Re: What did you put off doing to your P2 Volvo today....... Now Sticky!

The Blizzaks are top winter tires but are known for wearing scary fast in warmer weather over 10C-15C (50F-60F). It also seems as they wear down they loose their grip well before the wear limit marks. [/quote] That Is good to know. I did switch back soon after. It was just a really weird winter here.

Totally put off getting under the front end and figuring out what that clunk noise is when I take a hard slow RH turn.
I think it is the lower control arm bushings, and I think that it is contributing to the TCS light I get when I take that RH turn.
