Just want to pose the above question to all the drivers out there, feedback is appreciated.
Before I start, let me give some info on my current car. Driving a SUV now. Stock wheels were 235/65 R17.
After asking around, most of my friends or shop owners will say that 'your FC is going to be super jialat, furthermore with such big rims'.
I thought, what the heck, it is not everytime I get to have a car to be able to be fitted with big rims. I went ahead and got a R22 rims with 265/35. The overall diameter is still withn 1% of my stock wheels. I must say, I did not regret my decision. Full chrome with a 3" lips.
Before changing wheels, FC was approx 7.8 - 8 km / L.
After changing rims, I monitored for 2 months and most of the time, it is quite constant.
Many who have seen my rims were WOW, your FC must be crazy. I just told them it is ok, still acceptable to me.
Question to the bros and sis here, be it either you have experience with rims upsizing or you hearsay from others, what do you think my FC is currently.
I did not purposely change my driving style before or after, style and attitude still remained the same.
