CmndrFish: BKITU: CmndrFish: Does this apply to cars where the body style is the only difference? I'm thinking like Accord and Accord Coupe and Altima and Altima Coupe. That a Camaro would have higher insurance than a Malibu would make sense, but those cars are quite a bit different. The first two pairs listed are functionally the same car.Yes, I was speaking of year/make/model of sedan vs. same year/make/model of coupe. Comparing between different year/make/models, the year/make/model makes a bigger difference than sedan/coupe.That sort of stuff always blows my mind. Obviously the insurance companies have the numbers and they know which ones cost them more, but it's still whacky to me that there's a difference between sedan and coupe drivers of the same bloody car.

Znuh: Larger tires change the final drive ratio of a vehicle, just as an overdrive reduces revs at a given speed, larger diameter tires alter the rev count as the tire is making less complete revolutions to cover the previous ground crossed by the smaller tire. Or: if a car with normal rims hits 2100 rpm at 60 mph, the larger diameter reduces that. This is why people who alter tire ratio end up having to correct the discrepancy at the speedometer.That's the last Jalopnik article I'm ever reading.
