    DRLs don't mean rears are on!!! Is it me ?

    Day after day in fog, rain and dusk, the number of cars with no lights or relying on their front facing Daylight Running Lights, seems huge. I know my own automatic lights don't always activate in fog, but I have the sense nonetheless to switch them on manually. And as for rain etc. I travel...

    New rears - but for a different use...

    So I am going to be doing a half day session with a race car driver in my own car. I am going to use my old 18s as the 19s could possibly foul the arches under extreme cornering and the (not cheap) tyres could well be wiped out after a short time. The fronts are reasonable (MPS2) but...

    AMG III rears on the front?

    Just a thought experiment, I don't like the front wheels of my car, but I like the rear wheels.. The rears are nicely dished in, the front seem a little dished out (These are the 18" staggered standard AMG / Ronal wheels on the CLK Sport) So my question is... If I could find two rears...

    Balanced rears?

    Probably a dumb question but here goes..... With a staggered set up where the rear wheels are never going to be put on the steered front axles, is there any detriment to not having those rears balanced?

    Upgrade w204 to LED rears?

    As soon as I find the right car at the right price, I'll be buying a w204 c220 sport. I see the newer versions have LED rear lights. I've found some on e-bay for a couple of hundred. Does anyone now if I can just remove the old ones and replace with new LED units? Any advice gratefully received.

    Tyre wear on rears

    I have a W208 320 and I'm having to replace the rear tyres. Both are worn on the inside edge which I thought strange. I know aggressive cornering will wear outside edges and tyre pressures can wear middle or both edges, but how do you wear an inside edge? Is camber adjustable on these? The wear...

    Front tyres bigger than the rears??

    Hi, I was looking at my steering (see other post) and I've just noticed that my front tyres are 205 and the rears are 195. Is this correct? Shurely shome mishtake? (I have the standard factory alloys) Thanks Nick Mann 1997 c240 Elegance Estate
