Good evening folks! I need some help. I want to change out my tires which are Continentals and upgrade to a better and more aggressive one. I don't what to do a lift nor change the size ( 225 65 17). I also don't what to sacrifice speed rate or mileage. FYI, I'm getting 30.3 mpg. Any suggestions??

Thanks,
Ron

The more aggressive the tread design the lower the mileage. There's no way around that. A standard highway tire has lower rolling resistance, therefore smoother ride and better mileage. If you move to an all-terrain tread choose something with a continuous center rib, this will help with the mileage. Also, if the door jamb states 32psi (for example) you can increase that a couple of pounds and it will also help to decrease rolling resistance.

Thanks for all of your replies folks! I ended up getting a set of Michelin Defenders. I stayed with the same size and wheel and gave the Continentals to my daughter inlaw . They only had 6k on them. Bottom line is we're all happy!! LOL
