For the Ti handling package, you're sure to see lower numbers in stop and go traffic because of the increased moment of inertia due to the larger rims (tire width & rim diameter), however the summer tires are GreenX branded (LRR) - another reason why they'd be horrible in the winter.

So if you do a lot of highway driving (like me), you might end up getting fairly reasonable gas mileage. Plus, you waste less gas when you can take turns going 35mph... not that I do that... >_>
