Re: Snow Tires? =New Tires

I've been driving for 50 years, owned 4x4s for 47 years, and will say that the Latitude Tours that came on my 2012 GC Limited are the worst tires I've ever had for winter traction. Don't care what...

Re: tires are whooped... 19k miles!!!

Did StaticFX ever say what make of tires he has?
I think the Latitudes are totally unsuited for PA winters, and consider them a pure summer tire. I got a set of new wheels with new Latitudes...

Re: Frame mounted under-vehicle storage?

My 06 Trailblazer had the underslung spare held with a small winch. When I needed it, the winch was rusted fast and no way could I get that tire down. Had to take the flat to a service station and...

Re: Outside lock button

Re: Side view mirrors auto tilt when in reverse

And while they are doing the re-programming, make the auto-tilt disabled when in Tow/Haul mode. Can't see the trailer when backing up with the mirrors tilted.

Re: 2014 Overland mirrors when in reverse

Re: Sport mode

Might the wind have been a factor? I've noticed about 1-2 mpg difference going with the wind or against the wind, otherwise all factors being the same.

Re: Michelin Latitude Tour

Mine are about 3/4 shot at 30,000 miles. They are smooth and quiet, but were the worst tires I've ever had for winter traction. I got an extra set of rims off ebay and put true winter tires on them.

Re: Transmission Shudder

That's great news. Do you know specifically what the updates were? This shudder/fishbite issue is the only complaint I have about my 2012 Limited, but it is plenty annoying.

My 2012 Limited has had the same issue since I got it in Nov 2011. It works about half the time. Lately, I've had better luck with Bluetooth streaming than via the USB connection.

Re: Trying to decide: 20" wheels vs 18"

Well, that's at least two of us. My '12 Limited had 20" wheels on the lot, and I had them put 18s on. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but I much prefer the look with a beefier sidewall. I do go offroad a...
