    Are you content with 19” Toyos or replacing them ASAP?

    I have 150 miles on new 19" LX25's. Much quieter then A36, smoother on road cracks and better grip. Steering response is a little bit slower, so I turn in a bit quicker to compensate. Overall very happy.

    I think the additive warning is a general disclaimer, not all treatments are to be used. Lucas cleaner is also safe.

    How to increase HP on my 2019 CX-5?

    When you floor the pedal you need to really push it all the way down to activate what I call The Button. It takes full flooring and then there is extra acceleration.

    Toyo A36 in snow

    Ok in snow, beware of rear end kicking out going fast around 90 degree turns. Lifting off throttle brings it back in.

    Techron is a solvent. If there is the possibility of of oil dilution I dump the oil soon there after.

    fuel cleaner

    Lucas fuel treatment every 2500 miles and Techron 500 miles before oil change. Don't rant without first trying.

    After the ECU flash recall my low speed hesitation seems to be gone. I am getting 1 MPG more too. I wonder if the reflash is more than just for the rocker issue.
