Autocross tire/wheel question – Consumer question

So I have an opportunity to buy a stock set of wheels for a good price (2017 brz). Is it worth springing the extra money on aftermarket wheels or can I just put on re-71's on and still be competitive in c-street?

Reliability on older VW’s – Consumer question

I'm looking for a new car, and older VW's, especially Golfs, really appeal to me. They have a sort of timeless look and just seem quirky and funny. However, the fact that any golf/Jetta between 1980-1995 has many kilometres in it and that I live in Canada where it often snows and the roads are …

An Anecdotal Bitch Fest About Homeless – Consumer question

Preface: I'm generally pretty dispassionate about Portland's homeless problem. I see both sides of the spectrum – these people suck, but they're also people. They need stuff.

Impulse buy today… – Consumer question

Just bought a set of 18×8 RSe10's in Satin Gunmetal with some 235/40r18 Continental ExtremeContact DW's to go along with them.

I've been scoping out this bike for awhile, and have only hesitated to buy it because I am looking for something that I can run 32c tires on. It seems like this bike might be able to, but Nashbar support is telling me 28c would probably be the max. I don't know if that's the …
