Hello,

I'm looking for a set of all season or summer tires with rims for a 2016 Smart.

Front 165/65 R15

Rear 185/65 R15

 

I haven't been on here for about 15 years.just got a 2016 Smart but it came with winter tires. Also had some questions about a few things like what is this in the pic. It's not in the operators manual. It's in my front windshield. Got alot of glare, sorry.

Vredestein Quadrac-5 is what I run on my Canada one CDI. A true all season tire and I have run them for a few years now with no problems.  I don't take the car out in the winter so can't comment on the winter performance they brag about, but it is comforting to know that if I ran into snow along the way they are rated for it.  I bought mine from Flying Tiger as I trust him with most of my involved maintenance.  He didn't have your size listed so just gave a quick internet search and found them fairly easily.

Welcome back by the way.

Thanks, I'll look harder in my area. I'm in southwestern Ontario but I'll keep that brand in mind.

Any idea what that thing is in my dash?

Not the foggiest. Looks like something fancy was mounted there.  The CDI's don't have anything that close to the window.

Looks like a mount for a fleet company vehicle , tracking GPS monitor for kms traveled path taken, time used. that sort of thing.

Hat would make sense, in my research ihsve found the the previous company that owned my car was a car share called Car2go. Which also explains the dirt left when they took the vinal wrap off around the edges.

That mount was for the car2go card reader (scanner)  :)
