Thanks. Nothing new on my car either aside from trading rims. HAHAHA. On the lookout for new rims too (not trading the mesh, but the one in my signature).

Thanks.

I thought about it, but then I thought that it's too much darkness going on for my taste, so I kept all the chrome pieces and emblems chrome (despite me hating chrome). Also, my Vios emblem is a genuine Toyota part, so I don't want to paint it. lol

Are they going to be available painted? I'm definitely going to order a pair this time either way.

you know i havent really done an official test but im kinda guessing theres no change for a couple of reasons

1 the new tires are a little wider than stock so are prob a little heavier means more drag

2 the moon discs are actually pretty heavy alone

maybe if i still had stock tire size and put these moons on that might improve mpg a little but now theres the extra weight and drag so ill try to keep track and get some numbers

When I went from the stock 15" steelies and Eagle LS (craptastic) tires to 17x7 rims with 205/40/17 Parada Spec-2 (grippy, awesome) tires, I got the same gas mileage. But then again, that set up weighed about the same as the stock steelies and tires. It's only when I went to a heavier set up that I lost mpg's.

Would have never thought those moon discs would be heavy. lol.

At least yours came with Potenza's. Seriously, the Eagle LS tires are crap! Horrible dry grip, horrible wet grip. I would hydroplane easily with them. Taking on ramps at speed in dry conditions wasn't even an option since they caused the car to understeer like crazy.

The Parada Spec-2's had amazing dry and wet grip. Never really hydroplaned with them. Summer tires FTW!

The only time my car ever saw snow was when it snowed overnight at Yosemite (none of us knew it was supposed to snow). I had some generic tires (the ones in my sig). They're all seasons, and perform WAY better than the Eagle LS tires. I waited for the snow to melt a little before leaving Yosemite, and these generic tires (Lexani LX9100) gripped well in the slush. Didn't want to try full blown snow since my car is low. hahaha
