So Wheelwell fam, I need everyone's help/advice on summer tires tread life. Last November, I purchased a set of Continental Extremecontact DW summer performance tires and had them mounted,balanced, and aligned at about 18,000 miles. I went in for my oil change yesterday at 25,000 miles and while I was there I noticed that my front tires were nearly bald. This is my first time on summer performance tires but, I was expecting them to go 15-20K miles on
I spent a couple of hours this weekend washing and waxing my old car, the E-Class. It blows my mind how well the paint cleaned up after being very dirty. There were some paint chips and cracks but, that is to be expected for a 15 year old car. This car is truly an example of when Mercedes were built to "a standard and not a price". This truly makes it worth the time and effort spent on detailing.
I got to see a Defender 130 truck today in Switzerland. This is one vehicle I really wish we got in the U.S! It was funny to see a vehicle that is highly sought after in the U.S.just being used as a work truck in the rest of the world. This would seem to be the European F-150.
