    Duralast Platinum made by Odyssey

    Working great so far, that 1250 pulse hot cranking amps really winds that starter up! They are $199 like the rest of the Platinum lineup and it's easy to get a $10 off coupon if you just add one to the cart overnight so they send you an email coupon. I only saw 2 on the shelf in the in the...

    Duralast Platinum made by Odyssey

    Was looking for a new Group 48/H6 after my 2nd Die Hard JCI AGM bit the dust. Didn't want to buy another JCI AGM that everyone is selling with a different sticker on it. Walked into Autozone to check out the Odyssey and found this, an Odyssey in a black case that says Duralast Platinum for $60...

    Michelin Premier LTX Different Tread

    Agreed the original LTX MS and MS/2 were the best tires ever. We ran the originals over 100k on a Mazda Tribute and they would have gone further if we hadn't slacked off on the rotations at 80k miles. Sold the Mazda with the MS/2 on it and they still looked great after 60k. Looks like it will...

    Michelin Premier LTX Different Tread

    2004 MDX looking for some new shoes. Currently running Continental LX20 that have started to hydroplane now that they have around 45k on them. Always used to run Michelins on everything but these LX20's were far better than the Latitude Tours it had before. Tried the Yokohama YK-HTX and took...

    Does anyone have any problems with discount tire?

    I had them swap out some Yokohamas for Michelins after I put about 1000 miles on the Yokohamas. They didn't even hesitate when I asked for an exchange.

    Losing Faith...

    I would skip the store management and go straight to corporate with this issue. They obviously have an employee who is a stale leftover of the occupy Wall st movement bent on destroying the 1%. Explain to them how this could have caused severe damage to this wonderful example of teutonic...

    Pennzoil Ultra on closeout, is it worth hoarding?

    Must be a regional thing, the Maxlife Full Syn is finally on the shelves at Walmarts around here, meanwhile the Ultra sits on the closeout shelves for $21 and still nobody is buying. It seems like Castrol Edge Titanium even outsold the Ultra here, and even that is being closed out. I wonder if...

    Pennzoil Ultra on closeout, is it worth hoarding?

    Right now they are clearing out the SN Ultra $21 for the 5qt and $5 for the quarts. If you look closely at the price tag it shows how many weeks it has been on clearance, 5 & 6 weeks in this case. I know other people have said that it eventually drops to $10 and $2.50. I wonder how many weeks...

    Pennzoil Ultra on closeout, is it worth hoarding?

    All the Walmarts are blowing out the Pennzoil Ultra, is this stuff worth stocking up on or not? Seems that the excitement people had about it 2 years ago has faded. Just got an excellent 2004 Acura MDX with only 92k on it and I'm thinking about running the 5W-20 Ultra.

    Castrol SLX professional?

    This is the Canadian stuff they marketed to Corvette owners to meet the GM4718 spec. Not too long after, Castrol Edge 5W-30 jimmy the dipstick commercials started showing up in the US. Same stuff. Good stuff.

    0w20? Trying something different this winter

    It doesn't get cold enough in Illinois to worry about the difference between a 5w-20 and 0w-20. Your Walmart has Edge 0W-20?

    Fram Extended Guard *cut open* (unused)

    This filter fits the pricing structure of Walmart perfectly. They needed to carry a 10,000 mile filter to match the Castrol Edge and Mobil 1 EP offerings. The same crowd that buys their 5 quart jugs at Walmart is looking for a high mileage filter priced 30% less than a Mobil 1 at any of the...
