Filled up for the first time since the original purchase. Waited until the light went on and filled up with 2 miles. $45 ($3.29/gal).

468 miles. 60/40 city/hwy driving. Eco on most the time. Playing around with ACC, haven't taken it 70.

Those wheels look shweet! Did you flash the ECU to the larger tire size to calibrate you speedo and shift points? What did you use to do it?

Me...I put the splash guards on I ordered tonight. Came a day early in the mail. Pretty happy. I also did a 150 mile round trip today, 50/50 city highway and put up 32 mpg! That is AWESOME for a v6...I even put it down a couple of times. I didn't even get that in my 4 cyl altima!!!

to calibrate the wheels i used the imid (under vehicle settings) and did the TPMS calibration and from my understanding it adjusts everything when putting bigger wheels on...... also the difference in since was small not enough to change the speed by that much only a few kilometre's per hour, but i could be totally wrong lol and i have a 6 speed manual so no need to adjust shift points haha

I don't think calibrating TPMS on the iMid will do anything. Check this out and report back, it's a great calculator to compare wheel sizes and shows mph speedo differences if you change sizes:

There's also a free android app (probably 1.99 for iPhone ), search speedometer to find it. You turn on your gps and it tells you how fast you're going. I'll bet you bragging rights that your going 4-10 mph faster at 60 MPH than your speedo says. This can be BAD for your tranny.

I recently bought a jeep wrangler and got the 16" steel wheels, planning to buy a set of the 17" take off wheels from craigslist. Tons of people buy the jeep package that comes w/the alloys and then buy or put on big off road tires w/low backspace for clearance. I thought I'd just change the wheel and that was it, but it was definitely shifting funny. I went from a 225/75/16 to a 255/75/17. I downloaded that speedo app and sure enough my speedo said 45 and I was doing 50. Fortunately the dealer was able to access the cpu and select the larger stock wheel as it was existing in the profile. Jeep forum folks recommend AEV Procal tool to make changes to non-stock wheel set ups.

Got me...Did you use the tire calc link I provided? What's the difference at 55mph? On my Wrangler, before I had the dealer calibrate the auto tranny was shifting hard as it thought I was going slower than I was. Basically it was winding out the gears like sport mode or something.
