Hey Jay, are you on 19's and what's your tire size? I'm currently on Style 124s staggered but want to go 19's. Is it 245/40/19 and 275/35/19?

How's your ride?

18MPG for 70% city/30% highway in NY. A lot of stop and go, which I hate more than kidney stones. Tire Pressure makes a difference in MPG, too high and you lose and too low and rolling resistance...
