So Long, Sold, Leasing a PHEV

Well, five flawless years with my SE. Sold it to a friend. Leasing a 2018 Outlander PHEV. It is an amazing value, and I can see what Mitsu learned from the MiEV in it. (The brake lights come on during significant regen braking, for example. ) The PHEV has some overkill in the tech, but I can mostly ...

Re: 5 Year Ownership Review

"Humbling" and "unpretentious" yet "smugly satisfying"! With a collision-salvage battery pack in reserve and my original pack now reporting 37 Ah, this summer may be the time to swap packs, at least to confirm the condition of the salvaged pack. jray, do you know how m...

Re: Front tire wear

I still have the OEMs at 27,000 mi. Running 42 psi fr/rr. The fronts are basically done, with the wear on the INSIDE. I bought another set of OEMs last fall because I thought they might get hard to find. I will put them on in the next couple of weeks to be ready for winter. Well, sort of winter. I d...

Re: Dunlop Availability / Price

Well if I could do business with Wal-Mart, that is a good price. It's a good price because they treat employees like I could not.

Anyway - the good news is that Americaswheel.com got fronts and rears in for $530 delivered. Should be here Monday. Do I know how Americaswheel treats its employees? No.

Re: Dunlop Availability / Price

Ok, thanks.

Bad news: the rears are back-ordered nationwide and I can't get them now from onlinetires. Urgh.

Re: Dunlop / Wheel balancing?

Looking at my alloy wheels, I see weights (factory) welded on the inside "flat" surface. It does not appear that the outer rim would accept weights.

Has anyone gotten a balance after new tires? How was it done? Does the inside rim take weights?

Re: Dunlop Availability / Price

That delay makes me think that at least inventory is not high or well-distributed. thanks. Quick-Lane (which is inside our Ford dealership) makes a price-match guarantee. I am going to ask them if that includes online prices. Has anyone else bought these Dunlops ahead and stored them? Am I too worri...

Dunlop Availability / Price

Hi All - I want to stick with the OEM Dunlops. I have 21000 miles on the original set, and the wear is very good. I can likely get almost two more years out of these. However, I am nervous about the Enasaves in these sizes remaining available. Onlinetires.com has them for $235 for the front pair and...
