Well how else do you think they get those MPG numbers.. you really think sticky tires will give you a good MPG number no way!
Also this is a 16k Econ car.. not some sports car...
Every new car I have bought had tires that were complete crap on them. When I get my dart I am placing the tires on Craigslist immediately and putting on some sticky icky shoes.
I typically run the tires out that come with the car and then replace them with better tires. If I do immediately replace the tires I keep the ones that came on it as a spare set in case I can't afford new ones when the ones I bought wear down.
But yes, every car I've ever purchased has had crappy tires on them. Doesn't matter if it was an economy car or a performance car. The Caliber SRT-4 came with Goodyear RS-A. They were okay, but were terrible for torque-steer. Once I put a good set on them the torque-steer immediately went away and the car drove so much better.
My current Caliber has a some shitty Firestone tires on them. I only have about 12,000 miles on them and they're at least 50% worn. I should get through the rest of this year and may replace them this winter.

I know for a fact 18" wheels will fit. I have 20" wheels on mine. Got the dealer to switch out the lame hubs for 20" Helo 884s. They look pretty sweet if you ask me. Will have pics soon. Just registered for the site.
