There's not rubbing anywhere, but the fronts are about 3/8"-1/2" from the control arm. A test drive shows no rubbing but it still scares me. Is it ok to drive like this? Also...

    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...

Curious about how much actual difference this would make I fired up Torque on my Android tablet and went for a drive. At a steady 75mph on the...
