The seller or someone else did. It did not come stock that way. Pretty good looking as far as aftermarket wood goes.

I don't know, and I am wondering. My shop took it to the tire place. I may call on Monday to see if they have the numbers. I could talk to the actual tire place, but I don't want to bug them too...

The tires are brand-new, and as noted in my post, after two or three unsuccessful balances on a regular machine, they took them to another tire shop to have them roadforced.

Thanks Dave for your response. I was thinking of you when I decided to go with the ContiProContact. I was hopeful they would be more civil.

It happens wet or dry. Last year, the owner of a...

In early '05 I upgraded rims to 18" ASA ST3's with Dunlop Direzzas. Car vibrated horribly. Two Roadforce balances did not help. I lived with the issue...

From what I've read here on the forum, the tuning of KYB aftermarket is a bit different from the OEM shocks.

The Turanza LS aren't available in 245/45 18. There is the Turanza EL42. But ranks...

Well, I have the ContiExtremeContact's installed. Pretty quiet for an aggressive tire. They are much cushier than my Dunlop Direzzas were. I was very happy with them ...until I hit 80MPH. I seem...

Yes, the second installer cut the bump stops in the front to allow for more movement. I thought he did all four, but when I had the rear shock out yesterday, the bump stop is put together in kind of...

For me, I looked at them briefly, but they are summer-only tires, which I was trying to get away from. I think (but don't know for sure) that summer tires tend to have a harder compound and may be...

I went ahead and pulled the trigger on the Conti's. I guess we'll see. I looked pretty hard at exactly what reviewers were saying about a tire, and what kind of car they had. I put more emphasis on...

Are they bad becuase the have a rough ride, or because they don't handle like a performance tire? I don't care if they don't live up to the Pilot Sport or Nero in handling. I want them to ride better...

What steered me away from the M550s was all of the Lexus owner reviewers complaining of flatspotting and vibrations. It seems like it may happen with the ContiExtremeContact as well, but maybe to a...

No, it is not. Apparently, a lot of SC owners did not like the ride of the run flat and switched. One reviewer put an air compressor and tire goo in his trunk instead.

I just didn't suspect it to be that dramatic. Maybe I'm getting old, but back when I had my GS, I replaced stock with H&R and Bilstein and noticed it was a bit firmer, but not uncomfortable at all....

I don't think you need to know the time. It might count as a hit and run. My LS was backed into by someone in an ML430. I didn't discover it until hours later and a long road trip, but know that's...

No BFGs in 245/45 18. There is the BFG KDWS in 235/50 18. At $79 a tire, they're a steal, but reviews were mixed and I am worried the sidewall will look fat compared to 245/45 18 (an extra .6" in...

I didn't think I cared that much about quiet either, until I owned my Dunlop Direzzas. My car turns into a low pitch tuning fork when I drive. It's insane.

I don't mind a little "white noise"...
