    You should at least be able to charge for one hours work to give an opinion, as accounts and lawyers charge as soon as you walk into the office!😆😆😆🇦🇺

    In Germany we use the w rated speed

  6. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Rob Sinbob says:

    If you take the little cap off the end of the filter cap the torque is stamped in there IIRC. No it’s not a lot.

  7. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Kenneth Schilling says:

    I like watching your channel and Eric O's channel you two are great to watch it helps with learning how to repair many vehicles. A shout out to both you and Eric O.

    Yes peoples own ideas can be stronger than facts and common sense. Imagine their state of mind. Chuckle 😉 say no more!!!

  9. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Citizen Friendly says:

    Whats wrong with the last car. Needs wheel alignment and rotation, nothing is wrong. Thats that

  10. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars graham reid says:

    Great video but I do think you maybe left out the most obvious answer, tyre under inflation, I know they look ok now but it could be they actually put a gauge on them prior to visiting you, these low pressure warning indicators have made people lazy and tend to rely on them rather than physically checking, that can lead to a false positive. Really enjoy the channel.

  11. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Citizen Friendly says:

    All those chemicals sprayed 🤮

  12. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Peter Drake says:

    Should it be a completely new if you have changed some parts ,isn’t that how it works?

  13. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars toledotom57 says:

    I own a 2010 E350 mercedes-Benz W212 series and i got 75,000 miles on my tires. Improper air inflation and wrong tyre specs for this Vehicle or SUMMER Tires? These cars will eat certain brand Summer tires. Lucky to get 30,000 miles on them especially in a hot climate.

  14. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars LouisianaOutlaw says:

    Wtf was that lagg on the yota? Limp mode??

  15. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dog Gone says:

    Tire wear on the outside used to mean under inflation… Wear in the middle over inflation both will cause rapid tire wear.

  16. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! Just Me MrB says:

    See Ray, they got tired of you cutting through the parking lot and put that can in your way.

  17. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Gerd Looienga says:

    Here in Germany that car would not leave the shop without changing the tires. Unless on a towtruck. Simply because it is by law not roadworthy and not allowed on the road anymore. If you would give it back in that condition and something would happen with that car you as workshop would be held responsible.

  18. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Ian Wright says:

    You got me!!!

  19. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mrjoecamel says:

    My Mercedes recommends 28psi on the front and 32 psi on the rear. That in it self causes excessive tire wear.

  20. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Silva says:

    You depending on the tpms for the correct tire pressure will bite you in the ass every time…abnormal tire wear = putting a pressure gauge on them to rule out equal but low pressure

  21. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Edward Silva says:

    Where's your tire pressure gauge? those tires wearing on the edges points to under pressure running

  22. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Aaron Moody says:

    The merc driver wonders why hard driving is wearing out his tyres LOL I would have told him to improve his driving habits

  23. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dylan Skiba says:

    Man, I feel sorry for what happened with the Benz owner. Person didn't realize that the only problem with their car was them! Classic case of under-rotation / running on low pressure. Those tires were probably rotated twice in their lives and only inflated at every oil change (if that!)

    To your point though, even if they DIDN'T neglect their tires, they would be lucky to have gotten another 10k out of them, let alone 40. Treadwear warranties are an industry wide joke and I have no clue how tire makers get away with what they imply by advertising such ridiculous numbers. No tire is gonna last 70k miles without cords showing, and if someone ever proves me wrong I will gladly eat my dinner off the tires that do (right after I buy a set for myself!) I honestly hope they call up Yokohama for a warranty claim just so Yokohama can tell them what you and every other mechanic that looks at those tires already knows (fun fact, if you don't rotate your tires on time and check their pressure frequently, what little treadwear warranty they DO give you goes out the window lol).

    Anyway, long comment is long, but I hope your next day goes better! I still enjoyed this one! Keep it up!

  24. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Eric Theis says:

    LOL My eyes bugged out when you just shoved the dipstick down and hopped into the car to start it!

  25. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Sunbeam says:

    Won't the filter last longer if you leave the plastic on?🙂

  26. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars William Dawson says:

    People are strange they want what they want to hear no way what your telling them it is possible tires wear out as they heard somewhere that they never wear out or parts do not just break from age from driving the car ,it is the same in every field of work your just trying to sale they something they feel that do not need.

  27. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Dale Scribner says:

    Did you check the air pressure? You dint? It was too low and I don't care what the recommended is.

  28. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars phil1pd says:

    Keurig sucks. They barely put any coffee in those overpriced k-cups.

  29. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Mr. Tall-man says:

    Tire rotation every 5k miles with the oil change. Simple schedule and they'll last to or above the mile warranty.

  30. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars JUDGERAMBO says:

    Does that merc need w rated tires, Yoko tires doesn't seem OE, they could be the wrong tires.

  31. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Neal Fenster says:

    Could also be occasionally under inflated.

  32. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Operator713 says:

    Yup. You got me Ray. Well played, sir.

  33. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars mepadge says:

    I know a lot about tire wear but you just taught me a great deal more & how to better understand what I'm looking for when purchasing them. Of course my cousin owns a tire shop so I get a discount… he does question my driving pattern to better assess the tires for me then he'll give me 3 price points to choose from… I usually go for the middle. When he did my daughter's suv he did the same for her but when he found out she was driving over an hr to visit her bf every week & back he didn't give her much choice; he gave her the 1s that he'd put on his daughter's car if she was the 1 driving to where my daughter was weekly & he didn't charge her but $10 more per tire. We get at cost price vs retail & we don't have to pay to put them on or balancing… he saves us a great deal of $; even when we try to pay him for other services he refuses, like if he does a plug or changes the oil etc.

  34. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Hola! IntraTerrestrial says:

    And underinflation maybe on the Mercedes? For sure what you described is accurate, but it looks the same as underinflation too.

  35. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Con Torrisi says:

    Love your work. Love your videos. Can I suggest one other significant contributor to the tyre wear on the Mercedes, under inflation will wear the outside edges before the center. More air in the fronts would have increased their life in my opinion.

  36. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Matthew Moriarty says:

    That takes 6.4 quarts with a filter change…

    can't change anybody's mind that is not willing to listen and change

  39. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Robert Hackenberg says:

    I would complain too if I had to drive around in a rav 4 with 200k miles.

  40. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Brirend says:

    Heavy vehicle + soft compound tires + an aggressive driving style = frequent trips to the tire store.

  41. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars John T. says:

    Totally agree with your summation of the tire wear on the Benz Ray, soft compound and spirited driving explains the premature wear. Maybe if he slowed down when cornering, and didn't turn the wheel while stationary his tires would last longer. Turning the wheel once moving removes load and decreases wear.

    Can't please everyone

  43. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Xombi Xombi says:

    Why did canister oil filters return? They were a PIA in the 50's cars. Good vid thanks

  44. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Troy Balster says:

    As far as tires go have a lady that goes to our shop that religiously gets her tires rotated and it shows. She been running the goodyear weatherready and been getting 70 to 80 k miles per set. Its normally rated at 60k. She put 65k miles on it last year and needs tires again. They do alot of uber and stuff and put tons of miles on thier car.

  45. Avataaar/Circle Created with python_avatars Justin Sposito says:

    I learned from installing batteries in older Toyotas that they tend to run alil rough for a few dozen miles and then it returns back to normal. That may be some of the rough running they feel
