alloy wheels: not

Alloy wheels can dress up a vehicle nicely. But some tire salesmen try to sell these expensive items as fuel savers. Some may, and some may not save any fuel at all. But just because the wheels are made of an alloy material does not necessarily mean they will be fuel savers. And since they can be quite pricey, even if there is some fuel savings it is very unlikely to offset the added cost of the new alloy wheels.
