Very nice! Congrats. Are the black bowties factory? I've seen a few newer Chevy trucks with them but figured the owners did that.

Understand (now) people request the black bow ties as part of the deal and certain vehicles already have them / but we were not aware until in the aftermarket section so I paid for them / heck, needed something to get him off peddling the magic wax and carpet sealer. Did order a nice 3 row GM set of mats similar to weather tech deep mats ...

Funny tires to have on a truck, IMO. I have the Energy Saver AS tires on my Honda Accord Hybrid and like them very much!

Yep / P265 = the ride and MPG / and another +350 HP engine on 0w20 to squeeze a bit more. I did read a road test where they said unless you pony up for the magnetic suspension stay off the 20s as the 18 tires ride well for a body on frame with coil over shock kit
The tires are pretty mild / quiet but will use 4WD more in sand and wet/slick boat ramps

The factory tire size for a 1997 Chevy Tahoe was 235/75/15.

Same size tire as the 1978 Cadillac Sedan DeVille.

I miss the ice cream in Katy. It was called something like Blue Bell or Bonnie Bell. French vanilla was my favorite.

We used to get it at a grocery store just off of the Fry Road turn off into the Nottingham subdivision.

Nice ride, by the way.

That's funny. One of my co-workers made the exact same switch from Explorer Sport to Tahoe. It's not quite as fast, but that's the only thing he misses.
