Mpg/power increase from 37" to a 35" tire?
I just had a interstate blow out on my toyo 37" MT yesterday morning.. Im trying to decide what tire size get. My tread is already around 50% and didnt plan on getting new tires any time soon.
But since this has happened i was wondering if i could bump my mpg and power up by dropping down from 37x13.50.20 to a 35x12.50x20 toyo mt?
Im getting right at 12.8 mpg with my current setup in my sig... Figure i could sell the remaing 3 tires on craigslist for some extra coin to help battle the cost of new tires.. Any input would be great.
Ill put a picture up later of my tire, the belts seperated and caused a major deformation of the tire.. It was like some glued a watermelon to the side of my tire. It grew lumps all over the tire.
