  4. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    I almost don't care about handling.....if the new tires reduce noise in the car by at least 15 or 20 percent. The tires on it NOW are seemingly major contributors to cabin noise, and it's driving us crazy. Anybody here ever put General Alti-max's on? Any other "quiet contenders" in an all-season?

    Had the car for a year, been like this since we got it. Basically they all do different things. For example, volume down turns on Bluetooth voice control, track skip up is volume down, volume up is mute, etc. Done a little bit of searching and sounds like its just wiring issue. I've seen little...

  14. Wheels, Tires and Suspension
    Where do I find the size of my tire? How do I know what the speed rating is? These are just a couple of common questions we field from our customers and rightfully so. A tire's sidewall contains a plethora of markings with letters, numbers, and even codes. It's these alphanumeric markings...
