Got my first Honda last year, a CR-V. It has a rebuilt title after it was rear ended. It was rebuilt by the seller and offered at a deal too good to turn down. Wife loves it, Dogs love it, I like the way it does everything well. We have taken it on several 1600 mile RT's in relative comfort. One thing that I noticed was after I got new tires I lost 3 MPG. The Good Year tires are excellent rain tires, but wasn't expecting that dramatic of a drop.

Different tire brands or different models from the same brand have different rolling resistance, or weigh different amounts, even if they're the same "size" of tire.

Higher rolling resistance or heavier tires will result in lower fuel mileage.

Dont forget the fact new tires ALWAYS cost you gas mileage for a bit. It slowly returns as tires wear. Very normal, especially if you got high mileage rated tires.
