I have not noticed any reduction in MPG since I put my Chrome wheels on. I am still around 61 MPG on the computer, which calculates at the gas pump somewhere around 58.8.

UPDATE:
Well, spring arrived a little earlier than I anticipated, so I changed over to the summer tires and the Optima rims. Here's the pic.
