I wouldn't go over... It probably wouldnt cause any harm, just once. But i wouldnt go over the oci limit anyway.

Looks like a good amount of tire manufacturing is moving back to North America: http://www.rubbernews.com/article/201404...p-billions-into However, in regards to low cost US-made tires, you can't have your cake and eat it too, as the article states:

Am I asking for trouble with 1250 more miles than the recommended OCI? I'm currently using PP 5w-30 with a Hyundai OEM oil filter. I get on it every once in a while, but mostly I just do a mild 25 mile commute to work and back.

Back to OP's original question: I don't think T6 is necessary in that car. Stick with a synthetic 5w30 and you will be fine. The VQ motors are not picky with their oil.

I like the idea of using one oil across the fleet. T6 will do no harm. You may lose an immeasurable amount of fuel economy compared to 10w-30, but who cares? T6 is a fine oil for diesel, gasoline, and OPE engines alike. It'll make your maintenance ea

The US is fairly temperate, and major cities plow fairly quickly. This makes the market very small for snow tires. Conversely EU countries are located at higher latitudes and some have regulations that require snow tires during X months.

Tire rack kind of lets you shop for tires by COO, but it does vary by the size of the tire even in the same model. Last year the only winter tire made in N. America at tire rack in 185/65R15, was a goodyear, and the larger sizes of the same model wer
