    Hey everyone, I have a 1999 tacoma 4 cyl. with stock 29s on it. If I upgrade to 32s and with a 3" will it decrease my mileage that bad? Also what backspacing should I have on my wheels to clear the cailpers. If anyone can help me out there, thanks.

    My previous truck was a 98 reg cab 4x4 with the 2.7, stock it got around 22. Then I lifted it 3 inches and put 33x12.50s on it, I was pretty easy on it and averaged about 17-18. Never really felt much difference in power either. Drove it like that for 4 years and 100k miles with no issues.

    Different truck but my uncle claims he used to get 22 with his 95 p/u with the 4cyl and a 5speed before my cousin put 33x12.5s on it. I think he said he gets 12 now driving highways out in the middle of nowhere

    With consistency I get about 22 mpg, mixed highway/street. Re-geared (4.88), 32" on 2005 TRD Sport wheels, header, CAI. Most thinking people would tell you that the interaction between the skinny pedal and right foot influences mpg most.
