With that many miles/day on the open road, it's worth investigating.

I'm also kicking around the idea of a belly pan and maybe blocking the grill
(as a "Car guy" I'm a bit hesitant when it comes to limiting the coolng system)
the tires on my stock 6 spokes are nearing the end of there life
and I got a line on a set of Honda 14" steelies with new tires on them
if the price is right, I'll probably pick them up next week
and maybe a set of disk hubcaps in the next month or so
