    I have a 07 with the stock dunlops(POS) and 3 of the originals are at about 36xxx and 1 on like 10k. But I plan on upgrading to some (all 4) BGF ATs within the next few weeks. What can I expect in MPG change from the 245s to 265s? I currently average anywhere from 18-20mpg and thats mostly city. TIA

    I would say not a big difference. They are a bit heavier since they're AT's and wider, but I don't think it would be too noticeable. Keep in mind: Depending on what aspect ratio you pick for your new BFG's, the tires may be a bit taller, which would make your speedometer read a little lower, which would give you a lesser MPG calculation.

    In the end, I urge you to just get the tires you want in the fitment you want and not worry too much about how it affects your MPG. BFG AT's are 10000x better than OEM Dunlops!
