Hay every one.. I figured its time to make a tread just for her.. I need to do some stuff for her and things I wanna do for her & possible MOD's

Any advise is welcome but please keep this thread (rated) PG.. lol in most part.. thX ;) + :lol:
______________________________________________________________________

#1a Tires - I got 20's 175/R40's (Rear) 140/40's (Front) my gauge (dash) states these are 30psi at cold & 35-36psi hot should I air them up more, tho my electric tester (handheld) gauge.. states they are @ 35.5PSI ?, I reset the computer once my tire was fixed ?
#1b Tires - I think here soon I need to replace the Pirelli's, they have 17K on them & when I was cleaning the rims and rotating them, notice the inner tread is wearing out faster than the outer tread.. outer being like normal wear.,How long should I wait to replace the tires & maybe get a alinement (?), also what type of tire should I look at.. besides Pirelli (because it wears out faster than others) the tire store I went to the other day said TOYO has a tire that will work @ 60K & still a performance tire..

#2 Rims- get them repaired as all four have rub marks on them & scratch's at the lips on all four (?), should they be done before replacing the tires or after replacing them & can the sensors be cleaned, what should a guy use on them, I have the one that needed fixed that might be off because it shows up on the dash as its one PSI higher than the others & the computer shows its on the side it got the damage.. tho I rotated tires, it was on the drivers side :lol: & its not now ?

First ... why didn't you start this in the build thread where it belongs?

Second ... how are you rotating the tires? I thought we were not supposed to be rotating these.

Didn't think of it.. and didn't have much time.. did this at work.. :facepalm:

I only rotated the ones.. rear-L to rear-R & front-R to front-L..lol, so not really rotated them just changed the two fronts.. then the two rears..;)

I thought I was told they were directional and you shouldn't do that. (... and you should be working at work :lol: )

I'm agreeing with Hokie on all accounts;

1) You should have put this in the build tread, not the lounge area

2) You need to know if your tires are directional or not. If they are, and I'm assuming they are, since it's a SS, you don't need to rotate the tires at all. It's very difficult to tell by your pictures..

3) If the inner side of your tire is wearing out faster than the outer, you definitely need an alignment done. If your car is within specified limits, the tires should wear evenly, if they are inflated properly.

4) For tire reviews, instead of asking members here, I'd go to Tire Rack and simply look at the feedback and ratings there. That's what I do, and then I compare tires. Then I simply use Google to find the best deal, cheapest place to buy them. It's really not that difficult.

Well, it's now in the build thread :)

1. You still have the staggered rims and oem Pirelli's you don't rotate them or swap sides.
2. Appears you may need an alignment since your inner tread is wearing out faster than the rest of the tire.
3. As for the pressure readout....I go by what my trusty tire pressure gauge in my garage tells me when I check it. Was told tpms is never 100% accurate anyway, always going to be a couple psi off.....Mine are. I always make sure they all read and the pressure goes up as they warm up.
4. And for replacements tires, I too would recommend checking out tire rack read the reviews, and ratings etc...as mentioned earlier.

Hay bucky..
long time no hear.. glad to hear from you..
haha.. I could not change.. the location of my thread.. I'm not a MOD so a MOD would have to do that kind of stuff.. I guess I could of deleted.. it and started fresh :lol:
Also the owners manual, does not state the tiers are directional.. and no where on the tier does it point to them being a directional tier..
I know I need a alinement done if the tier is wearing on one side more than another.. :lol:
I also know, that all the tiers need to be inflated to their correct specks in order for them to wear properly.. never seen tiers.. change in pressure this much.. like 5 pounds or more.. in normal driving conditions.. maybe one or two pounds of pressure :facepalm:

ThX much Nancy.. I was only asking what others have noticed on theirs.. & what they recommend., I know I need a alinement, figured.. I'd be better off waiting.. til I get new tiers.. because..it will most likely need another one if I didn't.. and got new tiers later, when its time to replace them as to much tier is off now and I feel a alinement is to late at this point.. til I replace the old tiers.
I knew from my 68.. once tiers heat up.. they expand and theirs more pressure.. but at a much greater rate and much more faster, when on the track.. vs normal driving.. witch the tiers would or should only increase in pressure.. like a few pounds.. I would think, not greatly.. like 5 or more psi..
I've thought of looking at them.. the tier rack.. tho the shops around here are not bad and they do free tier repairs and other stuff.. you cant get online places to offer any ways.. and if the prices are close.. and the other stuff are not much different in price w/the tiers.. its almost a better way to go IMO

ThX everyone for the great advice.. :thumbsup::thumbsup:

HotRod-

Good to hear from you as well. I've not around much, as life has been extremely good to me and extremely busy. I still check into this place from time to time, but in all honesty- There's not a lot of information nor sponsors on MC anymore. Sadly, I truly have no use for it, except to say hi.

Maybe this link will help you out. I wouldn't think your owners manual would tell you anything about your tires, with the exception of tire pressure. Why? Because anyone can change their tires, put any type of tire on their car and then the owners manual is now outdated. Out of every new car I've ever bought, I don't think the owners manual ever told me if the tire was a directional or not. On both of my 2002 SS Camaro's that I bought, they had directional tires on them.

As for the digital reading on your dash with your tire pressure- I'm not sold on how accurate they are. I run nitrogen in my wifes 2012 Malibu LTZ and I always see a 4 degree difference between Hot and Cold. From what I've read, that was the point of nitrogen, so you don't have that constant heat cycle..... But, I'm not an engineer, so I don't pay any attention to it. I check the tires the old fashion way, with my tire gauge. Never fails me!! :thumbsup:

Offhand, I might recommend nitro for your next set of tires ... the dealer had it in mine when I bought it and I had to take it in once to get it adjusted, but other than that they have had no pressure issues for two years ... the only thing is that you need to make sure you have the nitro available nearby because I had to drive 35 miles to get it and that wasn't great

I just got Nitto Motivo's for the Trans Am....60k mileage tire and they are not directional so can switch sides when it's time to "rotate". And the price on them is very reasonable.

those? I meant nitrogen in the tires instead of air ... supposedly more stable
