Poor Ride with wheel vibration
By Timmcp on


2003 GMC Sierra 1500 4dr Extended Cab SLE 4WD SB (4.8L 8cyl 4A)


After about one week of driving, the
truck began to vibrate excessivly
especially on concrete freeways. Took
it in 4 times, each time the wheels
were way out of balance. They can't
figure it out. They think that maybe
the tires are moving on the rim.
These are Bridgestones on aluminum
wheels. It turns out that you may get
Bridgestones or Firestones(same ones
recalled by Ford) depending on what
they have laying around at GM. It is
made worse by a poor suspension design
that does not perform well at highway
speeds. At this point the tires are
still out of balance and the dealer
doesn't know what to do or what is

Best Features

The truck has a pretty good motor and transmission. It shifts and accelerates well.

Worst Features

Improve the suspension design, focus on quality,go with the Michelins.
