    And actually I had 225/35/18 Kumho Ecsta MX's on all corners. That car had a built suspension and brake setup, I had another set of Kosei's in 17's with Kumho Victaracers for auto-x duty. I flipped it because some ******nozzle in a minivan sideswiped me into a highway barrier at 70mph.
    225's? My dick is longer then those are wide. Haha.
    The bike is nothing more then circles turning circles, It's the human motor that makes it elegant.

    THOSE RIMS ARE FUGLY. No wonder why you flipped it, you probably have some cheap a$$ tires on this cheap a$$ rims. Wow.
    ... and I guess not enough downforce from that wing, eh?

    Meh... that, and nothing worse in ice and snow than a 35 series tire. May as well put a snow saucer under each corner.

    You need a set of winter shoes, son! 65 series steelie pizza cutters with Blizzacks.

    I'll bet that car sees a lot more ... you know, than your... you know!

    Heck, my and my wife's Audis both have 235s on em. Pretty standard for semi-sporty small cars.

    Klassy!!

    Ok Ron Jeremy. Thats the widest tire you can fit under a protege without rolling the fenders or hacking the inner fender wells. And being a 2400 lbs car on a tire thats as close to an R compound as you can get a DOT, they worked just fine. Maybe the 315's going under my current car would make you feel better?

    Good thing I live in a place that gets snow for 5 days maybe once every 10 years. And actually I had a set of the factory 17 inch racing harts with some cheapo depot cooper avenger all seasons that worked just fine for those rare snow days. Put it this way, we get so little snow that I daily drive my 02 camaro SS with z rated summer tires year round.

    Sweet! No dice on the trunk for me, do your rear seats fold down and allow more space or is that just in the trunk? That's the one thing that this car could use- folding rear seats.

    Thule raceway 3bike that I recently purchased seems to do a great job though.

    Aviator,
    Not on this model, but a W203 C55 has folding seats. There is no off the shelf reciever hitch available. Well there is one, but pricey. I can fit either my road bike, 29-er SS or 26-er SS, again with seatpost and wheels removed. I am not in favor of attaching a rear trunk rack because of the paint and what damage a rear can do.

    Yeah, I hear you there.

    Unfortunately it was my only option- I wasn't putting the 1 hitch that "sorta" works on an AMG and roof was out as my only intent of having a rack on this car is to be able to ride after work once the time changes - and a rack wouldn't get into the parking garage of my building.

    I'm very pleased w/ the raceway given the only contact point rests are in the recessed license plate well and then on the top of the trunk and there's a lot of surface area. And then of course the rubberized cables on top/bottom (but no sides).

    Re-spraying the trunk if it ever got scratched isn't that costly given I'm confident the worst that would happen is a scratch. Note - it comes off in under 90 seconds (and goes back on in the same) I DO know that leaving it on plus heat can warp - Thule mentions this w/ Merc's due to their thin bumper covers

    I'm pleased w/ the solution in that it's the best option out of a lot of not good options that leave a lot to be desired.

    I just purchased a 2008 GMC Canyon extended cab, with 6' bed. It's my first vehicle. No more borrowing sedans and minvans from my parents. I'm still considering different bike racking solutions. The bike is not secured in the picture below.

    I just bought this 3 weeks ago as a commuter car. 2012 Chevy Cruze 2LT RS, 1.4 turbo, 6 speed manual. It has averaged 35mpg on the first 2200 miles.


    Crap, I can't post pics yet, but in 7 more posts I will be able to

    They are defimately not a race car, but with the turbo and the 6 speed manual it still has plenty get up and go. Its hard to get much power and still achieve 40mpg. I traded in my crew cab z71 gmx on it that was getting 17mpg. I drive right at 100 miles a day.

    I'm with ya...I just bought a sonic with the same power train and it's got plenty of power for day-to-day and is a blast to drive. I also replaced a truck with my sonic and am glad for the 35mpg (city). Gas for that truck was killing me.
    whatever...

    Yeah im about to be in the same boat. My 350+hp camaro gets right at 19 around town and takes no less than 91 octane (though the e85 convert thought has crossed my mind). Chevrolet took a step in the right direction replacing the aveo with the sonic.

    Same engine choices

    My sister just got a Sonic. Both her and my dad compared it to the Cruze, and they both agreed that the engine (1.8 NA , auto in this case) felt much better in the smaller and lighter Sonic.

    I found the Sonic to be quite fun to drive. It's a little go-kart. After taking a look at other cars in the segment at the Toronto auto show, I found the Sonic to be much more desirable than many vehicles in its class.

    Here's our vehicles together. They match.
