  1. Why Is This Kumho Tire Marked "OUTSIDE"?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    I normally run about 30 PSI in the fronts on the STS. Now wondering if a bit higher PSI would also minimize wear on the outer tread. It already rides like a park bench in an earthquake so probably wouldn't be much worse.
  2. Why Is This Kumho Tire Marked "OUTSIDE"?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Here's a shot of the tread showing the asymmetrical pattern you mention. The two white lines go to the inside according to the "OUTSIDE" designation on the left sidewall. I see some subtle differences in the tread now that you mention it. Is the "turning response" you mention at highway...

    The "OUTSIDE" designation is seen in the pic at the end of the tire size.

    Sorry if this is a "dumb" question. I don't recall ever seeing an "outside" indication on a tire. These are a pair of new Kumho Solus TA71 for the front of my '08 STS RWD Northstar. They are nondirectional at least to my knowledge. For what it's worth they are replacing a pair of Uniroyal...
  6. Using Valvoline 5W-30 Synthetic in lieu of Mobil1 5W-30?

    Thanks for the feedback guys. Sounds like the oil change is way past due.
  7. Using Valvoline 5W-30 Synthetic in lieu of Mobil1 5W-30?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    Hey guys--This is for a 2008 STS Northstar with 35K miles. I ordered the Valvoline by mistake and wondering if any harm in switching brands. Is causing an engine to start using oil if switching brands an old wives tale? Haven't changed it yet. Thanks for any feedback. Edit: This engine has...

    Have you ever nearly wrecked while trying to dig your phone out of pocket when doing 80 in bumper to bumper traffic just to see the time?

    Anyone know of a cheap Chinese sticky or clip-on clock that will display the time in the dark? I bought one that claimed to have luminous hands. Not! P.S. As OP of this thread, I am just so stinkin' proud of 500 plus posts!!!!!

    Original poster here. Never thought my question would generate this many posts! It's weird to me that my original reason for disconnecting the battery was that the car was dead, simply dead with no electrical response whatsoever. I fixed this by disconnecting then reconnecting the battery...

    OP here. In addition to the clock issue, I'm also experiencing issues with seat and steering wheel memory or lack thereof. Wondering if these are related to the clock problem.

    It's beginning to sound like the older Iphones only in this case programmed to develop glitches after the vehicle reaches a certain age. :)

    Thinking back to the fifties and sixties, the clock was usually the first thing to quit working on any vehicle. Maybe this is just a case of deja vu all over again. :)

    Thanks again for you feedback, 69CHEVLRAG. I think the automakers have this planned obsolescence down pat! Somebody should design an aftermarket kit that replaces the entire computer/electrical system but just operates the essentials to get the vehicle down the road. Oh wait can we have...

    The clock adjust screen will come up after touching and holding for a couple seconds the clock area on the screen but none of the adjusting "buttons" are functional. This is happening after an issue last evening where the car would not start until after disconnecting and reconnecting the...
  20. 2008 STS--Jake Brake?

    Cadillac STS Forum - 2005 through 2012
    That may be what I'm sensing when letting off the gas for an approaching stop. The engine would tend to slow the car if the converter was locked down to a certain speed. Edit: Saves the brakes at least.
