nother n00b here

hey everyone, just signed up after reading the 65+ efficiency mods. I found the site by google searching weather or not lighter wheels/tires will help my fuel economy enough to make up the cost difference.

Since I do mostly highway driving it looks like the answer is no, so now I'm going to figure out what I can do to make a difference. I get pretty good mileage for my car just by driving slow and coasting when I can. I really wish I could re-gear the trans to cruise at a lower RPM on the highway but I already have the lowest final drive and 5th gear available.
