My truck before getting tuned only got 14.5 highway (70 mph, no hills, ~450 mile trip)

Now that its tuned it gets about 16ish mpg highway. I bought my truck lifted so I can't comment on how much change it made.

I think your lift will have more to do with it than your tire size since you are only getting 35s and it will depend if you mostly drive hwy or city and do you hand calculate your mileage now? So presuming you correct your speedo for the tires, I would expect maybe a 1mpg drop depending on the aggressiveness of your tread. JMO.
