Re: Goodyear Eagle RS-A Tires
After remembering my experience with the Mustang, I decided to do some investigation. I jacked up each rear wheel to see what I would find. As I thought, there is a slight problem with both rear brakes. I had the trans in neutral with the parking brake off. As I rotate the wheels there is an intermittant drag during about half the 360 degrees. In other words, the brake shoe is touching the inside of the brake drum only about half the time on each wheel. Normally the shoes should drag slightly in a consistant manner. I did not remove the drums but I would guess that there is some rust from sitting on the lot that will probably wear off eventually. I'm at 750 miles. If not I will address it at the first service period. I also checked the front discs and they were tight and even during a complete rotation.
