wont take much power...the biggest issue is the wieght that the larger tires add which could hurt your fuel milage

You will lose about 1 mpg and does not hurt power to anything noticeable. A number of people can get 20 mpg if they are light on the go pedal.

You will see 1-2mpg decrease, I notice no power difference but the little tires are easy to light up, as the big ones are not

I don't think that is going to stop you from getting some new tires....By the way what kind of tire are you looking at?

i didnt see much of a MPG decrease or a loss in power. only thing i saw was a touch more smoke and it looked better.

35s on 16x12s...those wheels have alot of negative offset meaning they will stick out farther so your gona want atleast 4" of lift

I cant spin my 35's, i definitely lost mpg and power........ Just being honest, stock tires were much easier to roast and provided better mpg's . All that being said its worth it, they look awesome!

really? I distinctly remember you saying that it was way more sluggy than before. No wonder there's never anything wrong with your truck, because you forget.

Bigger tires help your mileage while cruising, its the accelerating that sucks with them
