Camgirl,
Welcome!
If you have tires coming due, think about increasing the diameter a bit. THis will lower the final rpm when cruising thus give you better mpg.
For example: I run 255/45/18 on stock rims. The fctory size was 245. both tires weigh the same so It was a net gain by lowering the final rpm. I am on the road so every litlle bit helps.
Have to get a scangauge or some sfter market device that keeps you focused on mpg. Really makes a difference. My car has a factory mpg screen and i would useit. But having hte scangauge takes it to the next level.
