regarding what would keep the speedo accurate -- what is the impact on speedo and odometer of using the 215/60/14's that came on the 528e,i bought recently, versus the stock 195/70/14's?? I am only getting 18-19 mpg with 5speed which is low based on comments i have read on this forum. but the car seems to be running great, starts right up and only a sometimes minor rough idle. As soon as it warms up here in maryland i was going to check o2 sensor, plugs , rotor and fuel lines to see if running rich or leaking fuel. before doing all that could the tire size difference have significant impact on mpg calculation?
