  1. Larger Wheels

    You should see behind my shop!
  2. Larger Wheels

    A 15 could fit the rear but it is definitely no go in the front on a gen 2. I looked into it for mine , I was trying to increase the tire sidewall height to improve ride and protect the wheels.
  3. Oil

    You Cheat using LPG!!
  4. Wheel Size Question

    The computer is programed by people who do not think you should drive in the snow. With out the ability to shut off the Traction Control the TC would be almost useless in the snow. If the programmer was not constrained by the lawyers there could be a snow mode that would make the Traction Control into a competent positraction aide .
  5. Wheel Size Question

    Great conversation. There is one more thing. When out the door price is a top concern then the more parts you have the more chance for cheap parts that need replacement early.
  6. Transmission fluid change

    He is a good tech I have watched his videos before. I will still change the fluid at regular intervals to keep track of the fluid for metal debris. The fluid change does not take me very long and I have a good way of getting rid of the used fluid. I do not want to have to watch the how to change a Transmission Video that I am sure he has made!!
  7. Are these factory lug nuts?

    Great. Brandport.com is a very nice web site
  8. Are these factory lug nuts?

    The Important thing is the conical seat being the same as the wheel . The non capped Acorn style nuts will have a smaller OD than the OEM Capped nuts. If you live up in the road salt belt you want to remove the Capped nuts before you are stuck on the side of the road unable to change a flat tire.
  9. Are these factory lug nuts?

    Those are factory ford lug nuts . They are a steel nut with a stainless sleeve. If you do not want trouble later find a good aftermarket Chrome replacement . The steel nut rusts under the sleeve making the nut very hard to remove.
  10. If the ECU was programmable to take into account the tire size difference then the tire size difference would be not much of an issue.
  11. The TPMS on the gen 2 Gives much more information than the ABS system . This has good point and bad points. With the right in car set up you can check the pressure and location of a soft tire. The 2014 TC does not have that , instead you get the its time to panic light. Quite annoying!!
  12. The steel wheels are about $60.00 new from a place like Tirerack, use that as a guide. In my case I had factory alloys , when I put a set of winters on I looked into steel wheels. As it turned out Tirerack had a nice looking set of Alloys for $75 .00 as a close out. I now have two sets of Alloys and no hub caps.
  13. Autel makes both rubber and metal stem TPMS Programmable sensors at a reasonable price. You don't have a problem there
  14. I suspect that You could Get the wheels and brakes from Ford EU or Ford UK. It would not be Cheap.
  15. Winter Tire Thread

    I live on a dirt road that tire might have interesting balancing issues. I have to say I am not a big fan of studs.
  16. Winter Tire Thread

    Spelling was never my strong suit. I will work on it
  17. Great that is a Very different direction. there are a lot of great lite weight trailers that you can pull. Good luck, check in once and a while!
  18. Nice Report !! You have had a great trip.
  19. Van wrapping fails, again

    I did they were great
  20. Van wrapping fails, again

    Probably don't want to use that van in the states at the moment!
  21. 2014 TC Rear Blower Motor

    I will have to check is out, I have had no issue with the print quality when I have printed pages to take to the shop to get hand prints on.
  22. Winter Tire Thread

    Nokian makes very good winter tires, The Fins know how snow tires work.
  23. 2014 TC Rear Blower Motor

    Then the manual information I purchased as a PDf down load must come from the same place because the Illustrations and wiring information is the same. If you get the Deluxe edition you get some hyperlinks with more info.
