    Thank you for the offer but I just checked the map and from my place to downtown Oshawa, I should drive almost 100 Km or more... that means over $20 of gas... it is cheaper to go to my mechanic located at 1.5 Km from my job.

    It will always be a pleasure to meet in person though
    I totally understand. Where are you located in Mississauga? Maybe you need to come over when a brake job or something more labor intensive is needed.

    Not today but friday night after supper...

    Swapped out the studded winters for a shiny new set of 235/60R17 BFGoodrich Advantage T/A Sport's and serviced the brakes.

    Got a good lesson in how tires are actually measured and the difference that can come from different engineering of the tire. While the sizing would indicate only a 10mm difference in width between the stock 225/65R17's and these 235's the actual difference in rubber on the ground is huge. Remember the width measurement is the section width (widest part of the tire, typically at the center of the sidewall), not the tread width. I spent a lot of time searching for something wider than 235 to fit the stock rims but in the end am very happy with these tires.

    Brakes looked great and I was actually starting to feel I was wasting my time taking them apart as everything was well lubricated and in good shape. I was actually quite pleased when I discovered the very last slider I took out covered in rust and very nearly seized. Nice when you know you've saved yourself a problem down the road with a little bit of maintenance.

    So we are at just over 8900km since we bought the van and still very happy with it.
