@user2153235, this question is receiving "close as unclear what you're asking" votes. You might want to review the tour to get some specific guidance. For example, one thing that's missing here is a specific question that can be answered succinctly.

What question are you actually asking? It's not clear from the paragraphs above. FYI, engine braking gets brought up with regularity. For example: mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/4340/57, mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/1758/57, mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/3600/57, mechanics.stackexchange.com/q/1210/57

comment Slow Accleration And Moving
It's hard to tell if you have one problem or two. Are you saying that, when in gear, the engine rpms are rising fast even though the car doesn't accelerate? What specific make, model and transmission of car are you asking about?

comment Wheel stuck or fused to drum
If you reread the original question, the asker is trying to find out how to get the wheel off, not how to prevent the problem in the future.

comment How to maintain a car's exterior?
Remember that rust is two things: oxygen + something to oxidize. Wax and paint don't rust. Not everything oxidizes the same way, though. For example, my aluminum hood is never going to rust away no matter how many paint chips it gets.

"she'll still be attracted to it in 6 years": preach it, brother! I'm planning to wash the wife's brand new car in the rain on Wednesday for specifically this sort of reason. I'm sure the entire neighborhood will be shaking their heads at the crazy man out there washing cars in a raincoat. :-)

You'd have an even better answer if you made use of the Tire Rack page: tirerack.com/tires/tiretech/techpage.jsp?techid=33

Changed the other radius to diameter (didn't want the wrong answer hanging out there).

comment What are the side effects of using the wrong tires?
The ride might also be marginally rougher due to the decreased air volume.
