Well, cut the guy a break...... its not a $30,000-$40000 any more - it's a $3000-$4000 vehicle. So $30 cheap chinese crap isn't totally out of line!

Weve had our 1999 from new. The gas mileage has gone down a couple of mpg over the 17 years we've owned it. I now get 20mpg pretty much regardless of the speed I go. Maybe 22mpg at 65 on the freeway,...

The donuts ARE usually the same rolling (outside) diameter. Just measure it and see. In any event, a short distance should be no problem.

Even if it's the same color, it's not going to match your 15-year old worn seats, so I wouldn't worry too much.

I believe dealers service the calipers when they do a brake job (remove o-rings, clean and lube pistons, and slide pins, bleed brake system).

Get the Prodigies on the front too. They are a decent tire and can't be beat at the price. I got a set of 4 for $300 and am happy as a clam!

255/40x17s won't fit on the front. You're limited to 225/40x17 or 235/40x17 square on 17x8" rims on an awd. Make sure the rims clear the brake calipers.

Bear in mind that the oil companies may be buying their gas from the same refiners. Who knows what you're getting at the pump these days.

245 or 255 won't fit on the front - the largest you can go is 235 on an 8" rim with the correct offset. Even then, several manufacturers 235s rub on the front liner.

Most "lifetime warranties" are engine and transmission only. I would say after the Lexus warranty, the carmax warranty probably comes in next best. After that, its a crapshoot.

If price is no object, get the Michelins. I like the MXV4 but any of their passenger tires are great. If price is an issue, get the Continental DWS.
