    Why isn't the General Altimax RT43 3PMSF rated?

    I always wondered how those steep streets would be handled if it snowed in SF. Still rooting for the event :)

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    I had the CS5 Ultras installed almost 2 weeks ago. They flat spot (94H). Took them on a roadtrip to Oregon, even though I have a slight shimmy above 75mph, coming and going after turns (perfect storm on getting the tires non-uniformity in sync I imagine). Never lost grip in the wet. They suck in...

    What date range tires can I accept?

    I returned the walmart ones and got them from DT. I got 4018 dated tires this time :(. Both sets had come from a Fresno warehouse. Ended up installing as I had a trip lined up.

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    I was considering the Sumitomo HTR A/S P02, but I had read opinions on this website that the Sumitomo harden and lose wet grip after about 15K; the Falken (I think a Sumitomo brand) I have certainly behaved in this manner. I was also looking at the Avid Ascend GT, but they seemed stiff...

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    Thanks for the tip about RT43. The radiator support is fine, the very little rust that the car has is superficial.

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    Actually on my GXE the sticker says 92S, it's probably one of the speed limited ones. OE tire pressure is indeed 29 psi, I stay within 2-3 psi above or bellow depending on circumstances. The Falkens were a bit softer when new, but still had a stiffer sidewall. The General Altimax RT43 seems to...
