If you look on the drivers door jamb there should be a sticker or plate with the original tire size for your vehicle.

Is it true that using the cruise control when it is raining may cause your automobile to aquaplane and fly off the road?


I turn cruise control off in the rain. It wants to maintain your set speed no matter what the road conditions, like puddles.

Can I replace 1 or 2 tires at a time on an AWD vehilce?


Some tire shops frown on this and will sell you the tires but not mount them at their shop. So you might have to take your old tires off your car and bring just the rims in. However, it has been my experience that you should be just fine. Even if you were in Alaska in winter. As long as you either mount them both as back or front tires. DO NOT mount them both on the left or right side, unless you enjoy spinning out and hydro planing ;)

Sucking gas


A few things come to mind here, perhaps they haven't been eliminated yet, although should have been checked prior to new ECU. 1- proper size tires/wheels and inflation. 2-brakes checked for possible sticking at one or more wheels. Plugged catalytic converter. ( usually comes with poor acceleration/feels like it holds back on climbing a hill etc.) 3-air filter plugged or/or restriction in air intake. 4- proper (champion) spark plugs and gapped properly. Driving habits, as in highway miles/city driving? Has it ever had combustion chamber cleaner done?

What is a good tire to buy for 2007 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited tire size P245- 65-17R


Couple of common choices around here
If you want an All terrain that's good in the snow, rain and quiet, go with Cooper Discover AT/3 or more aggressive Goodyear Duractrac.

If you want Best MPG
Michelin Latitude tours

Tons of other great tire choices, but you didn't give us any details =(

What is the correct tire size for 92 geo prizm


It depends if your gsi or lsi
gsi says, p185/60R14
lsi is a 13 inch tire, one said, P155/80R13
Maybe you need to check your suspension?
There might be a placard on driver door post that has tire size?
I just looked at tirerack, it said 175/70-13

2000 Neon--when i drive in rain or snow or any bump I go over my car loses a bit of control, what I mean is it just feels like my tires are no longer tracking.


Have you had a professional check your struts for being weak? Have tires inspected as well for tread depth/wear. I know my 95 neon seemed to hydroplane in wet weather and felt out of control quite often as well, with good tires, but poor tread design for the Neon,but I put new, different tires on it, and I could fly through water puddles after that, and no pull from steering wheel, as well as stay in line during slushy/snow conditions as well.

Turning problems


My Answer:

The one thing you never mentioned was if you had your Jeep SUV Front-end Aligned after you had the new tires installed?

I'm guessing/hoping you did???

Where did you have the work done at? Be specific here!

Was it a 2-wheel or 4-wheel alignment if that applies here? Big difference it was done RIGHT or if it was done WRONG? That's just maybe part of the problem though if it was indeed MIS-ALIGNED. When you say PULLING - that is a BIG CLUE right there of a possible MIS-ALIGNMENT!!

Not sure what size tires you had on it originally or which size new tires you had put on, but if the new tires were over-sized then you are rubbing on the mainframe or possibly rubbing the front fender wells??

This has happened before, as sometimes they don't pull the right size tires from stock, and then don't double check them before mounting them.

Esp when you are running bigger rims and lower profile tires, which might be your case, as you didn't say anything to the contrary.

If we're talking about STOCK tires for STOCK tires here then your driver side door decal will state the factory installed tires as to their proper size. Any modification to that as to bigger rims and lower profile tires has to be done to factory recommended specs. Lets hope so anyway!

If I were you I would be double checking everything, as to what was actually done, and as to what tires, etc were put on your SUV.

The clue to your problem lies right there to start with! After all nothing was mentioned about any "pulling" before you had the new tires put on.

Here's one last big clue as to if you actually got a "bad alignment" on your Jeep SUV.

Have someone else drive behind you on an empty straight flat street (or else have someone else drive your Jeep and you follow behind about 4 to 5 car lengths back). If your Jeep's body is trying to track crooked (as if on an angle diagonal to straight ahead) as the tires are trying to track straight ahead - then you definitely just got a bummer mis-alignment!

I'm putting my money this is the case, as I've seen it so many times it's not funny.

It called a "shade tree alignment" and for good reason.

Let me know I was right?

Rim and tires


Your tires will certainly last longer and your steering may be sharper. Here are the issues (having done this on other cars):
  • cars are generally designed to use one size of tire for a reason...too large a tire is not good in the rain, for example
  • your speedometer/odometer will read wrong
  • there is a possibility of body interference in turns or in full suspension jounce
Assuming you do this: make sure your front end is in good condition and use the same width tire. Your car may have a different model with an oversized tire. Ask your dealer what modifications to address the speedometer issue are available.
