All-seasons and Mpg

First off my car get great mileage, but will switching from oem LLR tires to performance all-seasons effect mpg? Honestly it gets about the same average. They have Falken 912's on sale and are great tires as they we're on my last car.

Agree. I see about the same with mine. I had the factory Continental 195/60/15's, switched to my 17'' wheels with 225/45/17 General G-Max AS-03 and lost 1, 2 mpg tops. Definitely worth the traction to me. Now I know I can grip the road with confidence.

I just bought me a set of said Falken 912's. Somewhat feels like i'm draging something but that's just the newly all seasons being "Sticky" lol. After 3+ years rollin on LRR's, that's what it feels like. Guess it's been awhile.

Anything heavier and bigger stickier is going to lower the MPG. I have three sets of wheels and they are all about the same although about 2 MPG lower than stock. 17x7 Ion redline wheels with 225/45/17 Kumho Ecsta 4X for the winter, 18x7.5 SS/TC wheels with Conti DWS tires 225/40/18 and 18x8 FP01's with BFG g-Force Sport COMP-2 tires 235/40/18.
