just the tires alone wont get you very good gas mileage takes more power to turn the wheels equalling more gas consumption.

not exactly but i know the lift messes up the aerodynamics and all and the tires take more power to turn em but the larger diameter makes the wheel need to do less rotations so it might equal out but i was just curious if anyone had this set up i wana get atleast 16 miniumly so if anyone has tips but thanks Matt
