the error between 55 and 50 is 9% so calculate your milage and multiply the result by 1.09
If you calculate 16 mpg X 1.09 = 17.4 mpg

Or you could add 9% to the odometer reading so instead of 400 miles, you traveled 436 or 9% further.

I am running the same size tires as you and mine is off by a factor of 1.057. So say 400 miles on a tank would equal... 400x1.057 = 422.8 actual miles.

hope this helps ya!

Thanks! I love em too. I have entertained the idea of getting a wider offset wheel, but I can bring myself to get rid of these. Good lookin truck you have there!
