I did this swap, too.
and the first day's m/kWh went down from about 4.5+ to 4.1- for my commute of 50 miles.
is this logical, that m/kwh would drop so much?
is there such a thing as, the tire will wear in and increase its rolling speed?
by the way, the ecotopia's went bad with one hit by a nail and a bad patch job, and another with a gouge and a bulge from road hazards. i had 17.5k on them.
cost was about $175 per tire with tax, install, full road hazard and replacement, and lifetime rotate and balance. discount tire.
finally, the car has a slight shimmy now at 60mp and up speeds.
i first thought it was the gripping tread, now i am thinking there is a balance issue. what do you all think about that?
