    I think rolling resistance matters much more. I say this, because the lightest tires don't always "win" by several mpg even, in Tirerack's mpg evals.

    Yep, also have orange and lime (in the motorhome shadow - kinda stunts it's growth). The lemon tree was supposed to be a dwarf, it's like 12 feet tall...lol.

    It's more the unsprung weight that I see resulting improvements in, specifically with responsiveness. Don't think I see any MPG improvements. Best MPG gains are when I drive the CX-5 versus my wife, she is hammer down!

    Part of my young life was spent with guava, grapefruit, lemon, orange, etc. trees in the yard. Was nice.

    Dont have the 19s but I am curious as well. I weighed the stock 2019 OEM 17s with tires and they were 49lbs.

    I added 20 inch asanti ABL-13 with 255/45/20 tires and they weighed in at 59 lbs.

    So far MPG hasnt changed much at all. Just finishing my second tank and its still roughly the same.

    Have the 17s on our new touring awd , and out of the gate mpg seems pretty damn good (28 mpg on drive home from dealer) . Not a big fan of the look and would like to upgrade to the pizzas or something aftermarket & clean-looking (almost an oxymoron), but dont want to sacrifice fuel economy to do so. Thanks for any input

    What year were these oem 19s? If 66lbs a corner that makes me happy knowing these heavy asantis i put on are 59lbs like your tsw's haha

    Pizza Wheels were only on the 2017-2018 model year.
