  1. Got 4 new tires. They had a red dot and a yellow dot marked on the tire wall. Tire shop guy mounted 3 tires on the wheels such that more or less the red dot was aligned with the tire valve. On those tires, the yellow dot was quite close to the red dot. So perhaps it could be the yellow dot that was aligned with the tire valve. But as I see it, the red dot was closer. On the 4th tire, the angle of separation between the red dot and the yellow dot was a bit less than 180 deg. Tire shop guy aligned the yellow dot with the tire valve. I asked why not the red dot and the guy said it should be yellow dot. Subsequently all wheels were balanced. Also all tire valves (whole valve - stem and all - rubber type) were replaced too. Afterwards on googling info on red dots and yellow dots, what I gathered from a few sites was that when mounting the tire, the yellow dot should be aligned with the tire valve but if a red dot is present, that should be aligned with the tire valve. (1) Is this correct? Then the tire shop guy was wrong and knew only part of the method. (2) Now that the 4th tire is "balanced", does it matter whether the valve stem was aligned to the yellow dot and not the red dot ? I did not test out at highway speeds yet, but did not feel any significant vibration upto say about 70 kmph. But am no expert. If this matters, I will need to get the tire re-mounted and balanced before the dots get fully wiped off. (3) Is it recommended to change the whole tire value when replacing with a new tire? I ask because, afterwards, I heard some bad stories of cheap tire valves failing.. So wondered if the tire valves that came with the car from japan, even though old (say 10 years or more) would have been better than new cheap tire valves available in tire shops. I can not turn back time, but for other vehicles I can be more cautious. Thanks

  9. Hi Experts I need some advice for my tires. I have read lots of threads related to this topic on the forum. But i need expert advice to replace my tires. When i brought my car one year ago it was fixed with brand new 4 tires. It was Chinese brand (BCT S600) and i knew previous owner fixed those just to sell the car. I am a daily runner average 40 km per day and now done 12000km. treads of the all 4 tires are totally gone and every time i visit to Tyre shops for check air or wheel alignment they says the tires are bad and rubber is very hard. But i know it can run further few thousand kilo meters. The my question is this is the reason for low riding comfort and high road noise i am experiencing form my car? The recommended Tyre size is 165/65/R15 but existing size is 185/65/R15 is this also a reason? Can i get noticeable difference if i replace the tires with good brand and correct size. also previous owner has replaced the original alloy wheels with Chinese brand ( I don't know why hell he was done it) is that make trouble when put correct Tyre size? Is this Chinese BCT S600 is actually bad brand? what are the good quality tire brands for my car. Car is Chevrolet Cruze. Advises are highly appreciated.
  10. Hi All, I recently bought a J44 4DR5 Jeep. It is not having power steering. And I am willing to keep it's original features. I need to upgrade tire because they are worn-out. Jeep had 15" size rims with radial tire. Later I bought original 4DR5 Rim size 16". Now I am having both 15" & 16" size rims. I found only CE#T tires available in 6.00-16 with bar threads( Calling as Jeep Katta). No way to find out 7.60 15" Tires. My Questions Is there any issues with using 6.00-16 tires, instead of 15" size? (Braking, Stability, Comfortably, Noise....) Is there any other way to find tires with higher width?(Like 7.60..). I had attached a image bellow. It 's spare wheel is low width tire. What would be the usability of similar kind of tire ? And sizeof the tire? Thank you

  15. Guys, i need to change all 4 tyres and currently it has Falken ZE912 205/50R16 tyres. i have two questions. 1. i was thinking to put 205/55 instead of 205/50 coz 55 gives u the best speed output. yet it is about 1cm thinker. so thinking what to go with. 2. I was checking out the Dunlop Sport LM703 tyre. But it has different critics in the internet. some say its good n some say its side walls are very bad. anyone who has been using this tyre. If not what would be a good alternative. I need to know the brand, model and the country of mfg that you recommend. my budget is max around 25k per tire. thanks in advance.
