    I have a 17 Passat 1.8 SE Tsi and would like to know what would be a good set of either all season or winter tires. The Hankook Kinergry tires are pretty noisy and have terrible snow reviews. I have only had the car for 7 months now and have not yet experienced these tires in the snow. My old...

    So, I just ordered a set of 4 new Pirelli P7 Cinturato All-Season Plus tires in size 225/45R17H to replace the ones I've had for the last ~3 years. I run Nokian WR-G2's in the winter months so strictly a 3-season tire for me. I got probably around ~45k or so out of the last set which is fine...

    The winter season is almost finished and it's the right time to think about new all-season or summer performance tire. And here are two simple reasons for that: 1. Improved handling - summer/performance tires will perform much better in warm and dry conditions. 2. Less wear & tear of your...

    The Audi Car Club Chicago Chapter first autoX of the season is next Saturday at The Tire Rack test track. My Passat winter build is NOT DONE! :cry: I just registered my 2000 Grand Cherokee. I guess I've finally made the jump to AWD, but not the normal way. :rolleyes: It'll still be fun and a...

    New for 2012, Yokohama released its Ascend all-season touring tire that integrates oil taken from orange peels to reduce environmental impact and earth a BluEarth designation. Thanks to the orange oil, the tire is also more durable and reduces rolling resistance to improve fuel consumption. That...

    After countless hours of sanding and polishing, the Pegasus are on the car. I told my self I would never rebuild another set of splits after the Sterns but that didn't happen. I hate the process but the outcome is so rewarding! Hope everyone enjoys. Still have some tweaking to do. First off...

    I'm looking at getting news tires for my 2007 Passat Wagon. What are some very good mud and snow rated all season tires with extremely long tread life?

    This morning it was about 10F/-12C, the first sort of cold day of the year. No problems, but my oil cooler gasket finally gave up the ghost as I entered the parking lot at work -- flashing oil light, dinging bell, a steady stream of oil showing where I went and a big puddle of oil forming up...

    What are people's experience? I'm not finding very many options in the 235/45/17 tire size!!! I live in Colorado and go up skiing every weekend. Looking for something that can reasonably handle the snow. :barmy:

    Hi Recently I've been having these problems. When I start it, the starter motor seems to work fine, but sometimes it takes 2-3 tries (few seconds for each try), and only then the car starts. Sometimes, after 2-3 tries, the car starts, but with the ABS and ESP fail indicatiors on. Then, I shut...
