I was talking about how things have changed over the years, not a mindset. The only thing stupid is you believing I felt that was good practice.

I could give a care less about an airbag. Seat belts save lives, air bags reduce injuries. When I was a kid your mom would hold her arm in front of you if she had to stop fast. If I never get mine...

This is a true statement, these tires fit the wheels a lot better than what came on the car. I couldn't be happier with how this turned out.

It's why I am replacing the tires, they look fine, I just don't trust ten year old tires regardless of appearance.

Actually, since the car has been stored inside and out of the sun, they look new. No cracks or any signs of age.

I put the Redline ones on mine and painted the mount brackets to match the car and they honestly look factory. (it helps when you peel the stickers off the struts)

Good point, but it's even worse than that, they're ten years old!

Deep down that's how I feel too.

On my way in to work this morning I called the "day shift" help at DTD and what a difference. I talked to a very helpful person and she said she would be happy to...

I did some more research and it doesn't make any sense. The Tire Rack has a pretty thorough article about tire age and replacement. They say it isn't unusual for them to be sent tires from a...

Do I have a legit complaint?

So the original tires on the car are ten years old. Manufacturers of both cars and tires say pitch em after six years of build date. I figure for safety sake I will buy new rubber. Discount Tire...

Yeah and it does fit, it's just is at the end of the acceptable rim width range. The measured rim width is the size rim the tire maker mounts it on to provide technical specs and measurements. I...

Thank you for the reply and the pics. I have to agree that they look like a perfect fit. For even more confirmation I looked at my company car (2015 Buick Regal) and it has 235/50-18 tires on 18x8...

255/45-18 or 235/50-18 on stock 8.5" rim?

I have the original (now ten years old) tires on the car. They have tons of tread, just don't trust really old tires. I have the stock 18x8.5 inch rims and am ready to buy new tires. The stock size...

I think a throttle body, cams, and intake would be enough for me, but just not sure. As far as superchargers go, it's a guaranteed $5k and I'm not sure what is the best most reliable set up. I will...

What to do 06GT vs. 11-12 vs. more mods

I have a brand new old car, it's a garage kept 06 GT with 6k miles. The car still smells new and is perfect. It currently has a FRRP CAI, BAMA 93 tune, CMDP, Kooks LT headers with off road H, FR500...

Wow, watch this from 1:10-1:40, I wouldn't try it this way. I would think there is a chance of the strut getting away. If the strut was still bolted into place I could easily see loosening the top...

I'm not sure any polish would be much faster than clay. Is it just down the sides or every panel?

If the bolts aren't loosened on the strut, then that part doesn't change where it currently is. The method I was talking about is not using a spring compressor, but putting a jack under the LCA,...
