Tire Rack Tire Test - Winter/Snow vs. All-Season vs. Summer Tires on Ice
First we compared all-season and winter/snow tire performance on our snowy
test track. Now watch as Tire Rack compares the difference between
winter/snow tires, all-season tires and summer tires by evaluating
acceleration, stopping and cornering capabilities — this time using an
ice rink as our test track.
Tire Rack Tire Test - All-Season vs. Winter Tires
Many of today's vehicles leave the factory with all-season tires. While
all-season tires are intended to provide traction in a wide variety of
weather conditions, we've found they can behave like a Jack-of-all-trades,
master of none. Watch as we compare the difference between all-season
tires and winter tires by evaluating acceleration, stopping and cornering
capabilities on our snowy test track.
How to stretch a tire... and how you don't.
First time we had to use fire to make a tire stretch out.
Stretching 195/45R15s on 9Jx15 BBS RMs.
Didn't work at first, but we got there!
As more and more people cry about handling and whatever when it comes to
These wheels will be going on a stanced out 1986 Scirocco 16V weekend
It's meant to look good in the first place, handling just comes second.

worse...normal driving you won't notice any difference though.
On my MKIII GTI, I run 195/40s on 9" wide rims for daily use and meetings,
while I run 215/35s on 9" wide rims for track use (see my onboard videos on
215s will just stretch slightly on 9", stiffening the sidewall up only a
little, giving you a more direct steering, while still allowing fast
In combination with harder rubber bushings, more stiff suspension setup and
unbiall top mounts, etc.etc. this results in an almost GoKart like, very
direct handling...sure not the fastest setup, but fast and fun enough for
The Tire-Punishing, 400HP Turbo BMW E30! - /TUNED
The BMW E30 is quickly becoming a cult classic among the DIY, autocross,
and track crowd. And though the M3 version may be climbing so quickly in
price, soon no one will be able to afford one, the 325i, as it turns out,
has some chops as a great platform for tuning. Kameron Baker's homebuilt
E30 is just about the nicest one we've seen, and if you think it looks
great, wait till you see how it drives.

eas | aurora Angel Eye Installation Overview - 2003 e46 325Ci
Installation overview of aurora Angel Eye kit on a 2003 BMW 325Ci.
We have seen lots of Angel Eye kits on the market in the past 5 years.
Everything from separate lightsources, CCFL tubes, failing inverters and
LED kits with gaps and warranty issues with vendors. What happens when you
can't find something for your BMW on the market that suits your needs?
You simply design them yourself.
Introducing aurora, an entirely redesigned angel eye kit for your BMW from
eas - unlike anything else on the market.
aurora produces a fully uniform look using a 60 LED array, which matches
most Xenon maps for an OEM look and are very bright - these can even be
seen in daytime. You will immediately know another vehicle with a set after
yours are installed.
