Oil - Tires Etc.
Hi - thanks to everyone for participating and answering these "newbie" questions. So, the owner for the last 5 years tells me he has been using Mobil One Synthetic in the 99 Esprit I now own. Another, knowledeable 4 cylinder Esprit owner told me that Mobil One is a no-no for his car. Is the same true for the 8 cyl twin turbo? Something about being "too slippery". He suggested, for his car, Valvoline racing oil or the equivalant. Does the same hold true for my 99 TT? After 5 years of Mobile One should I now switch to racing oil?
As an aside - finding tires that match (all 4 the same) for this car was not easy. Most of the kewl tires (Goodyear, Michlein Pilot etc) do not have tires in both front and back sizes. I ordered Nitto 05's and hope I like them. Would have liked the 555 but of course they are not available in both front and backs....
