Re: Do you believe in K&N air filters?

I have used K&N FILTERS on my last 4 new F150 and I am using one now on my 2011 SHO. NEVER have had a problem.

Re: transmisson fluid

I just had my dealer flush my tranny at 30,000 with no filter change ( will change filter and fluid at 60,000mi. yes a flush with a machine requires 12 new quarts which the machine installs and you are all set.

Re: Tire recommendations for 2011 SHO?

when it comes to tires it's not how they look. It's how they check out and measure tread wear, plus don't wait for the car to tell you that you have a low tire that's really to late for safety reason.so lets check those tires and air pressure, and keep ourselves safe
