    Replacement tire problems

    @GT@50 I don't buy it. About all I could imagine happening would be an ABS light if tire stagger front to rear was too large. There's no traction control so the engine would keep running fine. The computer doesn't know what gear you're in so a fault related to RPM vs MPH wouldn't be possible. If...

    Replacement tire problems

    I don't know, but the engine wouldn't have been very hot. I had only driven a few gentle miles before experiencing it. The first time I tried it, I was probably in 3rd gear when I hit 70 (merging onto an on ramp). The second time I tried it, I was gently passing on a highway, probably in 5th...

    Replacement tire problems

    In May 2022, my Ford dealer told me I needed to replace my tires in order to meet inspection. Since the original tires aren't around anymore, they suggested Eagle F1's as a replacement. These have a smaller sidewall than the original tires, but they thought they would work. After they put on...

    Bill, I'm heading down around 3:30 on Tuesday. If you're anywhere near the PA/DE border around then, we can try to hook up.

    changing exhaust - difficulty level DIY ??

    You'll have a little more wiggle room if you loosen the bolts that hold up the transaxle. You can support it from underneath, but letting it drop a little gave us just enough room to thread in the new pipes.

    Goodyear has forsaken us

    I've got 13k on the front and had about 11k on the rear before replacing them. Clearly I'm not driving her hard enough.

    AR-15 prices

    We put the Eotech that far forward because there's a possibility that we might put a magnifier between it and the stock. The primary reason I got the holographic sight is because my older son has trouble closing his left eye and I was told that you could shoot with both eyes open using the...
