Can wheels and tires affect gas mileage?
When braking, my gas mileage is lowered by 33% at highway speeds and by 5 % around town.

@njambi,
Cepek all-weather square tires will be best for your mileage.

@njambi,
Braking has no effect on gas mileage. Gas mileage is reduced by acceleration, hills, rolling resistance, and wind resistance.
