If not wanting to spend as much as the Michelins, get the Conti Extreme. I go the Conti Extreme DWS and they are perfect for me.

My 2007 does this when the AUX has a cable plugged in, but nothing connected. I just figured it was feedback form the cable.

It is defiantly coming through the audio system.

Subs are a non-standard ohoms and from what I have read online there is not a direct plug and play model. The amp will need to be changed to change the subs.

Shouldn't one move a front to the back if one of the rears needs to be replaced and then put the spare on the front? I know I would. I would not want that skinny thing on the rear.

Do you have the SOS button on the center console where you elbow is when driving? I have read that water can get in the switch and cause the issue you are having.
