Default Improving Gas Mileage with BIG WHEELS!!!

I wanted to know if anybody have any ideas on how to improve your gas mileage with Big Wheels. I have 22" rims with low profile tires so the diameter is the same a stock, but the rims are much heavier. Any ideas?

Thanks

I added a CAI, cat back exhaust, and e-fan to help improve my milage after adding bigger tires.

ypu shouldn't have lost much, you increase the rolling mass but you decreased the rolling resistance w/ the low pro tire, i read bout that in a tire tech magazine last week, thought it was pretty cool, everybody thinks is automatically kills gas, but it really doesn't do that much as long as the overall diameter stays the same, now depending on everybody's driving style that could be proven wrong. i only gave up 1 to 2 mpg w/ my 20's
