Last winter I replaced my original tires with some Toyos. I also got an
alignment at the same time just in case I had knocked that out of whack.
Since then my mileage has dropped about 5 mpg. This time of year I
typically used to get around 32 mpg. This summer I get around 47.

Anyone else tried Toyos, with the same or different results?

I think you mean 52, not 32.  If that is the case,  yes I've had the same
results but from installing snow/ice tires.  Put my OEMs back on this spring
and the mileage jumped back up.  I expect to take the hit again late this
fall when the snow tires go back on.

Oops, yes 52. Still down to 47. Well, Looks like I'll dump the toyos
early and go back to oems.

This is the last summer for my oems, all of which are almost at the wear
bars after 30K.   I'll replace them next spring when the snow tires come
off.  Hopefully by then the price of gas will have boosted demand for lrr
tires so I'll have a few choices.

Wow. I just checked the tires on mine. Better than 1/4" left at 35600
miles and being in LA, they're on year round. How come yours are
wearing out considerably faster? BTW 51 MPG for all 35000 miles.
