"FIRST OFF i have to say that these wheels with tires and filled with air weigh less than 21 pounds"

Hmmm, I wonder how much lighter they are without the air? 8)

I have a Honda Civic VX and have swapped the rims/tires before. I don't recall the exact numbers but The 13in rims/tires on the VX weight nearly the same as the Insight tires/rims. I mounted 145 width tires on the VX rims and tried them on the Insight and saw no improvement with mpg. It's hard to beat the LRR bridgestone tires was my conclusion. Have fun, RIck

Actually, someone should tell us how much air can weight in a 30 psi tire. I read from someone in another group, mentioned that big light-weight rims with skinny tires may not save as much weight, because highly compressed air can be heavy...
