i'm convinced my 11lb wheels have a lot to do with my high FE

it should be no surprise that both the VX and HX have sub 11lb wheels. honda knows more than we do.

The only time light weight wheels would not help your mileage is if you are going on a perfectly flat road without any bumps or dips, as every time your tire hits a bump or a dip it takes energy to move past that and the lighter the wheel is the less energy it will take.

i could see that, but 100% of my driving is in city, 30 mph max for at maximum a few seconds. theres alot of stop signs and out of sync lights where i live, so i try to coast as much as possible. that means i gas and brake alot, so i guess the vx rims would help me


also the rims look so much better on my car, alot better than the donuts i had for 3 years
