Re: Recommendations for Snow Tires on the TH

Hakka 7 studded is arguably the noisiest studded tire I've ever used, and should you be inclined to hot rod your TH, have the ice speed record.

Been wondering about the comment regarding low humidity as well, given that water injection has been used for a long time for a power boost. Even the Oldsmobile had it.

Re: Tire Pressure for Towing

Aren't those all COLD pressures, where the max is 44 psi cold?
During heavy loads and high speed it can go above that as long as the tire is sound and the load is not atrocious.
