  1. I inherited a 2007 Mazda CX-7 from my family in good condition. About a week ago due to low tire pressure, I lost control of the car on the LIE taking a turn and ended up rolling over a bumpy highway divider, spinning the car, and blew out both of my back tires. I rode the car on the flat tires about 1500-2000 feet to the highway exit where there was luckily a Mavis discount tire, and they replaced both the tires. Everything seems to work perfectly, except for a loud creaking/clicking noise coming from the rear left tire about once per rotation. It seems to be mostly when the car turns to the right. I don’t know much about cars, but I don’t think its a CV joint since its a FWD car and correct me if I’m wrong but aren’t these only in the front? What else could this clicking noise be? Could the wheel be damaged, or could it be the rotor/brakes?

  8. Hello. My front left tire has been leaking for over a year now despite having new tires. I've had bead seals done, a new valve stem put in, rims sanded down and the tires put through the both water tests (spraying and in the water tank) to check but they're not leaking. Yet I'm still losing PSI quickly and have to refill the tire every week or two. 2009 Honda Civic Sedan. I'm out of ideas and my mechanics are stumped. Please help!

  10. Hi guys, So I'm normally a safe and sensible driver but today I found myself in a tricky spot 😂 I was coming round a hairpin bend on a VERY steep hill (25-30 degrees perhaps) and I had to stop as the road narrowed and a car came the other way. I tried to go up the hill after that passed but I had 4 passengers and loud music (couldn't hear the tires) and my tires just spun (on dry tarmac) for about 5 seconds and was enough to generate a fairly significant amount of smoke at 3k RPM at which point I cut the throttle and went back down the hill in reverse. I pulled over straight after and the tread depth seemed very slightly less and the tires were very warm but no tears or anything. How much will I have shortened their life by?
  11. So I recently got a 97 Z28 camaro for my birthday. And whenever you hard press on the accelerator it makes a loud knock sound and it feels like something Is trying to kick up from under the car. It is by the back right tire. And sometimes I hear rattling sounds from the same location too. Anyone know what's wrong? Thanks!
  12. My dad and I are going to go down to Missouri to pick up a 1978 Chevrolet Malibu. We had some ideas for it like making a car that was fast on the street and fast on dirt. We like the idea of some wide tires on the front and rear. We are likely going to drop a 4 speed manual transmission and a 350 small block in it. I want to know if dirt track tires are street legal, what kinds are recommended for cheap, and if they’ll last long being that they’re made for dirt and not asphalt. It’s just a little project, and some ideas right now.
  13. So I have a stock 2000 Dodge Neon that I'm lifting with custom made spacers, just looking for a little extra clearance. I want to get some bigger off-road/all-terrain tires that I can fit on the stock steel rims. My current tires are 185/70R14, the lug pattern is 5x100. I'm unsure of the rims specific measurements though. I've been all over the web but I can't figure out what the most cost-effective way of doing this is. It's a beater that I'm taking to the Gambler 500 so I don't want to go out and buy brand new rims and tires... Should I just buy an old rim and tire set off someone and try to find a lug adapter? Can I find all-terrain tires to fit my stock steel rims? I understand I'll have to cut up the body to fit them but I'm not worried about that.
  14. I have a 2014 Volkswagen Jetta 1.8T SE, and I want to buy new rims and some coilovers for it. Do I need to get different sized rims or can they be the same size as they are now? If they can be the same size they are now, I don't know what size my rims are now. What size should I get? Should i get the coilovers or the rims first? How big should they be?
  15. the tires have air pressure in them. I purchased a 2010 Acura TSX and the first thing I noticed is both the TMPS warning display and low pressure signal (!) come on every time starting the vehicle. This Acura also has aftermarket rims on it, and 18" instead of the factory 17". I told the dealer about this concern, but he told me the aftermarket rims are what's causing the warning lights to activate. He said the sensor is synchronized with the original factory rims/tire size, thus the aftermarket rims "confuse" the sensor into thinking there is low tire pressure, even though there's not. I find this a bit hard to believe; not many would replace their rims if it meant dealing with a permanent warning light for the duration of that car's life. Is there a way to reset the sensor?
  16. Does anybody own a 2015 Chevy Malibu LS. I have so much trouble with the airdam scraping the ground on the slightest speed bump or driveway entrance. The LT and the LTZ have no problems at all the all have better clearance due to bigger tires. I called Chevy and they sentt me back to the dealer. The dealer does'nt want to do anything about it. If you buy a Malibu. Do yourself a favor and go for the LTZ instead of the LS. The tires are too small and you will be out of luck with the car scraping all the time.
  17. Hey guys, I new to this so sorry if I'm doing something wrong. But anyway, I am getting a 2008 Kia sportage and I was wondering how much a 3in body lift would be, what size tires would be best for it, and it's a 4cyl which most of you know make the pickup really slow so is there anyway i could speed it up but like in a cheaper way? Thanks!

  19. I NEED HELP FAST, PLEASE GIVE ME YOUR IMPUT Okay so I've had this problem for about 2 weeks or so, I own a 2006 Lincoln zephyr, it is a v6, 3.0L, with FWD. After switching the back breaks on my car(new pads, new rotors), i bought 2 used tires, during the install the guy toldme I have abent rim and he will put it in the back so my wheel doesn't shake, after I left the shop I noticed intense vibration on the driver side plus a loud noise as if the tire was loose hitting something and rubbing agains something, went back got it put in the back. I still hear the sound just quiet and in the back, car still vibrates. The car vibrates a little(feeling it when I put my feet on the ground not the pedals) at all time, vibration is sort of under the seat and by the pedals. The car jerks/bumps at really slow speeds (0-15mph) and when I break, but only when I slow down or lightly press the break pedal. When pressed hard it doesn't do that. Every time I start my car it's not that bad but then it gets worst. I know I need my breaks bleeded but could that be the problem?? Or what can it be? This has probably nothing to do with it, but I did get subs put in the car recently, and I have noticed a clicking sound comin from the engine. Sounds like maybe one of the valves.
