    Had tons on the old Taco's.... new Tundra is pretty stock
    well, my 255/75R17's MT's come up about 1/2" shorter than a 285/70R17 or 285/75R16 but i have all kinds of crap on my truck that adds a lot of weight and i probably average 17.5. I get between 18.5 and 21 on highway trips where i just cruise at 60-65 and try to maintain consistent speed or follow trucks to break the wind for me. My scangauge II helps me alot though. Once I towed between 3000 and 6500 pounds around for nearly a tank with only a trip or 2 to town without it and i only got 11.8:eek:.
