    Prinx HI City A/S

    Just picked up a 2010 Toyota Corolla LE for my son to use to commute to college. The car is in good shape and has been well taken care of. My only question is has 4 brand new 205/55/16 Prinx Hi City A/S tires. I realize that these tires are far from the best, but how bad are they?

    Cooper Endeavor & Endeavor Plus

    Just noticed that Cooper released a couple of new tires the Endeavor (Car/Minivan) and Endeavor Plus (SUV/Truck). Our Subaru Legacy needs new tires and I have run CS5's, Evolutions, and True North on some of my other cars so I will definitely be checking out the Endeavors before I pull the...

    Stained wheels

    Just picked up a Toyota RAV4 Sport, was able to clean up the paint and it looks great (clay, polish, sealed). However the wheels are stained from brake dust, tried my usual wheel cleaner and tried Sonax but no luck. Any suggestions?

    Replacement for General Altimax RT-43

    I have the RT-43’s on two out of my three cars and one of them is due for a tire replacement (225/45/18 V) in the very near future. The General’s have been a great bang for the buck tire and perform decently in most instances. My question is are they still the go-to tire since they have been...

    Instead of borrowing friends and relatives chainsaws I was thinking of picking up a small saw for limbing and cleanup around the yard. Saw the other day on the HD website that they have reconditioned saws starting at $69.97...

    Toyota Sienna Tires

    Just starting to look for new tires for our 2015 Sienna LE (FWD) Minivan (235/60/17). The OEM Firestone 710 tires are shot after 27,000 miles and they were not even on the car the entire time as we run snow tires on separate set of wheels in the winter. So I am guessing we got like 20,000...

    Brakes for 2012 Subaru Legacy

    The brakes on my 2012 Subaru Legacy Premium (2.5i) are starting to squeak a little bit and I am getting some shake when I slow down coming off the highway. Sounds like new brakes are in the future for me, not surprised after 4+ years of mostly around town driving. Anyhow, if I am going to...

    Starting to shop for new tires for my Subie

    I have been wanting to replace the tires on my 2012 Subaru Legacy for a while, but couldn’t bring myself to ditch the OEM Bridgestone Turanza’s. They now have 30,000 miles and look to be only half worn, but I can’t live through another snow or even rain storm with them. Hope to find a good...
