Thanks for the article

Thank you , Frank,

For showing me that article. It's hard to know for sure what the effect is unless you measure it yourself. I personally did not notice any change on my last tire replacement.

I think the author forgot to mention an important point. When you get the new tires, you will probably drive faster--if you keep the speedometer at the same position as before since the tire diameter is greater. This change in speed would have a greater effect on mileage than the effect from having thicker tread.
