Just thought it would be good for people to hear from others without issues. I have a 2018 Colorado zr2 diesel midnight edition. It has been a fantastic truck both on and off road. It always turns heads when driving around. Even when off reading. I don’t have any upgrades worth posting about but I do have the shock skids and I believe it’s the 589 fab drive line. I switched all my interior lights to blue leds on inside. That’s it so far. To much 💩 eating my money like the insane apr and monthly payment I have to pay. But all this off topic. I have not had any issues with my truck. It has been a solid truck. So glade I traded my Toyota in for it. Best thing I did that year😎😎😎😎 Might be interested though to sell or trade my sports bar and lights really want to get the bds lift kit.

I also love my 18 ZR2 and have not had any issues. I've got about 16K more miles and have recently started the upgrades (Level, tires, debadged, etc. I'll be installing the shock skids and exhaust relocation sometime in the next few months as I'm getting it off road more for fun on the weekends.

I have a 2016 Z71 duramax and I love it... got 105,000 miles on it... dont know if I would buy another modern diesel though with all the crap on it.

Do yourself a favor get a scan tool and disable your egr. Engine performs better, gets better mpgs, and the oil stays cleaner longer

40,000 also on my 2018 Z71. So far all good, just put a new set of Cooper AT3 tires on it. Really like this truck and motor, hopefully it continues with no issues.

So what is your review on the Cooper AT3 tires?
I've only had the Cooper AT3 tires for just over a week now. So far all good. They ride nice and are quiet, they have given me good traction on dry and wet pavement. I don't really do any offroading, except hauling my dirtbike into dirt or grass parking lots at riding places. The tires they replaced were the original goodyears so I'm hoping to get a few more miles out of these.

I own a 2016 Canyon crew cab long box that has had one problem. All 4 Goodyear tires that came with it blew at the same time. They went 25k. Since all 4 blew, my friend brought his rollback and took the truck to my house. I drove it in the garage and put it up on the lift. With that said I went to my dealership with the sidewalls blown out. GM and Goodyear checked them over and found that they were flawed. They gave me money back and I put on the tires I presently have on the Canyon. Outside of the tire issue this truck has 1625 hours on the engine and 57k miles on it. It has been flawless. On the road I get 32 mpg. In town 24 mpg. Overall I get 27 mpg. Love the truck. It is a 4x4. I take it off road when I go camping. Fantastic vehicle.

Just a little something of note. My Goodyear tires that came on my Z71 2WD Diesel are sure noisy. After I had the truck for about a year I was changing the oil and say odd tire wear on the front tires, but it drove straight and didn't feel strange. FYI, I have not been off-road with it and have not ran over curbs or anything.

So I called he dealer, and they stated that the would not cover an alignment since I had the truck almost a year. So I took it to my friends shop that has a the full super duper Bear 4 wheel alignment machine. We put it on there and we both shock our heads; there was nothing... I repeat... nothing that was close to factory specification, and everything was all over the map. We also found that the 4 wheels were not aligned either! After about 2 hours of messing with it, we got everything right. As such, at about 35,000 miles, it looks like I'll be replacing these original tires soon.

The only ting we could figure is that the rear axle was not put in straight at the factory. So the computerized front end position placement was set so the truck would track OK, but no concern for tire wear. Probably thinking that the rear axle would never have been put in wrong.

My original Goodyear Wranglers lasted only 32,000 miles. Replaced with Michelins, very quiet, now have 48,000 and they look brand new.

So just today I got new feet for the baby Duramax. I got the Cooper Discoverer AT3 S4 on all 4 feet. Of course, it is just the first 50 miles, but they sure seem nice. I had 33,527 on the original Goodyears. They were nice when new as well, but time will tell.

FYI - I'm a Goodyear guy, but I just didn't get the good felling to replace with the same tires, and the other Wranglers for this size seemed cheesy to me. I also learned that I guess Goodyear purchased Cooper a few months ago... However, in my opinion, 33,000 miles is pretty poor for a set of tires in todays technology.

Hubs has them on his '06 Ram. And I had Coopers on my Escape before trading it for my Colorado. When I need mew tires they will definitely be Coopers.
