  1. For Sale
    I recently had a blowout and it was cheaper to replace all four rims aftermarket then to replace one damaged OEM rim. I have three spare rims (one is bent but still holds air) that I am trying to get rid of, if anyone is interested. On a side note, I blew out three tires in the last year alone...

    Recently I noticed off and on my rear brakes grinding , and now my back left rim is completely rusted and all my tires are new. Also where I live it doesn’t rain a lot or snow Any thoughts?

    I couldn’t find too many videos of a Gen 1, so figured I would post some from this weekend. Mods are a Whiteline rear sway, and some BfGoodrich Comp-2 A/S tires in the stock size. I’ve had the car for about a year and it is pretty much free from the gas savings commuting to school. I have been...

    I have owned this 2012 Chevy Volt for 160,000 km and have enjoyed a lifetime fuel economy of 2.8L/100km or 84 mpg. It is my 60km daily driver.:D Maintenance has consisted of 3 sets of tires, best wear and quiet are Nokian Entyre2.0 AS adequate in winter, 3 engine oil and air filter changes, 1...
  5. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    i am getting ready to replace the OEM tires on my '17 Volt Premier. Any suggestions for a good traction, decent ride tire? I do not drive a lot, so comfort is probably more important than tread wear. TIA!
  6. Generation 2 Volt (2016-2020)
    Hi - new to forum - just wanted to know if anyone has tried these tires. Walmart has them for about half of name brands (Continental, Michelin) and they Nokian claims they are engineered for electric cars. Thanks

    Any thoughts on which ones? I know, not the best tires possible, but I really like the convenience of having them rotated for free on a regular basis. And the stores are close, as compared to my dealer. But if they're really not a good (enough) buy for a Gen 1 Volt, I'll go elsewhere. TIA...

    I replaced my Goodyear Assurance tires with Hankook Kinergy ST tires. The tire size specified for 2016 Volt is 215/50/17r, but they installed 215/60/17r. I understand that the 60's will have the speedometer off by about 4 mph at 60 mph, which I can contend with. But how will it affect the...

    I've been following the running review of the older version of the Conti TC tires and as had been posted, Conti updated the tires Summer 2018. You can tell if you are getting the new ones by the word "tour" at the end. I just had a set of 4 put on last night. 3/4 of my OEM Goodyear Assurance...

    Hi , i have a 2017 volt and I am buying a set of winter tires and rims. I would just like to change the whole tire from summer tires to winter tires . I understand i need a new set of tmps for the winter ones so there is not error on the dashboard. Do you really need to install the tmps on the...

    I bought my 2015 Volt Base last week for $15k. The previous owner had driven it 18,400 miles on under-inflated (36 psi) tires that were never rotated, with the result that both front tires are prematurely bald on both edges. Therefore I need new tires. I gather that the OEM Goodyear tires...

    So I've been sifting through a lot of reviews and info on here to replace my 2012 Volt's tires. Based on what I've read, the Pirelli Cinturato P7 and Michelin Energy Saver A/S are 2 of the better ones but if any of the experts here wanted to lend me some advice or alternative tire suggestions...
  15. Generation 1 Volt (2011-2015)
    Since there is no spare tire, and the stock tires are weak and pop so easily, has anyone found another brand of tire that works on the volt and isn't so delicate? I know the tires were selected for certain reasons - noise, low rolling resistance, ride quality - but there are a ton of reports of...

    I finally decided to pull the trigger on a winter wheel/tire setup for my 2012. Ordered a set of steelies (X99715N) via Canada & ebay, $300. Ordered a like new set of TMPS sensors #22854866 via ebay $50. Looking at Blizzaks at Costco locally as they have $70 off right now.

    I read the tale of the man who blew-out his tire against a curb. I wonder what the anticipated lifespan of the factory-issued Goodyear tires should be. I have 24,000 miles on the original tires. Tread wear is even, but not much for winter traction. I plan to replace the set with Michelin...
  18. Chevy Volt Accessories and Modifications
    I searched for a while for a 20" package that could be applied to the Volt and not add a ton of weight. Most of the lighter wheels were designed to be used on race cars and were therefore not as visually appealing as I'd prefer. The other custom wheels that kept the weight low were usually...

    We've seen this concept before, even on the NASA moon buggy. Maybe it's getting a bit closer for car use? I just got an email from my John Deere dealer promoting these: Here's another application: And then there is this old promo for car use:
