If you have them, do you change them in the winter?

alex says, "Got 235/55-18 on our 2009 Acura RDX, but switching to 235/65-18 for better fuel economy and a softer ride."

you will have a slightly off speedometer & your odometer may be off by a little

10% in sidewall height won't make that much of a difference & you're just going to fool your fuel economy calculations as well

Yes I do, but where I live you don't have to change in the winter.
