    This led me to do the winter tire swap today. The Gen1 16" alloys (WR7?) from a yard were $70/each with TPMS sensors, about the same price as a set of steelies without the sensors. The Dunlop Winter Sports 205/55-16's carried over from my 2008 Astra trade-in (which had summer tires back in...

    I am about to purchase a 2015 LTZ for my daughter. Although the winter is coming to an end, what sizes wheels and winter tires do you use? I see tire rack has packages from 15" - 18". They recommend the 15" ??

    I'm curious to hear other owners data about any drop in fuel economy with winter fuel. Since the Polar Vortex arrived (and left) where I live I've experienced four tanks of fuel that are consecutively terrible. From the Polar Vortex I'm sure the fuel suppliers have been blending #1 diesel into...

    Is it normal to get significantly less fuel economy in the winter? I'm in northern Michigan and it's been a very cold winter thus far. In fact right now is -35F. Does this have much bearing on fuel economy? I also use 87 octane.

    So this is the first time I will have ever put a vehicle away for several months. What should I do and what precautions should I take? I have heard many conflicting ideas about what to do when storing a car. What is most correct? Thanks in advance!
