KLBOverland12 is on a distinguished road
KLBOverland12

Really impressed with my new 2012 JGC 6 cylinder. Couple questions
1) driving in Mn I have learned to appreciate snow tires for ice control. I have 20" wheels but want to buy a good looking wheel probably 18" as it looks as if 20" snows are a fortune. Suggestions?

2) still in break in mode and will bring in vehicle for an oil change and check up at 2500 miles. Noticing front passenger seat squeaks when unoccupied. Might be leather on leather. Also noticed a squeak in rear near wheel wells. Shocks or springs? Have isolated all interior possibilities. Any ideas?

3)I bought an aftermarket computer program aka "chip" to boost performance and mileage on a Ford F150. Was pretty happy with it. Anybody have any experience with these on the 6 cylinder motor? Recommendations pro/con?

welcome to JG!

1. IMHO stick with the 20" wheels
2.check the WK2 forum for similar noises
3. they dont do anything other than waste gas
