I was hoping someone here would be kind enough to point me in the right direction with a recommendation. I live in the North Hills area (McCandless) but would be willing to travel to somewhere fairly close.

Thanks!

Hey just wanted to warn those of us in the Pittsburgh area. I had a clutch issue with my car last week. 2 or 3 times in the last month my clutch pedal did not come all the way up the first time I hit it in the morning. But lifted it up with my foot and did not have any issues. Tuesday evening last week, the clutch more or less went out. Couldn't change gear without shutting the car off. would not engage any gears while running. Sure signs of lack of hydraulic pressure to pressure plate which wouldn't let the clutch release and allow me to shift. I have access to the GM service site, and found a service bulletin relating to exactly my problem. Bulletin says to replaced clutch pedal assembly. Which contains the actual master cylinder for the clutch system. It uses same reservoir as your brake system for the fluid supply. I had no leaks, system had no air. So I called Watson Chevrolet in Murrysville (Where I bought the vehicle) to schedule the tow and repairs. After a 3 day run around and call to GM Customer Service.. I got nowhere. They wanted to charge me 2300 bux for a new clutch (which is not the immediate issue, hopefully there isn't any significant damage to my clutch from the failing pedal). and not honor the service bulletin.

Long story short I had it towed to another dealer who would deal with the problem properly. Hoping to have it back mid week.

Stay away from Watson Chevrolet. I don't believe they have many quality techs and really could care less about their customers.

GM bulletins are intended for use by professional technicians, NOT a "do-it-yourselfer". They are written to inform these technicians of conditions that may occur on some vehicles, or to provide information that could assist in the proper service of a vehicle. Properly trained technicians have the equipment, tools, safety instructions, and know-how to do a job properly and safely. If a condition is described, DO NOT assume that the bulletin applies to your vehicle, or that your vehicle will have that condition. See your GM dealer for information on whether your vehicle may benefit from the information.

I have 4, 19' Black Bremmerkraft BR09 wheels, black with a polished lip, with 4 235/55/19 Blizzak snow tires on them for sale. My car was an 2010 with the RS package and they cleared the old 'skate brakes' but I removed them anyhow just to make sure, but should fit no problem on any car since that doesn't have those specific pads.
They do have TPMS in them as well.

Tires are good, basically saw 2 winters but I can get a tread depth for each if anyone is interested. And can get more pictures as well.
