I bought my -5 prius two weeks ago and immediately had to take a 400 mile work road trip. Avg gas was >50 miles. I am considering larger performance tires for the car. Any pros or cons I should know about? Any particular models/sizes to consider? thanks

Larger tyres will lower fuel mileage and (possibly) reduce ride comfort. The Euro and Japanese spec Prius run on Michelin.. Pilot? Premacy? on 195/55R16 rims.

My summer tyres are Michelin. MPG was better with the winter Continental. I don't know why.
