  1. smart Wheels & Tires
    I am looking to replace my 2008 ForTwo wheels & tires with (guessing here) all-around 195/50 winter tires. I have 94k on these tires (still have tread, no uneven wear, never been balanced/aligned) but would like a bit better handling in MD snow/ice. Not looking for 'fancy/chrome/wow-factor' -...

    Hello everyone, Purchased a 09 Pure, black/black, last Wednesday. Today I put my 1000th mile on it! I averaged 46 mpg between the 2 and 1/2 tanks and am excited to see what lies for the future. Any recommendations for snow tires? Should I get rims for my OEM tires? Many more questions but I...

    Had a TPMS problem indication in the 2005 Mercedes S-class and took it into the dealer (also local smart center). They indicated that 2 of the TPMS had 'reached limit' and one more was about to (6 months left). (Fourth TPMS was replaced a couple of years ago due to problem). Seems there is a...

    Hey everybody! As you may or may not have read, I'm going to attempt to get Genius 15" rims from Smart Madness. Instead of ordering the staggered rims, I'm going to request the rear size rims all the way around to get the 2" lip for all four. This will allow my tires to look more aggressive than...

    Going to order my Smart pure, blue with silver tridon, when I get back from deployment. I plan on moving the rear wheels to the front, saving fronts for spares, and getting two new rear OEM rims, 15X5.5. One. Can I remove the TPMS from the old fronts and replace it with a standard valve...

    Hi! This is my first post. I've had my Passion (and she's still my passion) since May of 2008. There are 14,000 miles on the odometer, including a fully loaded road trip from Florida (home base) to New Jersey and back (great fun). My concern: another trip North is impending. How many miles...

    Interesting investigative journalism piece on retailers selling 6-12 year old tires as "new" even though they've been shown to be dangerous after 6 years. Sure, no smarts appear, but since smarts use tires I think it is appliccable. In 5 years when you are changing your tires, be sure to read...

    hey guys, I came across this forum a few days ago as I will be getting a 451 soon and will be looking to change the wheels. I have read ALL the threads regarding wheels on here but still cannot figure out what size 3 to 5 stud adapters to use! The alloy wheels I want to put on my smart car...

    I live in Massachusetts and drove a big SUV until my Smart car. It had big beefy tires on it and now I can't seem to find anything except the Pirelli's. And, after reading the forum I don't see anyone recommending them. So, what's a "new" Smart owner going to do? :confused:
