    2013 Honda Ridgeline-Oil choices, paralysis by analysis

    Looking for some direction for my next oil change on my 2013 Honda Ridgeline. Has about 92,000 miles, is used mostly from December-March/April depending on how winter is here in Central PA. I don't use it as much in the summer unless I am mtn. biking, kayaking or towing (mostly my Kubota Bx...

    Adirondack Vacation

    Inked, my friends father owns a cabin right in Port Kent, close to Plattsburg. There are a lot of good brewpubs around if thats your thing. Also a fun idea is to take the ferry over to Burlington, crossing Lake Champlain is fun on its own, and you can have all day to explore Burlington. You can...

    Altimax 365aw First Hand Experiences?

    Thanks for that, I don’t have access to any consumer reports stuff. The few small first hand reports don't realLu complain about wet traction like Tire Rack does…

    Altimax 365aw First Hand Experiences?

    The_Eric, I’ve looked into the Hankook too, but that’s a very hard one to find any info about other than some euro videos on YouTube, some not in English. From what I can discern about the Hankook it seems like it’s been in the euro market for a couple years, so it’s tech and compound might be a...

    Altimax 365aw First Hand Experiences?

    Hello all, Ive been preemptively looking for a set of tires for my wife’s new car, we live in Central Pa and I have experience using Nokian WRG 3&4. Her AWD Vibe had WRG4’s on it now, and I would probably not buy them for her new car based solely on how noisy they are on the highway (I...

    Buick Regal Tour X Questions…

    Ill probably be looking over this "dinosaur" next week, looks like problem areas are rear diff, water leaking into the spare tire compartment, check for a bad battery by introducing heavy load on it, and to make sure the pano sunroof isn't leaking and the sun shade works correctly. Not...

    Buick Regal Tour X Questions…

    Havent updated this thread for a bit, but we did just find a Tour X Essence with 43000 miles on it that is looking like it may be coming home with us next week. Regarding the DI engine. Ive been lucky (unlucky)? enough to not have to deal with one yet in my life. First thing would be use the...

    Buick Regal Tour X Questions…

    Looking at one of these as an upgrade to my wifes 2009 Pontiac Vibe (Matrix) AWD. Need something with more room and I’ve always steered her to what I know, Honda Passport being my #1 choice since I’ve own a first gen Ridgeline for years now. My problem is I know almost nothing about GM cars. The...

    Honda Ridgeline Tire Seletion

    I have the same truck, same year, live in pa, run Nokian Hakkas in the winter, and also thought the stock hankooks were awful in every situation. Replaced them with the Terrain Contact AT, ran them for a few thousand miles and then sold them and bought the staple Michelin Defender. I sold the...

    Honda Ridgeline Tire Seletion

    Hello, Currently shopping for new tires for my 2013 Ridgeline, size 245/60 18”. Came stock with Hankook Dynapro HP2. While decently quiet and they seem to have low rolling resistance, their wet traction is terrible. As a little background, I do run a dedicated set of winter tires (Nokian Hakka...

    Honda Ridgeline Tire Recommendation

    After many hours of research, I believe I found the tire I've been searching for. After running some Nokian Hakka's SUV's on my departed Subaru, I checked out nokian's website and I decided that the WRG3 SUV would be perfect. Carries the mountain/snowflake symbol, can be run year round and...

    Honda Ridgeline Tire Recommendation

    Thanks for the replies, it seems like Michelin updated the LTX series and some people aren't crazy about the changes. The Cooper HTP's seem to fit my needs with pretty good winter ratings, but I have no clue how old that tread design is. Also being a 245/60 18" tire seems to narrow my choices...

    Honda Ridgeline Tire Recommendation

    Hello, I am currently looking to buy a used Honda Ridgeline to replace my totaled Outback 3.6r. I have always ran summer or high performance all season and then switched to winter tires for winters here in PA. I do not plan on buying another dedicated set of rims and winter tires for the...

    Any cars you feel "Need More Tire?"

    I would have to say one of the most famous that I can remember was the late 90's Acura Integra Type R. I believe those things rode on 195/50 15", horribly under-tired for what it was.

    New Yokohama Ice Guard iG52c

    I have not checked with Tire Rack yet but I plan to. As for LRR in a winter tire im a believer as the Michelin Xice Xi3 is usually placed at the top or right near the top in all winter tire tests and it is an LRR tire.

    New Yokohama Ice Guard iG52c

    Hello, I have been looking for winter tires for my suby and I was pretty well set on Michelin X Ice since they are considerd LRR. Tire Rack and Michelin themselves have either a 50 or 70$ MIR but they are out of stock until the end of October and the current rebate expires at the end of Sept...

    Winter Tire Question to Nokian or not?

    Thanks everyone, I think im going to hold off for now and see if tire rack ends up getting the Xi3's in my size, if not then ill probably go for the Hakkas. Its not that I didnt like my WS-60s, but if these 70s arent considered LRR and still have soft sidewalls id rather go with something that...

    Winter Tire Question to Nokian or not?

    Hello, I recently purchased a 2011 Outback 3.6r and i've been shopping around to get ready to order some winter tires and rims for it. In years past I have ran Blizzack WS-60 on my Volvo and they always seemed to preform well but had very squirmy feeling sidewalls. I have been looking into...
