It turns out tire choice was more important than any wheel covering
That's pretty much a given

When I put the mirrored moon discs on my Insight I already had excellent LRR Bridgestone Potenzas tires on it, I did it mostly for the look - the moon discs did make the car look way cooler and they got random strangers to stop and ask about it, which in turn got me talking to people about ecomodding

In reality they also got me to work even harder at hypermiling - the car looked like it should do better with them on it so I drove it better if that makes sense
