Got the 285/70r19.5ís mounted, balanced and put on the truck. Overall impressed with how everything balanced out for being a heavy tire, 4-6 oz each. Very smooth and quiet and not nearly as harsh as I was expecting. Running 70psi for running around unloaded. Also less squirm than I was anticipating as well. Maybe I just got used to how bad the 37 Toyo mtís rode? As noted by the tire installer, it kinda looks like my truck skipped leg day

How about a sideline shot showing how far the tires stick out? What offset are the wheels?

Wow, that's an extremely narrow tire. Any reason in particular you want to tire so narrow?

Donít necessarily want tires this narrow but in a commercial duty 19.5 wheel/tire with the higher weight ratings, they donít make them with similar profiles to LT tires. Ultimately went this route for when towing for the added stability the stiffer sidewall provides.

Iíve run 6 tanks in the last 2 months with the 285ís and can put a reasonable comparison vs the 37ís now.

Unloaded, I ran 18 tanks through the truck with 37ís and I averaged 15.4 mpg. 3 tanks were fully highway (53mph tank average) and the rest were just to and from work, which is about 8 miles of 60mph highway and about 8 of stop light littered city roads mostly 30-45mph (31 mph average).

The 6 tanks Iíve run through with the 285ís has one highway tank with a 56 mph average, and the rest have been to/from work with close to a 32mph average). The mpg on these tanks averages out to 16.7.

Highest tank mpg is still on the 37ís, 17.78Ėbut that had a decent tailwind.

I donít have enough towing tanks to pull any form of data from.

Total miles: a whopping 7806 for this data. Highest mileage on one tank: 412.2.

I tried to just drive/idle these as I normally do, havenít tried to do any ďmax mpgĒ shenanigans like coasting, etc. I also have tried a couple tanks with exhaust break on full, auto, and off and I didnít note any noticeable differences.

Variable I canít account for: the aerodynamic difference of the truck with the 2.25Ē coils vs the 0.5Ē coils. Iím sure a piece of it can be attributed to that as well.

This data is pretty close to on par with the 3 6.7ís Iíve owned, 2x G56ís, 1x 68.
What gears were you running with each set up?

Started this little project out of pure boredom tonight. I have a full pack of sound deadening so I went ahead and started. Did the drivers side doors tonight.

Absolutely NO. I hate the roller skate look, very few wheel manufacturers to choose from with correct offsets.
