What wheels and tires do you currently have? I bought a 2005, 4x4, regular cab Canyon with the Z-71 package. The truck came with the "God-awful" 265/75/15 General Ameri-Trac tires. I have no understanding why, but they are the WORST tires I ever drove on. The truck was literally all over the road.
Since I primarily drive this truck in the winter, I installed a set of Bridgestone Blizzak snow tires on it within a week of getting the truck. Big improvement in ride and handling, even though the Bridgestones are "snow tires".
I do drive the truck in the summer at times, and Blizaks don't last too long in the summer, so I made a "performance upgrade" for summer use. I installed a set of 16"x8" wheels, and 245/75/16 Firestone Destination LE tires. They're the same OD as the 265/75/15s, and they worked out quite well. I don't understand why the factory didn't go this route...

i just purchased a 2007 gmc canyon and i love it but i was wanting to put a suspension lift kit on it. but one of my co-workers who puts on lift kits all the time said that i shouldn't do it because the suspension lifts that are for them are crap and it makes them ride like shit. so i was wondering if any of that was true that he said. cuz i was really wanting to lift it but i dont want to screw it up.

Anyone replaced the horn in a 2007 Colorado? I took a look at it and it looks like you have to disassemble the front grill to get to it. Any tips would be greatly appreciated.
