MPG with 4.8L and 35X12.50 with 3.42 vs. 3.73 vs. 4.10 vs. 4.56...


Recommended Posts

2010 with the 4.8 is still a 6 speed if im correct? Cause if it was a 4spd with those tires/ motor id say the 4.10's would probably be your best ratio choice for milage in town and still not seeing crazy revs out on the highway. I think your biggest hit in MPG for the tires in question.. is going to be unsprung weight... your current 285/70/17 destination is 44lbs if it's load C, where the 35/12.5's are ranging from 61-75lbs a tire from what I can find.. thats a 58-84lbs increase in unsprung weight.. thats amost like adding duals.. I think your going to loose 2-4mpg depending on driving style.. and i'd say 3.73 coupled with that 6 speed and a easy foot would give you the best milage.. but its still gonna go down.. I dont care what anyone wants to say.. add that unsprung wt and it takes a whole lot more power to turn..

I'm pretty sure it is a 4 speed. I may just be assuming wrong.

Thanks a lot. That is a good look at rolling mass. I am definitly not very knowledgable when it comes to these things. from what I have read the 3.73 looks like the best bet for my 90% highway driving.

I used to have the same size tires on my truck nitro mud grapplers with 373 gears stock 4.8 regular cab short bed 4x4 and I'm almost certain it's 4 speed automatic trams I believe I used to get about 12 to 13 mpg it does have alot to do with driving habits but I liked to haul ass show off and go off roading what size gears do u have in ur truck now

3.42

 

I'm thinking: See how it goes and then see If the change to 3.73 is worth it (12-13 is pretty good).

After my 2nd set of 35s were bawled I up the ainte and put another 6" lift on top to make 12" lift regeared front and rear to 4.88 yukon gears and put some 40/13.50/r17 Goodyear mtrs and amazingly I'm now getting 14 to 16 mpg. Doesn't make much since but I'm happier

No I didn't miscalculate I have superchip air intake throttle body spacer force fuel treatment used in every tank and I've clocked it multiple times and that's my average
