    That's why racers call it 200 mph tape.

    My utter cheapness at spending the $65 for new mounting brackets led me to test this theory myself and I'm "proud" to say that more than a year later and through a Chicago winter... it's still holding strong!

    The stuff is not over rated.

    ETA: Wash those front wheels and rotate the tires!

    If winning was easy, then the losers would be winners.
    I wish I was the man my dog thinks I am.

    I'm sure that's just a daily driver. We all have them. Something we can take any where and not worry about them. :D

    It's got 110k miles and...

    Both front power window motors = dead
    Rear defrosters = dead
    AC/Heater blower only shoots out of the front (no top/bottom)
    Center console lights = life of their own (work when they want to)
    Rubber trimming around doors falling off

    Don't know how much else my G-Ride has wrong :o but darn powertrain still going strong...

    About the rims/tires, Steel Wool will make them, shine like new!!! Once I have a weekend open I'll change the brakes and rotate tires though... Has Drum brakes in the rear and I HATE those...
