They are only 1.8% taller than stock. Remember the second number is the percentage of the width. But, yes, mileage went down a bit, but it seems like it's mostly the absolutely crazy weather we had. Tons of snow, lots more idling warming up the car in the parking lot at work while I cleaned the windows, scraped ice, snow, etc.What seemed very notable about your fuel economy is just how much you fuel economy has dropped since installing the 205/55/16 tires, but then I realized that these tires are 5% taller than the stock 195/55/16 tires, so that would account for 1.6 mpg of the 3.2 mpg drop you have been seeing since the installation of the wider snow tires.
So is the actual 1.6 mpg drop a result of the tires or the bad weather you have been driving in?
You are out of control! That's awesome. I rolled 13k the other day and thought I was kicking some tail. You are doing some serious driving!We'll have to start the 20,000 mile club soon.
Excellent. Start the 20k mile club thread as soon as you get there. I'm not sure I'm going to be able to keep up with your pace. I've only been doing under 3k a month pretty consistently lately. Not doing near the driving I used to.Sherman hit 19,000 miles last night. Awwww....he's growing up. LOL. :thumbsup:
I'll start the 20k mile club soon!
