    I have spent $200 and been to two VW dealers trying to figure out a vibration that I can feel in my seat and steering wheel. I can also hear the vibration some what loudly. Both shops have said that they believe I have a couple of cupped tires. I bought my Bridgstone Potenza G009's from Tire...

    I'm too lazy to swap wheels so a good A/S is the choice. I am looking at these on stock 16's with 4 mo. I would say it is for typical street commuter style driving but the wife generally drives it so spirited is probably a more accurate description. Anyone got an opinion?

    Switched from the Turanza LS-H to the Potenza G009. . Better Looks, Treadwear has been good, Quiet (no audible difference), Lower Price and for the handling - well I just can't tell the difference. . Running 205/55/16 Borbet CA - 1.8T Manual . My recommendation for the average joe.

    Well, a bit off top, since it's for another car, 2003 C320, not Passat. I thought I'd ask anyway. Ireally need new set of tires for that Merc. I have Potenza 950 on it now, Very disappointed. Very fast wear and rapid drop in performance with wear. I mean VERY rapid. Now, I am looking at few...

    Well I'm in the market for some good performing All-Seasons as I'm moving to snow country in a few weeks and these Bridgestones are up at the top of the chart on Tirerack right now so I thought I'd check and see if anyone else has gotten them or checked them out. :thumbup:

    to clay or anyone who can help when i put on my summer sets a week ago (17" Superleggeras on Bridgestone RE750s), i had a grinding noise and a whump-whump-whump noise (linear to wheel rotation) i thought both were caused by the wheel bearing, which i had replaced by and independent euro shop for...
