April 30, 2012

Do you look at the tires on a car when you are in a parking lot? Modern Tire Dealer Editor Bob Ulrich does.

The car was a 2010 Camaro SS. The tire was a Continental ExtremeContact DWS. "Waitaminute," you might be thinking. "Continental isn't original equipment on the Camaro? What gives?"

Indeed, the set of staggered-size Continentals were replacement tires. The OE vs. replacement scenario intrigued Ulrich, which gave him the idea for his latest blog.
