What tyres = +fuel economy...
The 164 V6 24V came with 205x55x16 as standard on the QV, optional on the Super.
I currently have 245x35x17 on Zender Star alloys which are all buckled so I'm going to replace them with a set of 17" multi spoke GTA wheels. Pot holes, a nagging wife and a desperate need to lower my high fuel consumption (which I'm putting mostly down to the 245's) means I need to tone this down.
I was thinking of going either 215x45x17 or 225x45x17 which should give me a good compromise between sport and comfort and shut the wife up for a bit!
. I was looking at a 147 with 215's alongside a 166 with 225's and couldn't really appreciate much difference visually so for 'bling' sake I'm not bothered.
Does anyone think that I will save much more fuel on 215's compared to 225's?
