    Major tire issue I have a huge chunk of tread missing around the inside of my front tire on the passenger side. The car is unsafe to drive in this condition. The dealership's opinion: "the tire is too wide and, when you turn, it is rubbing against a metal bracket that holds your break lines"...

    Just wondering if they make camber kits for '02 GLX? My car is lowered and I only have about 10000 miles on my tires and the insides are wore out!:banghead:

    Hello PW I have read through the reviews on the tires listed but didn't really see anything that I am looking for in a tire. My 2003 Passat (GLS 1.8T) is in the need of some new tires, the Continentals on her are showing there age (original tires?). What exactly am I looking for in a tire you...

    Well the BF Goodrich Traction T/A's that came on the car when I bought it used have finally given their all. After reading a lot here and at Tire Rack I have narrowed my choices down but would like some input from PW. Choice #1 - Michelin Pilot Exalto A/S as seen here at Tire Rack. Pro's -...

    Forgive me for being new to tire sizes but to my understanding, the greater the sidewall the more "plush" the ride will be (this is of course only one of many, many factors that affect ride quality as I understand). In the FAQ it appears the recommended tire size for 18" wheels is 225/40 but I...

    I have to replace my front passenger tire due to some sidewall damage to the tire. Since the vehicle is a 4 motion do I need to replace all 4 tires or can I replace just the front tires? The owner manual say to replace in pairs, but I know it's generic to all Passats. The rear tires have 6/32...

    FIRST QUESTION... Is the rear sway on an S4 thicker than the rear sway bar on my B5 '98 V6? I'm thinking yes, but I had to ask. I tried searching, but the search words were to broad. SECOND QUESTION... I just had a 17" tire replaced on my front left wheel. The tire was the same size...

    I killed my spare tire this past weekend and need another one. Any ideas from you guys where I might find one? The dealership wants $140 just for the tire, and that seems a bit high. It is a 125/70-18 tire from Continental. Thanks for the help - HOskister

    How often do you check pressure in your tires? I have noticed next things: When I dont check the tire pressure every month or even every three weeks I feel uncomfortable driving my car. Also if my car came back from any repair shop after repair I always feel that my tire pressures suck and also...

    I'm scratching my head a bit here. I'm looking for a 225/45/17 sized tire. My research has brought me to an impasse with the Continental's sport contact 3 Michelin PS2s at the top of my list. I'm not seeing the right keywords in reviews of the continentals and my memories of the CH95s that came...

    My dad has a Miata as his DD, which poses a problem when it snows after he's gone to work. I'm thinking of getting him some of those easy-on/easy-off tire chains (the ones that are really made of cables), but seeing how he's got a 45 mile drive every day, a couple of trips with the cheap ones...

    So I need to get some tire pressure sensors for my new rims. Where do you get them and how much? Also, is there anyone out there that has wrecked, crashed, or tore up there VW that would sell me their's? I think they are universial for VW, like jetta's will fit Passats and so on and so forth. Am...

    I want to buy some studded snows, and I live in a rural area, there are some 205/70/15's used that I would much rather buy, but my size is 195/65/15 on a 99 1.8t 5speed. Would these even fit? What would the effects of running this size be? Thanks for any help.

    Im going to replace the tires on my 2000 wagon soon most likely with a set of michelin exaltos as they seem like the best tire for the job. my question is on stock 15" wheels is there a performance upgrade going to 205-60s instead of 195-65s it seems like a small difference, also the 205-60s...

    It's time for me to buy a new set of Hakka's...but I have a question. I was going to buy the 205/55/16's since that's what I'm replacing on my winter wheels, but my guy can sell me the same tire (Hakka 2) in the 225/50/16 size and I'd save $70 on each tire ($280 total). I know that narrower...
