    I never liked the steel wheels which came stock on this van but being a cheap SOB I couldn't stomach buying aftermarket wheels.
    This winter I came across a deal on some 2013 Tahoe wheels which I always kind of liked. They received the requisite black plasti dip.
    Like I say cheap SOB.
    The new used wheels were wrapped in a fresh set of Cooper ATP's. The previous set had just over 50k miles on them and though they still had tread left in some spots they were down to the wear bars. So it was time.
    For those curious the plati dip on the stock wheels also had the same 50k on it and looked good as new. Just one touch up in that time.

    Since lifting the van I have been running a set of cheap rough country shocks which came with the kit. I knew they wouldn't be fantastic but I figured I would give them a try. Well 3 years and 50k miles later they were starting to feel pretty bouncy.
    Time for an upgrade

    Old versus new

    The passenger side shock still seemed like it was in OK shape but the driver side was definitely clapped out.
