I have an early '06 RRS HSE purchased in Oct '05. Now the OEM Conti CrossContact UHP are due for replacement after 33K miles. What are better alternatives to the stock OEM wheels for mostly urban/ highway driving?
How do I find out if my RRS is equipped with TPMS?
Also any recommendations on where to get them replaced in the South Bay, CA area (Mtn. View, Sunnyvale, Santa Clara)?

Thanks,

Mike

you're just now getting to 33k? 8-0=

if the valve stem is metal instead of plastic, you've got TMPS.

re: tires - boy that's a tough one. pirelli scorpions or goodyear silent armor seem like good starting choices. i end up searching online and taking it over to america's tire company to price match. and yes they'll price match online stores. best value is their warranty. one free replacement and it's paid itself off.

Thanks for the reply,
Local commute and my wife doesn't drive it much beyond that. There are weeks when we bike more miles than we drive.
Which discount tires in the bay area you used?

I checked my valve stem and it's black rubber......I think it is a good thing that I don't have TPMS given the extra care it needs.

i've been taking multiple cars to the one in union city for years since i live nearby. no complaints. i've popped my head into the one in santa clara on brokaw a few times to price compare and they seem just as helpful.

saw in another post you made it over to cerrone's. hope tony and frank treated you well. i'm headed in soon for my final inspection before my LR assured extended warranty expires next month.

I thought all RRS had TPMS as std. even if it had TPMS - I believe it will not affect the tire you get.

A quick search on tirerack found these General Grabber UHPs to have good rating and price. I hear General and Continental are the same company, just made in different factories. I wonder if anyone here have any personal experience with these?

I have the General Grabber UHP's on my RRS, no complaints. Tread seems to be lasting longer than the OEM Contis did.

They're great summer tires, and work halfway decently in the snow.
