We have whatever Michelin tires the dealer put on our '16 RRS SC. I'm really not sure which ones they are, but they look like typical road tires. They have done extremely well in all conditions for...

What do you mean by ‘refresh’ the heads? Replace all moving internal parts? I’m debating a rebuild vs a cheap running engine. Down the road (1-2 years) I plan on either a Cummins r2.8 or a rebuilt...

I replaced all four mounts at once when I did it. The rear two were much easier to get to and to install from what I remember. The fronts just didn't want to come out for me. I did remove a...

Spark plugs are wet but I'm not positive if I can tell if there is gasoline on them or just the penetrating oil I sprayed in there. Regardless, there is no change when I spray starting fluid in the...
