    How old is too old for a tire?

    How old of a tire would you feel comfortable running on your DD? Long story short I have a tire that was taken off a new ST when I worked at Ford due to a nail. Turns out the nail didn't puncture the tire so I brought it home and put it in the garage. The time has come for a new set of tires...

    What's your "Perks of the job"?

    We've all heard the line "perks of the job", but what are your personal perks of your job? I'm not talking health insurance or things like that, but what are some perks in your job/industry that the average consumer would not get? Freebies, company cars, first in line for new products or...

    Storing tires?

    I picked up a set of new tires for the ST yesterday unexpectedly. I don't need them yet but the price was a steal. I tossed them in my garage for now but in the summer it's probably around 85-90 degrees in my garage every day. They will sit until probably this winter before they go on, any...

    Anyone had a vehicle lemon lawed?

    This is in NC, but I'm sure suggestions from anyone will be helpful. My 2014 Harley is having continuous issues out of the ignition switch. It has left me stranded twice, and a third time I got it to the dealer before it could leave me stranded. It's always the ignition. First time the...

    Trade in or fix then trade in?

    Just wondering which would be the smarter decision money wise. I'm looking at trading the 2012 focus in on a new mustang. As the focus currently sits, it has 42,000 miles with the original tires that are worn down to 3/32nds, and lucky me just got a huge Crack in the windshield. Other than those...

    15 mustang. GT or ecoboost?

    I've been toying with the idea of getting another mustang in the next few months. My plan originally was to pick up a used 13/14 gt, but the more I look at the 15, especially the interior, the more I like it. I said I would never own a mustang without a V8, but something about the little...
