Yes, that's correct. The FSDs are designed to work with the stock sport suspension. Combined with regular (non-RFT) tires, they will improve the ride greatly. It's still pretty stiff and sometimes a...

I was a huge Honda fan-boy back in the 90's. I had a 89 Accord, 97 Accord, 98 Integra GS-R and an 03 RSX-S. But when I grew up and started looking at sports sedans, I moved to Audi and BMW as...

I hear a lot of people blame the poor road conditions on bad winters, salt, plows, and traffic volume. As Nordic Kat pointed out, NH and VT has decent highways. They certainly have worse winters than...

Luckily, they appear to be in stock at Tire Rack. They are popular because they are an amazing tire. Love em. Not sure where to go for good eats in Baltimore. I haven't lived here for over 20 years....

Unfortunately, I'm not a Wazer. I don't like fumbling with my phone while driving. I need a good mount or something.

Yet another pothole!!!

A month ago, I hit a nasty pothole and scratched my rim. Although it was quite an explosion, I got lucky in that I don't think I did any mechanical damage. I got the rim touched up and was as good as...

I used to have a very short commute and got the lifter ticking noise all the time. The solution? Go for longer drives. You could have your lifters replaced, but from what I've heard it's not really...

Ride height after sitting on a jack

So my wheel repair guy came out today and did a great job. He put the car up on a jack to get the wheel off. The car was on the jack for about an hour. After he put it down and left, I noticed the...

I'm confused. People on here are stating their opinions about why they ditched their RFTs and posting valid arguments. And that makes them snobs? If a RFT is a better performing tire, why don't some...

The way the RFTs bounced all over rough pavement, I actually felt unsafe driving with them. And that was feeling unsafe every day. If pavement were smoother around here, I'd be more likely to stick...

I don't have winter rims. I mount stock-sized winter tires on my stock rims. So there's no advantage to leaving them on longer, at least as far as protection is concerned. Good idea though!

Nadir, I can't speak for Colorado, but the roads in my area are horrendous. With RFT, I had to deal with an awful ride quality day in, day out. 365 days per year. I've been driving for 25 years now...

Yeah, as long as your wheel, suspension and alignment are okay, sounds like you got off relatively easy. My neighbor has a 330i (e46 I think?) and he blew is right front AND rear tire on a pothole a...

Agree. Two scenarios...

Option A, RFT. Pay a fortune and have crappy ride quality. Pick up a nail with RFT. Limp to service station. Save the cost of a tow truck, but be stranded for 3 days...

My daughter isn't anywhere near driving age, but I think I'd feel better with her waiting for AAA rather than her attempting to change a tire on the side of a busy interstate.

I KNOW!!! This pisses me off beyond belief. All they do is turn what had been a pothole into a pot "hill." A bump is a bump. Down or up, doesn't really matter. The end result is a bunch of lumpy...

True, the pothole I hit was pretty bad. But I can say with confidence that if I had the RFTs on the car, it would have been much worse. And, I'd likely have a bubble in my RFT sidewall, thus need a...
