6 month update - lighter wheels

I bought some lighter wheels as well some Red Honda center caps to match the the Red front and rear emblems. They are sparco assetto gara wheels stock size so I was able to keep my stock tires. Now I’m getting 51 mpgs was almost ever tank full.

Below is a quick weight comparison on Sparco Assetta Garas vs OEM, based on info from Tire Rack. It's ~33 lb weight savings on the Touring, and ~22 lb weight savings on the LX/EX:

TOURING - 215/50R17 (OEM tire weight = 20.50 lb ea)
- OEM Wheel Wt = 27.0 lb ea (7J x 17 | 45 mm offset)
- GARA Wheel Wt = 18.8 lb ea

LX/EX - 215/55R16 (OEM tire weight = 19.95 lb ea)
- OEM Wheel Wt = 22.71 ea (7J x 16 | 45 mm offset)
- GARA Wheel Wt = 17.2 lb ea

Have to remember at same time you get more inertia when coming to a stop so regen brakes work a bit better.
