    Differences in Akebono ProAct Brake Pads? Chime in

    In all of the applications where I have used them, they seemed to have less bite than OEM pads. Smooth braking but require more effort to stop the vehicle.

    1990's Kubota G2000 HST Lawn Tractor with 48" mower deck

    He’s got a truck and trailer. I don’t really want to be that guy with him. He’s leaving us a lot of good stuff with the house without charging us anything. I was the one that inquired about the tractor.

    Hey Guys! I am being offered the above tractor for $1,500. Everything seems to be in working condition and comes with an additional front snow plow, tire chains and rear tire weights in addition to the 48” mower deck. I didn't get the exact year off of the engine so not sure about the exact...

    2003 Lexus ES300 Battery change. Range, compass and Radio now different

    Battery should make no difference to any of these things except for perhaps re-recalibrating the auto up/down window switch and auto moonroof open and close feature. This may not even be the case on a Toyota/ Lexus product. I may be wrong, but perhaps someone connected jumper cables...

    Should I buy a "B" Temperature tire for 2016 Pilot?

    I’ve had these tires in the “T” rating on a 2015 MDX which is very similar to your car with a bit more sportier driving dynamic and they were great; Quiet, smooth and performed well in all weather conditions. The “T” rated tire is a bit softer and has a longer treadlife warranty Which will...

    Chunks of tread coming off Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS RFT Tires

    Vehicle was bought pre-owned with 2x,xxxx miles on it. I'm thinking the owner did drive on some type of gravel road and damaged the tire. Any worry about the safety of the tire? The cuts aren't all the way through. Seems to be fine on the highway with no apparent vibration. I plan to...

    Can this split in the seam be fixed on this Mercedes seat?

    After digging online, looks like this a typical Mercedes Benz issue. The seam is split in half. I know the seat can be re-upholstered by a shop but I'm curious to see if anyone had had anything like this fixed by stitching the seam back together to avoid re-upholstering the entire seat and/or...

    Chunks of tread coming off Bridgestone Potenza RE97AS RFT Tires

    Hi folks, Wondering if anyone can diagnose this issue. These are the horrid OEM Run-Flat tires on my vehicle that I've noticed pieces of tread coming off of. I'm curious if a tire shop can take care of this issue as a warranty claim or if anyone has seen anything like this. I'm attaching...

    Advics OE Advantage Brake Pads

    Does anyone have experience with these? Perform well? Oem equivalent? Looks like they are oem equivalents and may actually be the same as oem for a 2014 Acura MDX application I would use these on. One thing I saw when looking inside the box is that they don't come with shims. Should I...
