Re: Reshod/Duratrac 275/65r18

You must be lucky. I tried 275X65X18 BFG AT KO. They rubbed both in front of the tire at normal ride height. Now have 265X65X18 and they clear but are close.

Re: 2014 jeep grand cherokee oil reset

Tried again the next day and it worked first time.

For those of you where it doesn't work, keep trying.
