And another update... seems a retune is in order. What worked with the old tires, not so much with the new. I am apparently hitting higher loads at lower rpms (expected) and now have some timing rattle. Nothing big, but enough to notice and take action on. Wont do this until next weekend, I want to run this tank down to compare before & after on the same tune.
Next comment... New tires out of the shop have drag... so much that I thought the brakes were sticking. Same feeling. Went down a grade right after the alignment and found that I'd lost speed going down hill compared to just 4~5 hours earlier. So my initial gut was telling me there would be a good mpg drop. However... now that I am into day 2 and there are some heat cycles on them, that dragging brake feeling is gone, and the timing rattle intensity has also diminished. I have also noticed some of the coasting issues are also diminishing.
Anyways, just thought I'd toss that out there...
