I haven't figured it out, probably scared to. I was getting 346 miles on a tank of gas on the stock crap tires. Now I am getting about 300 miles on a tank. Factor in the bigger diamater tire makes about a 7% difference on the speedo. So I am getting about 321 miles per tank. Loss of 25 miles per tank.mcampana said:Bueller, what kind of gas milage change did you get with those bigger tires?
I like this method better....I prefer not to cut the fender out...Bueller44 said:Ahh, I was just copying the linky to the same write up.
Note, I added 285/75R16's 2 months ago and I have only had to do the melt part of the mod. I have MT's that are 33" and that is all I needed to do.
I just turned the tire, heated up the inner plastic, used a rubber mallet and a piece of 2x6 jammed between the tire and the hot piece of fender plastic and then let it cool. Had to do it 2 or 3 times per side, but no cutting of metal.
