    I ran 255/85/16s before my 285/70/17s. Stock gearing felt a lot better actually with the tall and skinny tires.

    Question: slightly related (kindof a thread jack...sorry)

    Does the M/T Taco actually get BETTER gas mileage with a slightly larger than stock tire? Seems like it would bring the RPMs down at speed. Obviously weight is still a factor...but figured I'd ask.

    MAYBE. In theory.

    My MPG are down because winter and because foot in throttle disease.

    I LOVE MY 4.88's. I am 1000% satisfied with my decision.

    Old thread but here to revive it...

    I recently added a 3” lift with pizza cutter 255/85r16s (33”). From stock it feels more sluggish (if that’s the correct term). Going over Mt.Hood I could feel the additional weight of the load E tires and Fiberglass canopy resulting in me dropping to 4th gear to maintain 60mph. I should also add I’m a manual. Is it too unreasonable to be able to maintain 5th or 6th gear going over a pass? Or would I be more pleased spending the money on getting 4.88s?

    For sure get the 4.88's. You will not regret it.

    4.88's definitely!
