Yea for sure, not only way more grip in your new setup also more weight in wider tires and im assuming you got wider wheels too, maybe even bigger diameter wheel?
I upgraded my viper's solid 1 piece rotor to 2 piece. Dropped 10lbs per corner and improved my mpg by almost 1mpg. Not kidding. I saw what it did and I was driving a little more aggressive in 95F+ temps.
My combo for the SRT is going to be 285 tires and 2-piece rotors all around.
Stock wheels but yeah, newer tires are definitely heavier! I expected it but I got the wider tires for better turning/handling for track day. On the other hand, my winter setup is the opposite. If I ever went to the strip, I’d put those on.
I have had snowtires that were 275's in the past mounted on thinner lite rims before, I sold them in a move since. I noticed no difference in economy. Ironically I may buy snows in 265 or 275 again this September. The absolute only time I notice better economy was way back when i lived at higher altitude planes (wyoming) at around 5000-6000 ft. I assume it was the less power (less air,so less fuel and less output = a bit more economy, especially highway as less power at a given rpm).
It will definitely improve mileage. Probably not enough to be measurable, but it will improve. Question is: will replacing the brakes with lesser units save you enough in improved mileage to pay for the swap? Almost certainly it will not.
I am in the market for a 2014 or newer black SRT. I wish to stay in the $35k ballpark or lower. I am concerned about this one because it has already been lowered and I have no way of knowing what...
I made a big mistake with my Exhaust choice. I went with the AFE cat back and boy does this thing drone in side the jeep. its happening mostly under 65 mph - high way is not s bad
on the street if I lift my foot up slightly it will go away
but boy does it sound good out side the jeep...
Hello there, I'm happy owner of the WK2 SRT with 34010km, car is really nice, the only thing that really bothers me is suspension. It's stiff, sometimes even too stiff. I had RunFlat tires, they were hard to drive, I bought Continental tires, it has really made a good difference, but still SRT...
I'm thinking about buying a GC SRT 2018 with only 700km on it.
The agency told me that someone bought it but had problems with the engine, so they replaced it with a completely new one but the s/n isn't engraved.
Is this something to be worried about?
