Just like the title says, looking for some numbers from guys that run 295/75/16 or 295/70/17 and what kind of mileage y'all get.

thanks

I have 295/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers
my speedometer is off by 7% with the increased tire size.
My ultraguage is set up to compensate for the difference in tire size and gives me pretty accurate readings.
Based on the Ultraguage and summer AZ contidtions(intake temp over 100* & AC always on), City driving is ~14mpg, at 55mph I get ~18mpg, and at 75mph I'm at 15mpg. (these are averages)
I have been thinking of regearing to improve my city MPG but I dont want my 75mph Mpg to suffer.

thats not terrible, i get roughly that now with my 285's, I'm wondering if I'm gonna have to do the cab mount chop, i don't do hard core off roading, and I've got tons of room with my 285's, approx 3.25" of lift up front
