Re: Good deal on Yoko 175/60R15s

I have good news and bad news. My 2-tire shipment came as two separate packages, one of which arrived yesterday. (Hopefully the other arrives today.) That tire is dated the 24th week of 2018, not bad. The bad news is that I just looked at the link where I bought them, and the price has been increase...

Good deal on Yoko 175/60R15s

My front tires were toast so I bought some new front Yokos last August from TireRack. Installed them in October and only a few hundred miles later, I just picked up a screw in one.

Performance shocks/struts

Hi Everyone, First post, been lurking for awhile. Learned enough to go out and buy a used i-MiEV. (3000 original miles, cost $8k for essentially a new car - gotta love early adopters who shouldn't be.) It had a checkered past, came off lease and sat in an auction lot for months. Thank you, caniOn, f...
