Tires? Mileage Difference?

I am about to purchase either some pro comp extreme a/t's or toyo m/t's in 33x12.50-20, and was wondering what kind of mileage difference I would see between the two types of tread. If any one is running these tires please let me know what you think. I would hate to drop alot of money on some tires that I would not end up liking. Thanks

Happy Holidays!!!

I would say go with the toyo's i have seen some problems with the procomp tires i remember one member on here and the side walls come apart on them. As for milage decrease i would say it will be minimal as they are not much bigger than the stock tires.

I was going to get the Toyo's mt's but got a smoking deal that I could not pass up on the pro-comp xtreme a/t and so far so good. No complaints other than I wish I had 37's. The procomp xtreme a/t has a 40k tread warranty. I don't think you could go wrong with the Toyo's either.

I recently upgraded from the stock Continentals that came on my truck which were approx. 33X10.5X18 to the Toyo Open Country M/T in a larger 35X12.5X18 tire (same rolling diameter as you are looking at.

I am geared with the stock 3.73 gears.

To make a long story short, with the stock tires when I purchased the vehicle I was averaging ~15MPG, after several service appointments and all the software upgrades, I had recently been averaging ~13MPG... a bit disappointing. After switching to the new Toyo tires, my calculations show that I am getting a dismal 9.8 MPG. However........

I have not had the computer re calibrated for the 35" tires, so my speed, and overall mileage is most likely off by a bit, therefore my MPG calculations are also off by a bit i'm sure.

As far as performance goes, I have to say i'm pretty pleased. The larger, M/T tread does make a little noise..... sort of like a constant whir when traveling down the road. It also takes a little more time to get everything up to speed, but the off-road performance, and performance in rain and especially snow is fantastic. For my purposes I'm pretty happy.
