Well I normally run about 10% over max sidewall rating in summer, and run vehicle spec in winter. Not sure whether to call it winter or not as there two feet of snow on the ground since Thursday

I do not know what to call that, it snows here, but I think that we only have two feet at once every ten or twenty years.

When I live is semi arid, so normally we get 4-5 storms a year that are at most 2", this storm we got is far from normal, and in fact much of the state got as much or more snow in this storm than the annual average snowfall. About half is melted already so we may get fall still.

First fill up since purchase: over 400 miles, still had well over a quarter tank left, always filled up at 250 in the metro and that was nearly empty. It's a much larger tank than the metro but I really like having to fill up less often.

Last week I was running late pretty much every day, and so a lot of that tank was spent with the cruise set at 85 or more, still got 30 MPG. Not bad at all for a full size car. Once life settles down a little and I actually get to sleep properly again I'll be shooting for 40 with no mods other than cranking up the tire pressure. Unfortunately winter is coming upon us, and I'm planning on running winter tires up front with about 35 psi, rear will still be 55 psi all seasons.
