  1. The titanium model does. It may be an option on other trims though.
  2. Wheel Size Question

    I recently put 18's on mine and really the ride is barely more rough than the 16's I took off. I'll take some pics tomorrow so you can see the offset but I think they turned out awesome.
  3. I recently put on some General Altimax RT43's with new wheels and I'm liking them so far. From the reviews they seem to last forever and they have been very good in all the rain we have had recently. I only have 5k miles on them so far but I'll be posting up as I get some serious miles on them in a year or so. Price was very reasonable too.
  4. TC aftermarket wheels

    Looks good! Here are the 18's I put on recently.
  5. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    Here it is with them mounted up finally. I'll get some better pics tomorrow when its not so dreary outside.
  6. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    We only get a few inches a couple times a year anymore.
  7. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    For sure I look at all aspects but cost/mileage is a big factor for me as I drive 40k a year or so. I don't want just some super hard tires that are really loud either so I read a ton of reviews. Michelin's in general are hard to beat but I think these will serve me well from what I've read. Also just got the call from Discount Tire that my tires made it in so they will be going on later this afternoon. I do see a lot of people put super cheap tires on their vehicles but man thats just scary to me. I had bought a car that the dealer put some no-name crap on it and they didn't make it 20k miles and were wearing terribly uneven. They were also atrocious in the snow and rain. Mine and my family's safety is just too important to cheap out on tires.
  8. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    Will do. And I'm almost to 60k miles on the oem tires and they could go another 5-10k I'd bet. Pretty remarkable for an OE tire. I went with General Altimax RT43 tires which I think will get me in the 80-100k mile range from the research I've done. Normally I go michelin but they didn't really have a good option in a 225/45-18.
  9. 2nd gen-how many miles on stock tires?

    My new wheels will be here tomorrow and tires should be here any day as well. I'll post up some pics once they are on but I'm super excited to see how it turns out.
  10. Mind sharing what you paid to get the transmission serviced? Not sure I want to deal with that on this thing.
  11. I'm using Castrol edge I believe-whatever their full synthetic is. I've use mobil 1 as well. I think the most important thing is sticking with synthetic and keeping clean oil in the motor. I'm not actually sure what they recommend for intervals on the transmission but I'm sure its like 100k or something crazy. No clue about the undercoating.
  12. I spoke too soon on issues haha! Took it in as it started to shift a bit weird st times and had a leaking axle seal. Not exactly a huge deal but got it lol fixed up and shifting perfect yet again. Just glad it's still under warranty.
  13. Stock wheel weight?

    Mine are alloy 16".
  14. One year ago I bought my 2015 TC titanium. It had right at 10,000 miles on it and now I'm at 51k miles so I've put a lot of time behind the wheel of this thing. Overall I'm super happy with the van. I am a sales rep and I always have a pile of samples, catalogs, etc with me. I also have two young kids so the roominess of the van is great for me. I took out the third row to give me a little extra room in the back and haven't needed to put them back in yet. I've tracked every tank and I averaged 24.2 mpg with a best of 28.7 and low of 22.7. I wish the mileage was a little better but I generally am going 70+mph and on trip I take has a speed limit of 75 where I'm doing at least 80 for 4 hours so really not too bad given the room it has. Still have the stock 16" tires and they still really look pretty good and I'd say I'll get another 10k or so out of them. No major issues so far either. I did have a leak from one of the roof rack plugs but they took care of it quickly. Mine has the touchscreen nav, heated windshield, remote start etc and all the features have worked great. I did crack a windshield and it took a few days for them to get the right one in but I don't think the heated windshield is super common. I'm hoping to get 200k or so out of this and I maintain it to a high degree. I do 5k mile oil changes with full synthetic oil and will get the transmission serviced soon as well.
