It'll throw off your speedometer. So unless you calibrate it, it'll most likely show a good increase in FE when you might be getting the same or just slightly better mpg.

And I think the tread life on those are low. I don't have one here to look at but the last time I saw a spare, it looked like it might last 4 months max.

I'll add that for city driving it would probably work excellent and might last all year.
