What is tire speed rating?

A tire’s speed rating indicates the optimal speed that the tire can safely maintain over time. The speed rating system was developed to help control the safe performance of tires at standardized speeds. A tire’s certified speed rating is given a letter from A to Z, ranging from 5km/h (3mph) to above 300 km/h (186 mph).

What’s the difference between the old and new Chevy Equinox?

The new Equinox appeared to be more “car-like” as opposed to the previous generation. Chevy replaced the old 3.5L V6 engine with a new 2.4L I4. Obviously, this led to massive fuel economy gains, the new standard Equinox got seven more mpg than the last, for a combined mpg of 26.

Are there any problems with the Chevy Equinox?

For starters, it received an average of over 550 complaints per model year, according to the NHTSA. A common problem for all Equinoxes equipped with the 3.4L V6 is the lower intake gaskets failing where Chevy failed to realize that their newest DexCool super-coolant was eating at the intake manifold gasket.

When did the Chevy Equinox V6 come out?

When Chevy released the Equinox in 2010, they did not just “set it and forget it”, they constantly modified it to make it better. The first change came in 2011 when Chevy made the 3.0L V6 E85 compatible. The 2.4L I4 would follow suit shortly thereafter in 2012 when they made it E85 compatible as well.

Do you need to replace all the tires on an AWD vehicle?

Replacing just one or two tires on an AWD vehicle could cause unnecessary wear and tear on your drivetrain, or confuse the traction control system to think that you are frequently losing traction. A new tire is larger in diameter than one of the same brand, type and size that’s part way through its tread life.
