My 2000 model mazda protege makes a clunk when making sharp turns, accelerating or shifting from 1st to 2nd gear?


Sounds like a bad cv joint. Easy way to check is to raise the front of the vehicle so both front tires are off the ground. Use jack stands under the vehicle and block the rear tires. Start the engine and put the tranny in drive. Let the front wheels rotate while the engine is idling and turn the steering wheel slowly in both directions. Listen for the clunking noise. You may have to speed the engine up a little to make it work.

What are the original sized tires for a mazda protege 1992


175/70/R13 For the DX Model
185/60/R14 for the 4wd model and LX

You can also look directly on your tires sidewall, or side of tire and locate the sizing.
If you see the 14, it has a 14" tire, meaning, it fits a 14" rim.
If you see a 13", it has a 13" tire and fits a 13" rim.

Hope this helps, rate for it to help others.

Front tires wearing faster than should.


uneven wear- on one side of each tire- need front end alignment.
wearing in center- over inflated tires.

If they seem to wear evenly but quicker than they should, rotate with the rear so they all wear at same time.

I Had the tires rotated on my 2008 mazda cx9 at 13,000 miles in our local shop here,then i noticed a humming sound coming from front of vehicle and only when it approaches 50 to 55 mph,could it possibly be...


The noise is most likely caused by the different wear pattern on the tire that came from the rear of the car. The difference in the alignment between the front and rear suspension systems causes the tires to wear accordingly. It will take some time for the tires to wear in to their new environment. The noise should go away gradually. You should also check your tire pressure to make sure you don't have an improperly inflated tire.

Is it safe to use a tire size other than the 'stock' 195/55/r15 on a 2003 Mazda Protege DX-Sedan? If so, what are acceptable options other than this size?


Yes , tire sizes can be changed without any problem , as long as you don't go too different. Here is how a tire is measured........
195 is the width of the tire 19.5 centimeters , 55 is a measurement of the amount of rubber outside the metal rim , in your case it is 55% of the width ( 195 ) the r15 is the rim size 15 inch.
You could go to a slightly wider tire with a lower profile , like a 205/50/15 or a slightly narower tire with more profile like a 185/60/15.
The important thing is to try to stay close to the same overall hight . if your old tires are 25" in diameter , try to stay close to that , or you will throw your speedometer out of true.

How much air do I put in 2003 Accent tires


The proper tire pressure for the front and rear tires should be shown on a small sticker (placard) inside the driver door jam. Open the driver side door, and look for a sticker that shows the manufacturing date, and other information, such as the proper tire size, load capacity, tire pressure, etc.

The placard pressure is what you should ALWAYS set your tire pressure to, unless you have installed different tires/wheels than came with the car when new (and then it's anyone's guess).

The placard pressure is what the manufacturer has decided is the best pressure based on their testing for that specific vehicle. Whenever I have tire work done, I always asks the shop to inflate the tires to placard pressure. You'd be surprised, they often set the pressure wrong!
