Prius-22MPG???

Hey folks, changed the wheels and tires on the ol' Prius recently and noticed a huge drop in my MPG.
I had read of people putting aftermarket wheels and such on their Prius and seeing a hit of about 4 MPG, but this is ridiculous !
Before the car could get a constant 50 + MPG and drove smoothly.
Now the car wobbles and makes all kinds of noise.

Almost forgot ... here's a picture of the ol' wheel set up. They look pretty sharp don't they ? http://www.flickr.com/photos/82006403@N00/753808470/

( Thought you guys might enjoy a good laugh. Enjoy ! )


Now I just hope some guy doesn't hunt me down for messing up his truck in Photoshop. BTW - I had to adjust the car to fit over the frame of the truck, and the truck was facing the wrong way in the picture ...so... the car is actually mounted backwards on the frame.


But who cares - not me.

I'd wheel it. Think it could be P&G'ed down the Rubicon?

So did it bring a smile to your face, or did it just annoy you ?
I wanted it to be funny.

You're lucky if only the nerds laugh at you.

What a waste of your excellent artistic talent.

Get serious. I believe you can.
