Re: Best Tires for Handling & Rain Traction? - '98 SC2

If you want curve control, be sure to buy a top quality 40-grit sanding belt for your bench sander. Also, you will need a 1/2 horsepower electric motor to spin the tire while the belt sander grinds...

Bridgestone Turanza Serenity + have the potential to be great tires.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

It’s Firehawk “AS”.
After a long highway run, I will grind the (still warm) “AS” tire round with the belt sander. It will probably be fine after that.

Re: What did you do to your S-Series today...

Drove the two new rear tires 230 miles. Handling improved A LOT. :)

Re: I am running out of gasoline

These engines will “knock” under higher loads in hot weather with the A/C running. Doesn’t hurt anything, the PCM retards timing a little. Higher octane will help keep the timing advanced...

Re: A Dodge Ram Rear-Ended Red Hot.

If the trunk doesn’t latch, you probably need a body shop to pull it back. Close is good enough. You could do the trunk yourself, but the mounts for the bumper need a body shop.
