    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?

    I recently put a set of 18 inch wheels with these tires on my Passat and was wondering if anyone else has had them and what your opinion and observations on them would be? Things like comfort, wet/dry traction and even snow, and treadwear. These are my first set of wide, low 18 inch tires and so...

    These have 90% tread remaining. The fourth was victim to road debri, something I managed to swerve around with the rear tire, but the front passenger side ate it. My plan is to run a dedicated winter setup for snow and summer extreme/max performance during warmer seasons. Therefore, I have no...

    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.
