    Hello! Yesterday I performed an oil change and tire rotation on my 2014 Optima EX. I have done this many times and have not had any problems in the past. I took the car for a quick drive after I rotated the tires and everything seemed fine. This morning, as I left the house/went down my...

    Last Wednesday night I removed a tire from my 15 Optima t have it replaced. It had a puncture in the sidewall, but the tires have over 2/3 of their life left so I decided to replace just the one tire with the exact same type. On Thursday I brought the tire to TownFair and had it replaced. I...

    Cooler weather is beginning to move in, and your tire pressures will drop with the temperatures. Your TPMS is probably set for something like 27 psi before it alerts you, so you could be running around with your tires down 4 or 5 psi and not know it. I'm anal about tire pressure, so I check...

    What tire pressure do you guys run for 20" wheels? Do you stick with 35 psi (factory 18"), or higher to prevent bend on wheels? Pease advise.

    The Optima calls for 34 psi all around. For me, that made my SXL a little jittery on neighborhood roads. Since I'm accustomed to running 32 psi in my cars' tires, I adjusted my Optima's pressures down to 32. Now, you might not think 2 psi would make much of a difference, but it does ... my car...

    Has anyone had a scraping noise coming from your tire that goes with the revolution of the tire? I can jack the car up and spin the tire, and it'll make the same scraping noise at the same spot all the time. It's a 2012 lx 2.4 with only 23500 miles. The rotors in the front don't look grooved...

    Hi Guys, I have a 2013 SX-T with just under 25K miles on it. The original Nexen CP tires like so many others I have read about here on the forum are just about toast. There is nothing about them that I like. Noisy, lousy traction in wet weather, etc. So the good news is that I'm about...

    Hi all, Im looking at buying a '15 Optima LX. Looks like the stock tire size is 16 inch? Can I go to an 18 inch aftermarket rim/tire without issue? I want summer tires/aftermarket rims for warm months. Winter tires on stock rims for cold months. Thanks.

    Just installed wheels with winter tires for the first time and wondering if the noise they make is normal. They are used, but low miles. Drove them over 60mph and they don't vibrate or pull the car. Also, the rear are 5 mm larger if that makes any difference. I have similar noise towards the end...
