  • Dude When put alloys to any kind of vehicle either 2 wheeler or 4 wheeler, it will afftect the mileage for sure. If the weight of the new alloys is more than old normal rims then surely mileage will reduce. By how much it will reduce will depend on the weight that gets increased coz of alloys... It may vary upto 2-3 kmpl
