I will be switching to a much lighter wheel (holding out on revealing the specs) once I receive my car, but I will not be running a stock tire since my wheels are 18". This will throw off the mileage slightly, but I'll gladly report my findings. I was thinking about running with the stock set up for a month to get some data first to compare... but I'm too anxious to get the modding under way. The car will need a break in period anyhow... so my comparison probably won't be truly relevant until next year.
I agree w/ you. If you're not able to establish a baseline before you put on the 18" wheels, you really can't tell, as so many of us on here have obtained MPG's that vary quite a bit from one another.

Thanks for the info. Team Lexus. With 15 lb. wheels, you're paying a big premium up front if people go that route just to get better MPG's and to save on gas. I know you got a good deal on yours, but Volk's aren't cheap!!! :)
