I brought mine in for service at the 1 year mark for its first oil change - 3k miles. I made sure to schedule another before the 2 year mark, so I'd at least get that free too. I called the following...

Primacy tires are supposed to be good for about 2mpg increase - so you'll lose that plus another 2mpg or so figure, so expect 3-4mpg loss. But maybe someone who put larger tires on can give real...

Pilot Super Sports are what I...

I don't think I am going with 235's, but if I did, I think they would be 40 series - I'd have to run it through the calculator to see if that worked. I wouldn't want a taller tire.
