How to save money on your car

Most cars now have low profile tires that look cool but what most people don't know is they also make the ride ruff and kill the gas mileage. Unless you have some high end sports car it really does't make sense to use these types of tires. The other day I had used up the OEM tires and I needed to change them out and instead I changed from a 17" rim to a 15" rim and dropped the width of the tire to match the rim size. Under sizing so the circumference is the same but the width is little smaller. I get a much smoother ride and I get about 4 or 5 miles to the gallon more. On one trip I got 42mpg out of my 2015 Subaru Impreza the used to have trouble getting 36mpg. If you are needing new tires it is something to look into. The tire shop will give you an odd look but your tires will last longer and you will get better mpg in town and on the highway. Unless you drive for a formula one team you won't notice the performance difference.
