  1. Can I use either P205/55 R16 or 215/45 R17 tires for my 2005 GT V6?

    Wheel, Tire, & Suspension
    I am trying to purchase new tires for my 2005 GT V6 and I am having trouble figuring out which tires I should purchase. The current tires say 215/45ZR17 which were installed by a mechanic a while back. I put my cars info on Costco, Goodyear, and Michelin's website and they all recommend P205/55...

    Tiburon General Discussion
    I had my car detailed today, brought it home, parked, and came inside. About an hour later my fiance came home and asked me why my lights were still on. I went out to check, and sure enough, the running/parking lights were still on (headlights were off). Until today, all exterior lights would...
  4. Tiburon v6 auto, shiftronic not working.

    New Member Introductions
    Hello, My v6 Tiburon GT auto for the longest time has had the shiftronic unusable. That's the way I bought it so I'm unsure what might have caused this. Whenever I move the shifter into the "manual" mode, it just remains in drive and upshifting and downshifting have no effect. I'm trying to get...

    Tiburon General Discussion
    I recently installed the Borla Exhaust system for my 07 Tiburon GT along with a K&N Cold Air Intake. Sadly, I have an automatic, but when I use autostick, the car will go completely through first gear, hit second, and then immediately shift into third. This obviously kills performance and it...
