    Are you getting the same gas mileage because when I got new tires my mpg dropped down dramatically? I was getting 51-53mpg regularly and now with the new tires I am getting 44-46mpg. I had the tires on for about 7000 miles now and I am still getting 44-46mpg.

    I drive in the NW suburbs of Chicago and was getting 60-63mpg this summer No A/C, now with brand new tires I am getting 58mph so there as been a small loss but should improve after some break-in
