flat spots really aren't much of a thing anymore...and the winters on early!?!? :LOL:
It is never too early to put winters on....

If a modern tire has a persistent flat spot (not a "I let the car sit for a half year and got a bit of a thumpety thump for the first couple of miles") then the tire is defective.

It is far easier for the dealer to say "buy a new tire" than it is for them to put in a warranty claim with Bridgestone".

Most Bridgestone dealers will warranty this without question - new'ish tire with a defect that keeps it from balancing.

Your dealer needs to be slapped by VW of Canada.

If you're going to put winter tires on in early May you might as well run them year around.

Anybody know how this goes together? IKEA has spoiled me. I thought the ring clamp was for the turbo, but I think I'm supposed to re-use my old one and use this one to join the mid-section. Also is there any kind of rubber washer or something comes off of the hold turbo clamp between the DP and the turbo that I need to reuse?
