Any Body Want to Buy Me A Set of Rear Tires for 2SS?

Guys,

I am really going to need someone to help out with a new set of rear tires. You see #230 has a problem that started Tuesday night. She likes to smoke her tires. I keep telling her not to do it but she is even doing it at half throttle.

She even made me clean up mess. Had a 3/4 diet pepsi in the front cup holder and punched her at 60 to get around a truck. She pushed me and the soda back into our seats and the soda sloped out some.

At this rate she is going to need some new rear soles soon.

This is what I think of #230

Yokohama Parada Spec-X from http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires....Qty=2&i1_Qty=2 might do the trick. $150 each.


RPEKA needs to see this.

Yeah, I'd like a list of what they did, cause that sounds a ton different than my L99. Although, when coming into to work today the ol' SS seemed "slippy" in the rear and I didn't even turn off TC. I didn't know anything about using 93 Octane, because my 09 GMC Sierra would not start properly and I had an engine light when I put 93 in it. The dealer told me to only use 87, and sure enough after 2 cold starts after a full tank of 87, it work properly. So with that "fear" in my mind, I thought all new GMs needed 87 only. So, I'm at a quarter tank now and plan to burn it up today, then start running 93. I'm guessing I should pull/reset the ECM fuse at the same time? Or is there something else I need to do to clear the problem and use the correct "fuel-usage-spark-retardation-multi-transforming-bumblebee-make-this-thing-go-faster" ECM/chart setting?

Good to hear your happy again

You are so difficult to please!

Glad you're finally happy with your car though
