    Shelter In Place

    TP is the least of anyone's concern. I was just joking around a little but in reality there's nothing to joke about. It is disturbing to me people who aren't taking this thing seriously. NC goes on lockdown tomorrow and I'm glad for it. And that tomato beef looks mighty damned good.

    Shelter In Place

    I've been pretty much holed up since the first of March with only a couple trips to the grocery store. Lucky enough to live in a county where they have shut down access to all but residents. We are not on official lockdown. Can't figure out why people are complaining about this "social distancing" thing. Hell, I've been practicing social distancing most of my adult life, with people in general not being my favorite species of animal. I do miss the toilet paper though.....😁

    What wheels fit 2010-2013 TransitC USA

    Both you and Don are correct. Two sites that give very good info on this subject: wheel-size.com tiresize.com

    What wheels fit 2010-2013 TransitC USA

    A 2017 Focus calls for 235/40/18 whereas 2010 TC says 205/65/15. The difference in those two sizes is the 18" tire is .1" shorter (dia.) but 20mm (3/4") wider. Shouldn't cause any rubbing issue at least not with that exact size. I just picked 2017 Focus out of the air because you weren't specific.

    Modify or Replace Driver's Seat?

    No, just may not want to go up two inches. Maybe one inch. The length of the stock bolt is the starting point for determining the length of the replacement bolts. I cannot locate my Torx bit at the moment, otherwise I'd go ahead and pull one out to measure. Perhaps I should be a little more organized but the Torx bits are something I rarely, rarely use. At least not that large. All that (unnecessary) crap around the instrument cluster can make it hard to see the speedo and such at different angles.

    Modify or Replace Driver's Seat?

    Nobody has mentioned the length of the stock bolt.

    Perhaps you should have gone 80-85 mph so the momentum would have gotten you the last 2 blocks. 😁

    Your choice of tire size is going to determine if you have a rubbing issue (not the wheels). What size tires were you considering? You haven't mentioned that.

    Modify or Replace Driver's Seat?

    I'm trying to figure out what this "tank trip" reading is. "Miles to empty" is one of the few things I use on the info display and even that rarely when I'm trying to stretch to where I know the gas is cheapest. It does automatically adjust when you put gas in, no reset required. Maybe the two are the same thing?

    2010 XLT Slammed

    I like the idea of everything in white but then again all the black lower trim is a personal pet peeve of mine. But....it isn't my van so you do it the way YOU want it and I'm certain it will be spectacular!

    2010 XLT Slammed

    Will you keep it white or do you have something else in mind?

    Original tires do not fit TC ?

    There "should be" a sticker inside the drivers side door well that tells you the exact size and load range of tires that the van came with. The BRAND of the tires matters only in personal preference or opinion.


    And there is also such a thing as a Lemon Law. Under the law of most states, for a vehicle to be considered a lemon, the car must 1) have a "substantial defect," covered by warranty, that occurs within a certain time after purchase, and 2) continue to have the defect after a "reasonable number" of repair attempts.


    I don't find the menu to be exactly intuitive and have to commit to memory of the sequence only. Mostly I just stay out of there. Couple weeks ago I actually got hung up and it would not let me back out. Had to stop the truck, switch off the ignition to get it back to the default screen. PITA.

    This is the biggest issue I have had with my "backup assist system".
