    Whatever this forum told me to do
    that must be a big heavy battery pack!

    CT 100kwh ~260miles
    GM 212kwh ~440 miles

    I know how long it takes to charge our MS. if I'm almost empty, it takes ~40 minutes in a 150kw charger - or thereabouts.

    so..~90 minutes for a GM truck. yes, 250kw chargers will be less time.

    that's if they can use the Tesla chargers.

    no, thank you.

    non-tesla chargers in my area. LOL

    One in houston.

    ONE.

    I think Chevy is getting the nacs port soon and they all will be able to charge on Tesla's chargers with adaptor.

    I'm still holding out for the Cybertruck

    It's ALMOST not funny.

    She doesn't drive anywhere weird.

    but man, those tires pick up everything.

    Do other folks with these high-falooting tires have similar issues....or no?

    because it's clearly a thing.

    I agree.

    but - I can't be alone in this situation??

    or can I?

    do MS Plaid's get boo-koo flats?



    So I finally convinced her that keeping spares in the garage is EXPENSIVE.

    if we just let Discount tire swap them out on warranty...it's only $110.
    <each tire is $566>

    that summarized a 25 minute conversation.

    as it relates to this specific topic....

    correct me if I'm wrong please.

    Non-Tesla vehicles can only charge on specific Tesla chargers that are set up for such. Right?

    19k miles on wife's MYP and not a single flat. My 22 Tundra on the other hand has had 2 punctures in 26k miles that I was able to plug myself

    see...that's good info.

    I've got 95k on my Tundra...1 flat.

    ONE.

    and I work in an industrial warehouse yard on Houston ship channel!



    her Tesla...I think that's 8 flats & 6 new tires in 27k miles.

    you know those solid tires they make for Bobcats? I wonder if they would fit?

    21s on Performance suspension already ride like crap, might as well try those lego tires.

    We do have a set of rear spare tires in the garage too. lol. Hate the staggered setup because you never know which tire will get a flat

    just knowing there are other humans on this Earth that have spare tires in the garage brings me great comfort.

    Those are the big things yep. Make sure that rear parking break assemblage is intact so braking works properly, don't trust anyone's word on the timing belt (including the mechanic if they have a receipt, visually inspect it), if it's 4WD be sure to at least test 4HI, and that should save you a lot of the big hassles.

    If in doubt with rust, PM me some pics. Common places to check:
    • Where the crossmember above the spare tire meets the framerails (4 intersections)
    • Look inside the framerails under the cab area, specifically look for the frame stiffener Toyota put inside the framerail, make sure it's not delaminating
    • Check at all the cab body mounts, and where the bed sits on the frame
    • Check any spot where suspension components meet frame (leafs/shackles, strut towers, etc)
    • Carefully inspect the towing hitch area (if present)
    In general, inspect for fluid leaks on the steering rack, back of the engine block, bottom edge of the valve covers, around the dipstick tube, front of the engine block (cam seals, but also the oil cooler). If 4WD look for grease sling evidence especially from/around the inner boot (nearest the front diff). Look for leaking at rear diff. Inspect carrier.

    That'd be my big list.
