    Thanks for mentioning that bit about the wheels. I didn't even think of that! I thought that the bigger/wider wheels would just give worse gas mileage. Guess I was wrong. :D

    dude the reason why you have a noticeable decrease4 in acceleration is that the bigger wheels change your final gear ratio.

    WTF?????????? change the final gear ratio???? WTF you smoking?

    Bigger wheels don't change it....if you change the tires and wheels to some outrageously different setup from stock.....there could be some variation, but it's not gonna change your acceleration in any way

    Rolling Resistance is the term. :notnice:

    I still chirp my tires even with 17 x 10.5" in the rear. :nice:

    ...& unless ur running w/squeeze, a S/Charger, Turbo, or a built 3.8 Stroker motor, stay with duals and run 2.25" pipes. Larger than that (2.5" and up) kills your torque and HP. I know I learned my lesson. :D
