As in less rolling mass. Less rolling mass = less weight the engine has to push around, inturn means more MPG. :thumb:webby said:They had a big writeup on why they are - they way they look. They described how many hours they spent in a wind tunnel to just squeeze out an extra 1-2 mpg by changing the design around a lot. I guess they are lighter than standard rims by quite a bit as well. All for aerodynamics/wind resistance etc.
Thanks for the info Webby. I've nixed the idea of the Hybrid when they threw out the manual tranny option. I pre-ordered my EX Coupe last Friday...woo-hoo!!! :rockwoot:webby said:no nav on the hybrids.
You would probably be able to set up an order on one now though (deposit at least). Pricing is supposed to be relesed by honda in October - closer to the Hybrid release. Fuel estimates by honda state - 50mpg city / 50 mpg highway.
