It's a tire sz calculator site, the best I've found.
Ok I'll check it out. Gracias

Factory wheels have been put back on and MPGs are still not going back to 21+. Does anyone have any other suggestions?

Damn, i average about 8mpg would be my guess... It is a truck that is rated at like 12 but with my driving it sees like 8, i love acceleration.... I know its not a Mustang, but i just thought i would throw it out there.

Stock tired and rims are back on and it's at 18.8 now. This is also city driving. It's also a 05, so it's only 1 year newer than yours =P

Well it is harder to move bigger tires. You ever see a Prius rocking 20s? I got a buddy who put a dual exhaust and biger tires on his jeep and he gets like 13 mpg now. Kid goes through $100 of gas every week

Nope, you're not the only one. My auto sixxer is the same way. I'm driving a V6, but getting GT gas mileage.... it sucks.

I usually stay at about 16-16.5 mpg, sometimes 15 mpg if I decide to have a little fun with accelerating. Still isn't bad for me though, cause I went from a 4x4 Expedition getting about 11-12 mpg to this, so this is alright for me. :p

Well that's a good deal you got there it sounds like, especially considering gas prices these days. Not sure how much it is where you live, but where I am in Florida it is almost $4.00 a gallon. It's cost me over $50 to fill up my little gas tank before, and it wasn't even empty!

It cost about $3.95 per gallon for 91 the other day when I filled up.
