I've heard good things about the new 6.6. My dad has been contemplating trading his 14 3/4 ton in (6.0) for a 21-22 with the gas 6.6. Still the same 6L80 from what I've read but I think the larger...

That's the same highway trip that I get my mileage from. My 05 does 20 mpg empty if I keep it at 70-ish. If I drive stupid to keep up with traffic at 85-ish it only drops to the mid 18's for MPG. ...

Time flies doesn't it? Hard to believe these trucks are getting that old already.

I don't have a new one but I do have an 05 4x4 crewcab duramax that I never drive unless I have to tow something.

I have used it on a couple road trips though. It has gotten a best of 20 mpg...

I was wondering if I read that right.

2 sets at 38,000 miles. So about 19,000 miles a set at $370 a piece.

They sure do look good though :biggthumpup:

It's the price that's a big difference. That's all my post was meant to reflect.

If I were spending that much on tires for our daily driver I think my wife would have a talk with me :laugh:

Yikes, 2 sets in 38k miles. That's at least $1500 twice.

That's what keeps me from buying them. We do at least 10,000 miles a year so in less than 4 years I'd spend over $3000 in tires LOL

Driven, Brad Penn (or Penngrade) is all good stuff, I don't think you could go wrong with any of those choices. The green stuff is popular.

Their F-70-15 is listed as 26.51 overall diameter.

Pretty close in diameter.

Yep, last year (June 2021) I ordered covers for the GTO and they showed up January this year. So they've been behind for quite a while.

It's pretty much like that with everything it seems.
