go here:

tools and toys (not just for linux): car wheel calculator

this will give you revs per mile.

return the truck back to stock, reload the tune in the truck and when it ask if you want to set optional parameters, select yes, and enter the gear ration then scroll to find tire size or diameter, that when you will enter the Revs per mile, you will not find an exact match, as they are in increments of 5, so I would suggest selecting the higher amount closest to actual, not the lower amount.

Shelby, your best bet for figuring mileage is to get on the interstate, start a any mile marker and drive 5 miles and see what your ODO shows vs. what you have actually driven as per the mile markers.
