    Recommended to me for 1994 Voyager Minivan to go from 195/75 to 205/70.

    I gather this is because of better handling because more rubber on the road.

    But. Another 4 tires with another 10 cm each, or 40 cm or 15.75 more inches
    would reduce mileage. With 3 liter Mitsubishi, I reckon I can get
    somewhere around 25 mpg.

    How much would I lose for the extra handling? 1-3 mpg?

    Also, the 195 is maybe 2-3 mm taller. And thinner as before.
    So better snow handling?

    Any thoughts?
