New Tires Coming Soon!!!
IMO i think the WK looks better with the wider and taller tires. My MPG went down about 1.5mpg average and when my speedometer says 60 i am actually going 65.
Thanks but I rather not deviate from what Jeep recommends for warranty reasons.
Also, thanks thex2 for the link. I guess when I mean "better", I mean smoother ride, better feel on the road at highway speeds, and how much it affects MPG. The link suggests go with a wider tire for what I feel is better. The wider tire here though is not as large I think as the link suggets.
I was hoping maybe someone else went from standard to optional and could tell me their results as well.
