Hi all, newbie from Michigan here.

The lease on my 07 Escalade is up in a few months and i have narrowed down my new vehicle to a slightly used 2009 SS.

I have had large SUVs (99 Tahoe, 01 Tahoe, 07 Escalade) for quite some time, and am ready for a car again as a daily driver. I have admired the latest SS since they came out in 06. Although I am new to this forum, I am pretty active on the cadillacowners.com forum, as my other current vehicles are also Cadillacs. Basically, nothing but Chevys and Cadillacs for me. That has something to do with living in GM country (Lansing/East Lansing, MI)!

I hope to be able to contribute and also gather some useful information prior to my purchase this Summer. At a minimum, I hope to get some suggestions for winter wheels/tires. We get a lot of snow and ice. Since I am losing my AWD, I am pretty sure I will want some dedicted snow tires on smaller rims.

Looking forward to changing from a wannabe to an owner soon!

His dog ran away and didn't come back for a few hours on the first fire up too. It was awesome.

When babies cry and animals flee, you know you did something right Laughing
