Re: Winter's Coming - Let's talk snow tires

I purchased the Cooper Weathermaster WSC's and had them studded on the black Jeep steel wheels. Have the AT3s on the factory rims for the no snow time of the year.

Re: Grand Cherokee Recall - Brake Booster

Stopped by the local dealer today and got on their waiting list. No parts available yet, no part number assigned to the shield either. It seems to be a moisture/cold temperture situation.

Re: Brembo Pads

Most likely the pad is sticking in the caliper. If so, pads need to be removed or replaced and spend some quaility time cleaning up the calipers so the pads will move freely after lubing.

Re: brake dust/stained mags

Brake dust build up is the result of the friction makeup. If they're OE pads when was the last time the tires were rotated? The OE pads should be ceramic which minimize the appearance of brake dust.

Check for breakage, the connecting hose between the nozzles is a tick too short and puts stress on the nozzle nipples.

Re: Wiper Sizes - READ THIS BEFORE ORDERING...

The 2011 uses a 22" on the drivers side and 21" on the passenger side. I'm a long time ANCO user and their Contours work perfect on the windshield. Their AR12A work perfectly on the rear glass.

Re: Tires diff manufacture

Interesting point as new tires should have more tread (different outside diameter) than the old tires. It's not only a 4wd thing, but an ABS sensor reading as well.

Coking deposits accumulate on the intake valves no matter what fuel is used. It's a good idea to use Techron or a product that cleans the valves and fuel delivery system.
