    I have a set of four. In this part of the world (Canada) we switch all four tires each winter. The car normally has 205 55 16s and I have a set of 205 60 16 winter tires.

Poor gas milage?


Thinking you are getting poor gas milage,Your engine is running smooth,no misses,Engine runs smooth while accelerating up a hill, Still poor gas milage, Check your tire pressure. I have a 1999 Chevy Blazer 4x4, 4.3 Ltr. Auto, loaded. I have just over 154000 miles on it,I change my fluids every 5000 miles. Summer driving milage got real bad. I drive a Blazer hard. I tow a 16ft trailor usally loaded to the top with wood. Tires get hot in the summer, while in the winter, they stay mostly cool. Always check your air pressure.Most vehicals are equipted with radials now days, So if you think a tire looks low, check it, Usally they low. Usally in the winter months, nobody checks tire pressure. It really does make a difference. I went from 17.2 MPG to 19.5 MPG, while pulling the same trailor loaded with wood. I cut my own wood then stack it in my trailor to sell. I have Good Year Wranglers size: P235/75R/15 I just replace these with new ones. The old ones are going on my trailor. Counted milage on tires are 65000 Miles. Tires were rated at 40000 miles, Under normal use.

Will i have a problem installing 225/60/15 winter tires on my 1999 chevy tahoe


Hello,

I pulled up your vehicle information in our fitment guide and tires in the 225/60/R15 and 225/60R16 sizes are not load rated for your vehicle. They are also quite a bit smaller than the tires that came on your Tahoe when new. Running a tire that is too small (even if it was load rated) will have an effect on your vehicles performance. We do not recommend installing either of these sizes for safety and performance reasons.

If your Tahoe came with 15" wheels we would recommend looking into the 235/75R15 size.

If your Tahoe came with 16" wheels we would recommend looking into the 245/75R16 or 235/75R16 sizes.

If you are still searching for some winter tire options please feel free to shop our website at www.discounttire.com or contact one of our local Discount Tire or America's Tire stores. We would love to help you find a great winter tire that will fit your Tahoe correctly and help keep you and your passengers safe.

Tire Pressure Monitoring Fault

What is the recommended tyre pressure for winter conditions


the same as during the summer. look on your tires and test the pressure to see if it's close to the maximum psi, they are good, refill if the pressure is troo low.
the air is compressed when it's cold and expands as it gets hot. check your tire pressure every week and especially when the temperature changes like the cold winters and the hot summer.

What are the winter and power buttons for on the center console below the hand brake.


Those buttons are similar to traction control on some newer vehicles. The winter button causes less torque to be transfered to your tires all at once therefore reducing the chance of spinning. The power button allows all torque to be applied to you tires more for pulling a trailer or normal summer driving.

What fuel is best for my Chev Malibu, 2003. I live


Standard 87 octane is all that car requires. You will gain no benefit from using mid or top grade fuel.

Most passenger car tires are run between 32 and 35 psi, regardless of season. You can look at the side of the tire to find what the max cold psi pressure is. You will normally find that it is 35psi.

As for summer/winter tires. If the wobble only happens when the snow tires are installed, and not with the summer tires, that obviously eliminates the car as being the problem. Do you have your summer and winter tires mounted on different sets of wheels, or do you swap the tires every season on the same wheels?

If they are on different sets of wheels, then the winter tires are out of balance, have some sort of damage to the carcass of the tires, or you have a bent wheel. If you are using the same wheels and swapping the tires every season, then you need to have your winter tires balanced and see if it solves the problem.

Rough and noisy ride with 16 inch Nokian Wr tires on 04 focus


Almost any 60 series 15" tire will ride better than a 60 series 16" or lower. Rule of thumb: as the sidewall gets lower the ride gets worse, but handling is better. Living room couch or NASCAR....you decide

Tire pressure light remains on.


We took it back to the dealer. They made the necessary adjustments needed after the winter tires +rims were put on.
