That's 5 liters, not quarts; and it's being sold in England, not Walmart. And they're charging $176 for it, not $25. If it's even real.

Mobil 1 doesn't make 0w-40 ESP in 5qt jugs. That's why you haven't seen it, and that's why I advised that this information is not correct. You can get the regular (non-ESP) M1 0w-40 there, but not...

255/45/19s and 285/40/19s are both 28.0" tall, so they match in that respect. Those are both pretty tall, but they should still fit. In both cases, the rim widths you have are within the...

That's odd that you went faster on GYs than RE71Rs. But if responsiveness is your priority, I think the Falken wins out over the Nankangs, and Yokohama doesn't really have a great size for our cars....

I could be wrong, but I think the Axxess AXDSPL-GM30 (https://axxessinterfaces.com/product/AXDSPL-GM30) will work on a Bose-equipped car. I would definitely call them to discuss it first, though.
