Will Lighter Alloy Wheels Improve My Mileage?

It would seem logical that if you reduce the weight of your car you improve your gas mileage, since less weight means less energy needed to move it. This is true! However, switching to allow wheels will generally reduce the weight of your car by – 1%! So it would probably take you about 15,000 miles of driving to save eleven bucks.
If you do want to make sure your wheels are contributing as much as they can to your mileage’s bottom line, make sure they are inflated up to pressure. This is a surefire way to maximize your MPG while keeping your car very safe. If you haven’t had your tires checked or rotated in awhile, come in and see us.
