It has been discussed. MOOG makes a repair part. On mine, I saved the $$ of buying a part and had the alignment tech open up the adjustment slot so the camber could be set at a value that made the tires "flatter" on the road. My car is alot quieter now. The MOOG part has been discussed and a part number was shown. Toyota won't admit to any problem-EVER! This is my last Toyota. I got the biggest runaround ever by them. I have 45 years heavy duty truck repair and a racing background even longer but just played dumb like Peter Falk in the Columbo TV series. They will never get a penny from me again. Rick in Ohio

#263 of 265 Tire 60 series for 2009 Matrix base/touring
Feb 21, 2012 (12:56 am)
Is 205/16"/60 tire are okay? I am planning to change my tire, so far the ODO is 100200kms.
It seems the 55 series is noisier than 60.

I am looking for suggestions on tires for my mom. She has a 2009 Matrix base model. Front wheel drive, no traction control, and from the few times I have driven it, a very touchy throttle. She loves the car but is scared of it in winter driving. She says her old geo prism would run circles around the Matrix in 1/2 inch of snow. Any thoughts? and thank you . First time user in here and after reading the discussions i am questioning how good her little car really is.. lol
