Wait Pugga, is the procomp 7028 heavier than the stock steel wheel? I am thinking stock wheel is not lightweight compared to an alloy wheel, even one of 1" larger dia.
How do you say the tread pattern on the duratraks is more aggressive? The grabber AT2s are pretty aggressive to begin with (part of the reason I love them).
In my old Ford Ranger, going from the stock 15" wheel/tire setup to a 16" wheel/tire setup actually increased my MPG for my driving habits (80% highway). Hence my confusion/question now. I know, I know, its not a prius (surprised no one has said that yet
) but I am at 16/17 highway now and going to 14/15 would not be cool for me
