Ok, here's the deal. I am going to put on a 3 inch leveling kit or small lift on my 2004 Dodge 1500. I am trying to decide between 33x12.50x20 or 35x12.50x18's. What I would like to hear from those that have experience is what kind of gas mileage are you getting with either set up.
As for my driving, I am kind of a lead foot. I also just installed an AEM cold air intake (juries out on whether I get better gas mileage)
Bottom line, if I threw some 35's on my truck what kind of gasa mileage can I expect from low to high.

Thanks,
Jon

My gears are 3.92's.

Also wondering if I put on a Truxxx 3 inch leveling kit (add-a-leaf in the rear) will I be able to fit 35x12.50's?
