Re: Wtb 1x front alloy wheel, FS or trade 2x used front oem tires

Assuming these wheels/tires are from 2012 cars, the tires are already more than 6 years old - Why would anybody be interested in buying 6+ year old rubber? You wouldn't put those on a car to drive . . . . would you? I have OEM tires on my cars which will be replaced this year - Not because they're w...

Re: Stock Shocks Replacement Options

How many miles on your car? You should be fine until at least 75K or so on suspension parts. No chance that your dealer is suggesting a change just because he knows he'll be making a mint on a hard to find part, is there? :lol: There's nothing 'special' about our rear shocks (or the front struts for...

Re: Shore Trip

So if I go 25mph I should expect to get about 110 miles range correct? 25mph still gets me there in just over 3 hours instead of 5-6 if I stop and charge. I could go half way at 25 and then stop and calculate to see if I can pick up the pace on the last half. I'm thinking of just putting one of tho...

Nope, there isn't - Do it hiding in your garage after dark and hopefully nobody will notice :lol:

A New Tire For Us!

While researching 175/55R15 tires to go on my new wheels, I ran across a new Eco Continental tire in 145/65R15 which is the OEM size for the front of our cars. The good news is . . . . they are only $85 at Tire Rack!!

Re: Admin: Spam Concerns

Yes - I deleted about 20 yesterday and banned two users. Today it was closer to 40 and I banned 5 or 6 more. All 'User names' were a random collection of letters and numbers and all joined on May 08, so they were pretty easy to find and ban

We'll see what tomorrow brings!

Re: 12V battery BCI Size?

That would be great if they could find a dc to dc converter robust enough to power all the controls and accessories without a lead acid battery. Obviously it would have to be powered up from the traction battery 24/7. In actuality, that's exactly what's happening - Nothing 'runs off the 12 volt bat...
