GM had 2 tire sizes (265-70R-16 by Firestone Wilderness and 265-70R-17 Goodyear Wrangler) for that model year, I am not sure which one your's is equipped with... If you are happy with your OEM tires, you may consider staying with the same; however, if you really want to venture out for something different, there are websites available that can also help. Be sure the new tires you buy meet or exceed the ratings that are on your current OEM tire (Just as FYI, I had a very good experience with the Michelin LTX M/S in the past):

Thanks for the advice on the tires. Now I have a question about a part that is starting to flake on the interior. The small panel that outlines the radio has started to flake and I have been told by the dealer that a replacement part would cost $100.00 (I have 40,000+ miles and an extended warranty which my husband cringes about everyday - hey I had a head injury when I got the car, I kick myself too, believe me) and I have noticed that several buttons on the radio itself have begun to wear off (white is showing through) - I haven't even ventured to ask what the cost would be to replace the radio. Do you have any suggestions on where I could buy the panel part cheaper, do junk yards exist any more? And can I paint those buttons? I know that these are minor items but they are driving me nuts, especially since the incentives and warranties that they are offering now would mean a replacement for me gratis. I wonder about them taking care of existing customers (I've had the Envoy, Envoy XL, and now the Yukon - and someday would love to own the Yukon XL). Anyway, I appreciate your words of wisdom Thanks

Have you thought about Dash kit? See attached URL below for example?

Junk year is definitely an option, but you may have to check what's available in your local area through the Yellow Page under Used Auto Parts or Auto Salvage...
Spray painting over them, hmmm, sounds like the most inexpensive way to go, but there may be quite a bit of surface prep work, and eventually the paint may wear off again... You may want to contact Dupli-Color, let them know your situation and see what product they can suggest for this purpose that will last...
Lastly, instead of going through your dealership, have you checked those online GM parts stores, like the GMC Parts Direct... Before you do, you may want to call your dealer for those part numbers, so you can use those numbers for your search at the online stores for the exact part for your vehicle.

Im also looking for replacement tires for my 07 Yukon Denali. I need 275/55/20 and I have been searching the internet for costs and calling local tire shops. Still I just want to get the best deal possible. Does anyone know if an Alignment is manditory when getting your tires replaced? I had NTB tell me it was, and I dont want to pay 79.95 if its not needed. And I still haven't found the best tires, there's so many to chose from, any advise.

Not sure if this is the same, but I have 4 goodyear wranglers 265 75 r 16 on a GMC yukon (they were on my GMC suburban too) and both SUV's had the same wobble or vibration at about the same speed range, that is, it was most noticable between 65 and 80mph. the tires have been balanced 3 times now by different shops and this has not changed these F'd up tires. I blame the GOODYEARS for this and have not had the time or energy to seek out a real solution since they are out of warranty based on time (2 years) not treadwear (less than 2/32). I should have pursued it at the beginning. I have heard there is a better balancing / round / performance whatever tester that can determine if the tires have other problems like being out of "round", but do not know where to find one. maybe an authorized goodyear shop.

This is my first post; I have a yukon denali 07 and need to put new tires. I live in saudi arabia. I often drive my car in a good roads, however; rarely on rough ones. The temperature in summer time goes as high as 50c and very humid and it goes as low as 5c and it becomes very foggy. it rains but no very heavy but when heavy trucks spills petroleum products the roads become very very slippery.
#29 of 30 NEED TO BUY NEW TIRES
Apr 03, 2013 (10:56 am)
Could anyone please advice me on what brand name of tires I should buy. I have YUKON 07. Live in Saudi Arabia. I mostly drive my car on well paved roads. I occasionally drive in on rough ones. The temperature in summer time goes as high as 50 Celsius (°C) and humidity goes up to 90% with big trucks spill petroleum products on roads and make roads very slippery. It doesn't rain very often and it's not very heavy. The temperature drops to 5(°C).
Thanks on advance

It isn't so much brand as it is the particular tire model. There are many brand/models that would not be suitable for your climate - and I assume the folks selling tires in your area would know what works and sell those - and would know what doesn't work, and not sell those. Those folks are in the best position to advise you.
And spilled petroleum is a problem no matter what tire you have. It is a lubricant after all.
