Alright fellars can someone help me with this question...supposing I have a certain car which came with 14' rim and types and i am getting a certain mileage from point A to B..if I were to put on 17' rims and tyres for instance then should the mileage be the sale from point A to B on the same car?

yes it does, more diameter would mean a bit better mileage since you getting more distance covered for the same revs but too big and too heavy may mean less
i run a 55 series 14" and get considerably less than my 60series 14" but to hell with mileage, is all about gearing

if the rim bigger, but the rolling diameter of the wheel is the same,

then technically you should get the same mileage

if the rolling diameter increase, and the weight decrease, you should be getting some better mileage

too heavy rims will decrease your mileage

too small will do the same

consider the engine's effort in moving the wheel

Easiest thing to do is to use the tyre calculators

The short of it is larger, heavier rims will burn more gas to turn em, but burn almost the same once you're already rolling. Keep in mind larger diameter rims will also change how accurate your speedometer is…also affecting percieved mileage

Yeah... also when a rim has alot of mass on the outer rim... that's worse for power delivery/mileage than a rim with less outer diameter mass...

Yeah.....internial momentum.....good when yuh going.....sucks when you initially accelerating or have to stop.

Possibly why its so easy for me to slip my tires....damned things to light. Light rims really makes your suspension move yuh on bumpy roads eh?
