    Chevron Supreme API SN Plus vs API SN

    SP formula. No problem. Still tastes good. About $1.33/qt after everything said and done since the order got replaced for free due to shipping/leaking issues. Ended up getting 6 extra jugs for free, and 3 free jugs of Rotella too...

    Chevron Supreme API SN Plus vs API SN

    On their site, if you order the 3, 6, 9, 12 pack of 5qt 5w30, the picture of the jug showed SN oil. If you buy individually, it showed the newer SP formula. I ordered the last/one of the last 12 packs of it ( $9.95-$9.99). When I checked it today, all gone (except individual). Hopefully the...

    Should this tire be ok?

    Yea, they did NOT see any debris in the tire. That's why they didn't refuse repair. They would not have touched it otherwise. I was actually there to purchase 5 new tires for another car and had this tire in that cars truck to have them patch it as well (kill 2 birds/1 stone), so in terms of...

    Should this tire be ok?

    Sorry for all the pictures. My phone sucks. And I figured by cleaning it everything would come out better. I think I'll put it on. And drive to the shop and get a new tire. Since driving too far on small spare is bad on car. Thank you all for the opinions. Not $$ issue, more safety/value...

    Should this tire be ok?

    Final Pics. I went ahead and washed the tire so pics show areas better. There is one spot (my fingernail--same as pic 7 below) that does raise some alarms.

    Should this tire be ok?

    The tire shop, without naming them is a very very much trusted shop. Basically when they told me, I reiterated what they said as basically not like a red flag, not a green flag, but more a yellow flag, and said that was a good analogy. And they were kinda in the same position of repair/replace...

    Should this tire be ok?

    I appreciate all the opinions on this. I keep going back and forth on it. What I may do is find another of same exact rim, and get new tire for it, and keep this tire/rim as a full size spare in trunk. I actually like having 2 spares in the truck (the crappy small spare and a full size spare)...

    Should this tire be ok?

    Ran over a nail, and I didn't realize it until the back end started to sway a little and I pulled off and the driver rear was flat. Took to tire shop and they advised there was no internal rubber pieces inside (internal chaffing) that's usually caused by driving on a flat, so that's good. They...

    Can I use this grease for brake maintenance?

    What if the grease was new or less than 5 years old? I have a tub of this stuff and have used it for packing Wheel Bearings, Disc Brakes (caliper slider pins, back of pads, hardware/pad slide-friction areas (edges/ears, etc.), Drum Brakes (Shoe to Plate contact areas), parking break cable/pulley...
