    I've searched extensively and have found minimal so hold those flame-throwers.

    In need of new meat. I've just landed a set of 10" wheels for a sweet-ass deal!!! Was debating on which tire...a 31" "better" or 32" "good" tire?

    My need is primarily a "snow" rated tire to handle the sweet MN snows here. I currently have 31 1050 15 BFGs on it now (i think they look dorky with my Icons on 8" wheels). I would like to upgrade to 32s but would that kill MPGs??? I know that the grabbers have the "snow flake" designation on it just like the BFG AT KOs.

    So here are the two choices I like from tire-rack:
    31" general grabber at2 or...
    32" kumho kl78???

    Their prices are about the same and am not looking to "break the bank".
    -thanks, johns

    Going from 31's to 32's isn't going to kill your MPG's. You will be fine
