that's no reason.
1. it'll change the accuracy of your speedo.
2. it'll have a negative affect on handling.
and all for saving $100 on a $17K+ car 3 years from now! quitcher
whining and get the proper tires. sheesh.
If you are driving 50k per year, it is likely for work, meaning you are
getting paid for mileage. That is what it is for...
If yo can't afford to properly maintain the car (including proper tires),
you probably shouldn't drive it...
HA, brilliant. No its commute miles. Now tell me how stupid I am for living
in a small town and working in Dallas. This thread got rather silly. I just
asked if it was harmful or feasable to buy a different tire. Now I know it
makes no sense to do so. Thats all I wanted to know. Thanks.
There's no problem with living in a small town and working in Dallas. You
should probably pick a small town a little closer than Nevada,
The bottom line is the same. Your whining was to save about $100 every year
or two. Skimping on tires when you commute so much is a bad idea. Again,
if you can't afford proper maintenance, you shouldn't have a car.
(BTW, by my count, you deserve what you get, being the first to throw stones
in this thread...)
Looks like 185/60/16 is your best bet. However, I don't know if going from a
205 to 185 won't actualy worsen the driving stability/comfort.
New tires will go somewhere between 40k and 80k miles, so you sure are
thinking ahead! There's probably some wheel/tire combos you can use
instead (what does the DX model come with?), but I don't really see
the point, either.
