  1. Update On My New Yokohama Tires

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    Howdy all. Just thought I would give a quick update on the new Yokohama ADVAN S4 tires. I now have about 4000 miles on them. I LOVE 'EM.. :) They are "V" rated with Traction "AA" and Temp "A" Remember that they are the low profile 245x50x18 inch tires. There is not much sidewall to absorb...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 1999 - 2006
    I'm in the process of blacking out my truck...just finished getting the wheels done. Just have these three things left. Someone said that the end caps just pop off of both ends to reveal the bolts to remove the roof racks. I pulled a little but didnt want to brake anything...is it safe to...

    So like any good car manufacturer, I recalled it :D I shall refrain from assimilation and constant title changes in the hope that the accelerator does not stick on this one.
  5. Chrome Door Handles are Chipping

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Help! I just noticed that the chrome on the right rear exterior door handle is beginning to chip or flake off. It is small, so I don't know if I should wait until it gets worse or go ahead and request the dealer to replace the door handle since it is still under the factory warranty, (the...
  6. My oh sh!t handles fell off

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    My rear handles, the ones that help you get in and out of the car, you can hang your drycleaning on...they just fell off. I turned a corner and my son said...ow mommy the car hit me. The handle was in his lap. Strange I thought, I scolded him for hanging on it or using it at all. Two weeks...

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    I have had to replace 2 door handles and just found a third one defective. They pull loose from the door at the front edge of the handle. Has anyone else had this problem and has GM done anything about it?....thanks

    New member here, thought I would post some pics of the cargo handles I has chromed. Chroming plastic is kinda spendy, but couldn't help myself ;)
  12. Can Chrome door handles off 08 fit my 05 STS ?

    Cadillac STS Forum 2005 through 2012
    Hey all I like the chrome door handles on the 08. Does anyone know for sure if they can be swapped or not? I asked my Cadillac servoce tech and she said no, but really wonder how hard she tried to get an answer?? Let me know. Jerry PS My subwoofer project is still moving along. I keep...
  13. Southern ESV handles snow very well!!!!

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    We had 7 inches of snow in Harris County Georgia on sunday, It was unreal!!! I went out in the ESV and found that I could go anywhere I wanted to go. The front air damn was pushing the snow and it would keep going without spinning. I saw alot of folks stuck with FWD cars and my old ESV kept on...
  14. Billet door locks and v radio knobs group buy

    2004-2007 Cadillac CTS-V Appearance Mods
    So there is a guy on ebay selling what look to be very good quality door locks and radio knobs. I asked him about discounted price on volume. So who is interested? Sorry, but he didn't tell me how much he was expecting but I think he is reasonable.
  15. Bought Chrome door handles

    Cadillac DTS Forum 2006 through 2011
    from US Speed. Thought about the chrome fender ports and rejected the idea. I want it to be subtle and I think that might push it over the line. They shipped yesterday. Will do pix this coming weekend if they are acceptable upon receipt. Guys who have bot them for the CTS say they are good...
  16. Chrome door handles

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Hi everyone!:wave: New member here..... so sorry if this has been brought up before. Has anyone found any aftermarket chrome door handles similar to the ones on the Escalade? Don't know why this wasn't a CTS option, especially with the chrome accents I have around the fog lights, etc. Thanks...
  17. 2008 Escalade EXT Door Handles Breaking

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    Well this weekend, while just opening the doors on my truck, both the driver side rear and the passenger side front door handles broke. It appears that there is the side where the handle actually pulls the hinge or whatever so that the door opens... that side was sturdy and fine, but the other...
  18. Door Pull Handles Peeling

    Cadillac CTS First Generation Forum - 2003 - 2007
    anyone have this problem? ive been to the dealership for it once already to get the originals replaced, and now these are the replacements in the video, look at how pathetic this is, they peel once they get a nick in them or anything, and then you can just rub your finger over them and that...
  19. Chrome Door Handles

    2008-2013 Cadillac CTS General Discussion
    Does anyone know where to get them from? I've seen sites with them for the last gen CTS but not 08 and beyond. I asked the dealer about it and he said it would be like $1,200 because of all the labor to switch out the handles. Do they make chrome door handle covers?
  20. Squeaky Door Handles?

    Cadillac Escalade, EXT and ESV Forum - 2007-2014
    i was wondering if anyone had an idea for a fix. 3 of 4 door handles on my truck squeak when they are pulled open, and I have to assume that they are rubbing on the stationary portion of the handle?...any ideas?
