In that case your mpg should be the same if not better as you are traveling further with the new tires vs what the odo is indicating or what you thought it was indicating since it was reading on the high side.

Theoretically you are correct, but practically new tires could have higher rolling resistance. As far as I know stock tires new cars are sold with have the lowest possible rolling resistance in order to increase advertised mpg.

Yeah, taller increases, shorter decreases. Its how he is calculating. He was using the odo reading by fuel usage. If he said the new tires correct the mpg, then he needs to verify distance traveled otherwise its apples to oranges vs apples to apples.

Wow! That sams club link says they are a 90,000 mile rated tire. Plus the tread pattern looks identical to the old Michelin Rainforce tire that I loved. They were an 85,000 mile tire and the absolute best I'd ever had on wet pavement. I hated Michelin discontinued them.
I'm almost sad I don't need tires now. Lol. Hope they have a similar deal on these about 15,000 miles from now.

Wow, that is a GREAT deal on a great tire!

I was going to get those on my other car (205/55/16) but Discount Tire couldn't get them. They would have been about $400 w a family discount. Although those tires do pretty well in snow, you really need to make sure you are on top of the alignments and rotations. They tend to wear out on the edges which happens to be where most of your traction comes from if you do not keep a really good eye on rotation and alignment. Other than that, they are great and should get decently close to the 90k miles. I ended up going with Yokohama Avid Ascends instead.

I too went up a size on my versa, 195/65/15 with Bridgestone Turanza w/ Serenity tires. Mileage did drop off by about 4-5 mpg in city dropping but only about 1 mpg on the highway. If you have a sedan and live in a snowy climate you will notice that the wheel wells do clog with snow substantially more often and then freezes into a solid chunk of ice.

What is the difference in revolutions per mile? How do you you calculate that? Is there a chart?

Its 2% which is what I thought based on the odometer. The odo is rigged by Nissan to favor better gas mileage too. This would support Goodyear Fuel Max actually saves gas but they don’t last as long.

I have noticed bald tires get better gas mileage.

My latest mpg is 34

When I cruise by radar traps or use Waze, my speedo is off by roughly 1.8MPH.
