Had to have 2 tires replaced due to wear. Tire shop is required to replace the front tires by law here and did so by using manufacture recommended size instead of size of all the other tires. For some reason the old tires and the 2 on the rear were larger than the 2 new ones. The difference was not noticeable by looking. Within 2500 miles it caused major transmission problems.
