I saw these on ebay and would buy them myself for my vx but I already have a brand new set waiting to go on, it sucks cause I really want to know how a 145 tire would work. so someone buy these and find out.... oh these are the same diameter as the stock 165 tires..
If I didnt just get my 155 85 13s, these would be good winter tires I would assume. They probably would be stretched a bit on the "wide" VX rim, since my 155s do have to stretch outward a little to fit my rims.
On the never-ending quest for better gas mileage...
I would steer clear of them just for the fact that you'd be turning at a higher RPM, since the overall diameter is smaller than you stock overall diameter. Assuming you haven't been here (or someplace else like it) before, just plug your sizes in the calculator:
I've seen some 75 and 80 profile tires that roll like tank tracks even when filled to 40 psi (35 sidewall) so what you gain in loss of frontal area you might lose again in rolling resistance.
I remember The RoadWarrior..To understand who he was, you have to go back to another time..the world was powered by the black fuel & the desert sprouted great cities..Gone now, swept away..two mighty warrior tribes went to war & touched off a blaze which engulfed them all. Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice
