    What does this wear mean?

    Sorry the pictures weren't helpful enough guys, I assumed that the extra wear on the edges of the treads would be telling enough. Regardless, I just got a call back from the service department and they said they rotated the tires and also checked the alignment but apparently it wasn't necessary...

    Can I safely go down a "tick" in aspect ratio?

    I've been tasked with finding good replacement tires for a family member's late-90s minivan. The tires it takes are <span style="font-weight: bold">P205/75R14</span>. However, unfortunately it seems to be an uncommon tire size these days so there are only a few tires out there to choose from: on...

    SLIP2000 MSDS

    Sorry for the bump, but thanks for posting the MSDS. One thing I'm curious about is the fact that they market this and talk about it in the MSDS as being non-toxic and non-hazardous. I see that it contains some sort of benzene-related chemical (Benzene, mono-C10-12-alkyl derivs., fractionation...

    Filter imperfections.

    I ordered a Mopar 68191349AA / M0-349 filter for my 2014 Jeep GC on eBay from an authorized Jeep dealer a few days ago and got it in the mail today.

    OP, I don't have a CRV but I just bought a 5qt. jug of Quaker State Ultimate Durability at Walmart for my 2014 vehicle for a little over $20 because QS has a $20 rebate available on their website. That and QSUD seems to be pretty highly regarded as a "sleeper" oil here, and based on this test it...

    Does oxygen exposure shorten oil's shelf life?

    I accidentally broke the seal on a 5qt container of oil I bought today and I don't plan on changing the oil for several weeks. I wondered to myself if that might have any effect on the oil. I thought about it some more and realized that doesn't really make sense. But I still wonder enough to ask...
