT for $41k. It's not a Denali and doesn't have the 6.2, but I like it.

I found a set I like at rpmtakeoffs.com. I stuck with 18" wheels, wasn't interested in 20's or 22's.

I bought Chevy OEM wheels, they were able to substitute GMC caps at no charge.

I'm afraid that's not going to happen.



I hate the "hips" on the new MC's too.

I'm glad I'm not in the market for a new boat or new truck.

And Hey! Get off my lawn!

If anyone cares, here's the final result. The used OEM wheels I wanted would have cost nearly $700 with shipping and TPMS sensors. It would have been another $100+ to install my used tires, which...

Of course the local tire place would love to sell me a set for $50 a pop. I've seen generic units on eBay at $57 for a set of four and wonder about the quality.

Hmmm. If there was only someone...

I just bought registrations for 2019: three vehicles, two boats, three trailers. I paid $360, and I know that's a good deal.

What does anyone else pay?

They say that if you over-inflate ST tires by 10 PSI they are good for another 5-10 mph. I pump mine up to 60 psi, and I don't hesitate to drive 70 mph on flat smooth roads.

I believe it's 1/4" Starboard. Don't use plywood, you'll regret it when it starts to rot. Permatex Headliner and Carpet Adhesive will work great to get carpet to stick to Starboard
