    You mean gas mileage? I doubt you would even notice a difference.

    Not so much gas mielage, I notice that most guys that wheel hard have 15 or 16 inch wheels on their trucks. Would acceleration and torque be reduced with a litte bit bigger heavier wheel.

    oil change...
    the only diff would be weight. but from a 17 to an 18 you wouldnt notice any difference.
    the tires will be the same size, the only change will be the inside diameter.
    Im running 18's and my truck performs great
