New Shoes
If you drive a heavy-duty truck, you've got a new choice in tires. Nitto has developed the Terra Grappler All Terrain tire, the company's first light-truck/SUV tires to be offered in load-range ratings of D or E. Fit with a grippy computer-designed tread, these tires are available in 31x10.5, 31x11, 33x11, 33x11.5, 33x12, 33x13, 35x12.5, 35x13 and 37x14. Information: Nitto Tire, Dept.

Dialed-In Diesel
Max out your Chevy Duramax with the new EZ Amp performance module from BD Power. The kit installs between your rig's master wiring harness and ECU. The EZ Amp then is said to improve performance by increasing the time and duration of the injection of fuel to each cylinder compared to the ECU's stock commands. According to the manufacturer, the EZ Amp doesn't affect stock fuel pressure or engine noise levels. Information: BD Power, Dept. FW, Box 231, Sumas, WA 98295,
