A certified Honda tech that my dad knows will be adjusting the valves. Seems too precise for me just to go at it with my fairly limited mechanical know-how. It'll be less than $200 and I should be able to watch him do it so I can learn how for any possible future valve adjustment.

What's the best winter tire to get for the Insight? Should I get all-season tires as winter tires, or get actual winter tires? What do y'all have experience with that works well but doesn't drop the MPG as much? Hoping to get a set mounted to my HX rims for the Insight after the semester finishes up.
