Yep, simple, cheap and work great. I even had them triggered by a tab on the bcm when I had factory remote start.

tinfoilhat Plan for today was front + rear brakes and oil change...

Ended up getting the front brakes done and oil done. Fucking caliper slide bolt was seized up and rusted. Took way to fucking long to get it out.

Also tried Amazon 0w20 full synthetic this time around. Lets see how it is. Engine seems to not mind it.

There is a Bridgestone that is an OEM tire but I donít think itís as good as the Dunlop. Wanted to keep runflats on the car so there were limited choices.

Did some shopping on yahoo auctions here and found a local set that was never installed and made in October 2018. Got them shipped to my house and then put all of them in the car (one in trunk and 3 in the seats, lol) and took it to the local shop yesterday. They charged me about $350 for everything including disposal fee, nitrogen fee, etc, etc. Guy there is a perfectionist.

Good news is that I saved around a grand for the trouble and it was definitely time to get the new ones on! Down to or past the wear indicators on all of them and the inside of the driver's side rear tire was toast - both steel and fiber were hanging out. There's a off ramp on the highway on the way home from work that I will regularly attack and I think it caused it.

Bad news is now it needs a set of pads and rotors.

Z28Camaro From the looks of that bad one it almost appears that there was some delamination or significant event that carved the corner down. Alignment has been checked regularly. Probably would not have lasted much longer.
