    MODS: I don't know if I'm allowed to post anything this long. If there's a problem, notify me/remove the thread instead of just giving me that red box. I wouldn't think that posting a long thread would hurt the servers much, as this is purely text, and much less in size than even a single image...

    Does anyone know what the axles load weights would be (indicated by max load in kg) for the front and rear of a 2001-2005 1.8T 4motion sedan with tiptronic? I'm trying to find an Eibach Prokit from Europe (since they are non available here for 4motion), unfortunately they do not have the 1.8T...

    The manual for my 30v V6 says 5w40 is suitable for regular use, 5w30 for topping off. Then there is an insert stating that 5w30 can be used regularly. Considering our cold climate (VT) which is a better choice? Should I use one in winter, one in summer? TIA Neil

    Hi, all the cars that I've owned had the weights attached to the edge of the outer rim, but in my Passat, it seems to be stuck inside the rim. If I take my car to an independent dealer, will they just attach the weights to the edge of the rim? Sorry, if this seems like a stupid question.

    Clay, The Tirerack website doesn't list weights for the OZ Superturismo GT (17x7.5) and the Sport Edition Fox 5 (also 17x7.5). Any chance someone there could put them on a scale and publish the weights?

    Does anyone know of a website where you can find out about tire (NOT wheel) weights? I thought I had read something somewhere, but I really can't find anything now (tried google and searches on honda-tech & the vortex). I'm also aware of the info on the edgeracing website, and the link on...

    Maybe this should be in the Wheels and Tires forum, but I don't want replace anything, so maybe General Forum is right. Moderators, you decide. Okay, so last week I'm getting the car ('03 Variant GLS in Reflex Silver) ready for the long weekend and a road trip to Canada. I used Einszett...

    Also curious about the Stilauto 5+5, and the MM Evo 5 is pretty sweet too. Don't see weights for these wheels anywhere. Due to a recent theft I am pricing 16, possibly 17" wheels for my '02 Passat GLS. Will most likely be ordering by early next week. anyone have resources that can find out...
