Puzzles me too....I hear conflicting stories from different people, on what mileage one can get with 35" tires....regardless of how much lift. I know my mpg is accurate....due to the bigger tires the tripometer is off so I use 2 different GPS apps for the mileage calculations.

I can drive like an ass (pedal to the metal for a full tank of gas) and still average 14 on the highway. Worst ever was 12's while towing a heavy trailer thru the mountains in North Carolina.....kept it out of overdrive the whole trip.

A few of these guys are claiming some pretty good mileage too......

Yea with my 35in BFG KM2s I got 17-18 but with my nittro trails I'm only getting 15. But my Nittros are more of a true 35in tire. My BFGs were closer to a 33.5-34in tire than a 35in tire

Thats about the same I got with my 33, and I had 3 different 33s amd all got the same mpg. Just got some 35 mud grapplers, and im sure its going to get worse Lol




Then again, I think we still get better mpg than most of these xrunner guys!

I cant believe yall are getting such good gas mileage. Just looked and Ive gotten 235 miles out of 3/4 of a tank. Did I calculate it right when I got 19.5MPG? thats saying I used 12 gallons because its 16-17 gallons to fill my truck up when the gas light comes on.

Your odometer/tripometer will not show the correct miles with your truck running 33" tires. This is why I use a GPS/Map app on the cell phone to get the correct mileage.

If I remember correctly.....a larger tire than stock will show "less" mileage on the odometer. SO you are getting more miles per tank than the truck shows.

You're right, because the tire covers more ground each revolution. So I got better than 19.5 mpg? Even though I'm not going to get near 300 miles out of a tank?

I don't use the gas gauge for figuring mpg....too much play in it. I just fill up the tank.....drive (the more you use from the tank, the more accurate)....record the amount of gas I used to fill it up again.....and divide that # of gallons into the miles on my GPS.

Will do. Thanks man! If I'm getting that good of gas mileage, maybe It won't be that bad with 35's.

Awesome! So what is your gas mileage? And are you regeared? If I can do the lift, wheel spacers, and tires and get away without a regear, then I'll do it. And how's the power difference between 33's and 35's? I lost a ton of power switching from 31s to 33s.....obviously.
