Talking MPG with 35s ???!!??

What kind of mpg are you guys getting with 35s on stock 20s? I know mpg is goin to go down with a bigger tire just wanting to get an idea before I pull the trigger on new tires

I wish I got 13. But then I can't see worrying about MPG when you buy a Hemi and then outfit it for off road. It's either what you want or buy a Prius.

It all depends on gear, terrain (where you live), weather, the way you drive, etc.

When I was on 35's I was averaging 15.5 MPG, but I had 4.56. With my 37's I do better overall as I do quite a bit of highway driving

What a both gears helps? I have 3.55 gears on stock 20s and with a tuner only get about 15.5. How is yours et up for bigger tires yet can retain that kind of mpg.

I live where there are pretty much no hills so and it's usually hot haha

4 inch lift and 35's on my PowerWagon with 4.56 gears,I get around 11 mpg empty,and around 8.5 mpg pulling my trailer with a couple 4 wheelers and gear on it.
If you want good mpg,buy a smart car!
