While I love the induction wheels (Gemini's don't do the the car justice IMO), the wheel/tire comb is undersized for the wheel well with the stock 255/40 rubber. There's also zero sidewall rim protection with stock and little sidewall to help absorb the rougher spot. There's also a reduction in towing capacity with the stock rubber, and snow performance has been rumored to be less than stellar. So I spent a little extra for the upsized Michelins but IMO both the ride and look are transformational. I'm losing between 5-8% of range, but the tradeoff in ride, performance, aesthetics and curb rash protection more than offset range loss. No change in tire noise so far compared to stock.
