      I have a spare set of wheels with winter tyres on them (Vredestein Wintrac Xtremes) that I've been using for the past few years.

      I'm trying to decide whether it's worth keeping and using them for...

      This is cool. :thumbup:

      I've been running a similar little CAN-integrated box in my car for a few years now. It takes some of the usual diagnostic info, plus a couple of auxiliary inputs (I have...

      This is actually quite a representative test of how these vans are driven in real life. There's a reason why the 'white van man' stereotype exists. :D

      I would not discount a seized caliper piston just because you can move them manually without trouble.

      Earlier this year I had to replace my front brake calipers because of seizing pistons. I was...

      Earlier this year I drove my car around for a couple of weeks with no carpet, insulation/deadening or back seats due to some ongoing electrical work.
