Will someone else please tell this dude that a 4mpg increase/decrease is very very realistic from the 21lb ses wheels to rota slipstreams or another lighter wheel? lol i know several of you and i have discussed the topic of lighter wheels on our car makes a huge impact:

you are right lighter wheels do increase gas mpg's. I notice a difference in running 17"s vs 16"s.
