    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.

    Tire Vibration When Tire Warms 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...

    This one seems solid, but it costs as much as my car: https://www.roomandboard.com/catalog/bedroom/beds/mackintosh-low-footboard-bed

    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...

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    I want the SE springs because they should be firmer (+2mm wire diam) and therefore better at supporting a loaded trunk/car to my mind. May have to reconsider. I don't expect rust to be an issue. The Sachs have 23k miles on them. Did you get a Buick or minivan? I saw a post by Capriracer at some...

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    I put Sachs on the front about 20 months ago. The rear has Gabriel, about 100k on them now, starting to be useless. Might upgrade to SE springs on the rear when I change them. Indeed, the selection for 205/65-R15 is by far the best. How's the ride on those GY Efficient grip? I typically don't...

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    The Corolla in my sig has the CS5 GT. They've been good. If I were to nitpick, it would be that they developed some superficial cracks at the edges after 4 years of service. I see they have a $50 rebate at DT. Might go for them. They don't come in 215/65-R15. That's what's nice about the...

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    Thanks Char Baby! The Cooper CS5 Grand Touring seemed pretty soft too, did anyone compare it to the above?

    Soft sidewall tires in 2020

    Thinking of buying new tires for the Maxima to prepare for the upcoming damp season. The Falken Sincera SN211 on there now have become too hard, and lose traction braking harder in the dry, and easily in the wet. I had some scares, don't want to crash the car. They still have thread after about...
