    20" chrome clad wheels

    I purchased a set of 20" chrome rims on here last spring in mint condition with tires that didn't need to be replaced right away for about $850/900. If the tires are decent, a lil more is reasonable, IMOP

    Hail Damage

    So a hail storm with 1/2-3/4" hail came through on Tuesday night and I never even noticed dents until I washed the cars today. The Edge had the following dents: Hood: 6+ Roof: 40+ Trunk: 0 Drivers Side: 15 Passenger Side: 2 The wife's 2005 Honda Accord faired much better as it was blocked from the side by the Edge but she had: Hood: 0 (that I could find) Roof: 28+ Trunk: 8 Drivers side: 6 Passenger Side 2 Is there a magic number where they would replace the roof or just pop them all out? I put the claim in for the Edge but I'm waiting to see how it goes before I make the claim for the Accord. The problem I see is that if we ever trade the Honda in, it is pretty worthless with the hail damage. Of course, I cannot live with the dents in the Edge and it will be fixed, no matter the cost. I've known some friends whose cars were totaled after getting hailed on but I don't believe we've come even close to that threshold. Thoughts, comments, experience, advice, all appreciated. -Mickey

    Howling Pirellis

    You should never pay $300 a tire, going rate should be ~$150. Tire Rack or Discount Tire Direct. I got 4 20" Pirellis delivered to my door on a special for under $600 last summer plus a $60 gift card.

    Door ajar malfunction

    Did you report it to Ford yet? I posted instructions on a similar name Topic. (sorry I don't have time to find it right now) I really think if enough people complain we could get it covered under warranty and some people would be able to get reimbursed. Good luck
  10. Yes, I'm the proud owner of these rims

    Replacing front Grill/ Paint or no paint

    Put my unpainted grill on the first month at 30K and am now at 70K. I'm very pleased with how it has held up w/OUT being painted. Wash it often and wax it too. I think it looks great w/the EGR bug guard as well. You can always paint it later. Good Luck

    Scorpion STR vs STR A

    Hey guys, I know that there is a majority of people that dislike (well, Dingo hates) the Pirellli Scorpions but I got a very good deal of $510 (discount tire direct, instant $50, then $70 gift card) for 4 of them and I took the chance. I got a used set of Limited rims and definitely needed 2 new times w/in 10K (would have approached $350/400 for just 2) but with the deal only for 4 only a lil more I pulled the trigger. I noticed that I have the STRA's on my Edge but I ordered STR's. I noticed this on the Tirerack page: The Scorpion STR A and Scorpion STR tires are Pirelli's premium Highway All-Season tires that were designed to deliver the Stability, Traction and Ratings (STR) appropriate for today's light trucks by adapting their performance to the needs of crossover vehicles, sport utility vehicles and light duty pickup trucks. The Scorpion STR tires are designed to combine a quiet and comfortable ride along with ease of handling and year-round traction, even in light snow. The Scorpion STR's tread compound is molded into one of two similar, but slightly different symmetric tread designs. The tires featuring Pirelli's North American tread pattern are identified as Scorpion STR A tires, while those featuring their European tread pattern are simply identified as Scorpion STR tires. The Scorpion STR A tire's North American tread pattern features continuous shoulder ribs and narrower groves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a quieter, more even-wearing tire. The Scorpion STR tire's European tread pattern features lateral grooves through the shoulder ribs and larger grooves between all of the independent tread blocks. This type of tread design would tend to result in a tire with better hydroplaning resistance and wet traction. On the inside, both Scorpion STR tires feature twin, high- tensile steel belts reinforced with polyamide to provide strength and durability on top of a two-ply polyester cord body that helps cushion the ride. I was just curious if people had noticed a significant difference between the 2? Thanks.
  14. So as packing to move to middle of nowhere TX after a quick trip to Maui, I lose my set of keys to my 2011 Edge SEL w/3 button key. So all I'm left with is what I will call my "Valet" key. Knowing my luck, and Murphy's Law, I refuse to drive 1600+ miles with the wife following me while driving the moving truck and just one key between us when we have 3-4 stops along the way. So I get to Ford, explain to them I only have this one Valet key. Ok, $2X for another Valet key, $100 for programing, $60 if you want a 3 button Fob thing, I'm like ok as long as everything is under $200. Thought it was going to take an hour, 2 hours later, a new Valet key wont program and I wasn't willing to make a $120 bet (and neither were they) for a new 3 button key. So I hope things can work themselves out over the next 10 days while I'm away and the new 3 button key I got for $17 on ebay, I hope to program as long as I have 2 working keys. We shall see.
  15. Ford just left a message, they got the 2nd key to work. Crisis averted.

    2012 Sport Grill Paint & Replacement

    I, liking the matte black, got my grill from Levittown, in March of 12 and feel no need to take it off to paint it. Just my 2 cents. Good luck!

    Scorpion STR vs STR A

    After dropping off the car this morning for a TSB, I was surprised to check out the new Edges w/STR's and not STR A's. Guess its been my mistake all along.

    Scorpion STR vs STR A

    Dingo, In your experience, is there any difference between the STR and the STR A?

    Scorpion STR vs STR A

    fldgex Do you mind confirming that yours aren't STR A's? The A is easy to miss and not the easiest to read. Thanks man!

    Replace License Plate Bracket - new grille inserts?

    Front Grill

    Good luck on the grill. Here is what I did. Ordered an unpainted Matte Black grill from Levitown March of 12 and I haven't done anything to it. Standard road rash but if it to the point where it look sandblasted I will paint it and put a barrier over it. I left the chrome top to give to break up the black grill and the black paint. I'm still toying with the idea of wrapping the top chrome at some point. $100 and 2 hours and it went from a stock SEL to this. Good luck
