According to the spec sheet you can mount the 165/65/14 Potenza RE92's on 4.5 - 6.0" wide wheels. I'm not sure how wide the HX wheels are. I didnt measure them. I will post more info (driving impression, FE) on the Insight rubber elsewhere, as soon as figure out which thread it should go in.

I'm pretty sure the HX are either 5.5 or 6 wide. Now I'm kinda wishing I kept those instead of getting the VX rims/wheels.

Oh well.

it's to bad no one has come
 
it's to bad no one has come up with a chart that you can put in wear life, tire weight, tred width, cost, max tire presure.
and have it tell you how much per mile it will cost you with how it affects your fuel consumption, but of course if someone did that then we might get stuck with more products that don't resemble poo.

the tires that came stock on the my vx appare to be the yokohoma y379 they have a 180 wear and BB traction temp, weigh 15 pounds, and 4.8" wide tred, I thought about getting them, but the would be 2/3rds gone by now.
