I ran a set on my 99. Didn't like them at all, and changed back. Seemed not as sure footed towing a load. BTW I saw no change in mpg.

Using a gear/tire calculator I came up with an increase of 3.57mph going from a 235/75 to a 235/85, I guess if you need tires the switch is ok. But I sure would not buy tires just to get that. Maybe for the cool factor and extra height look into 19.5's?? If not there is also always a gear swap, I had 3.55's in my 99 5 speed and fuel economy was good and it pulled anything I hooked to it.

Nitto makes some nice skins that are highway tires, but have good tread on them. They look more like a AT than a highway tread. They are called Highway grapplers. You can get them on Discount tires direct for a reasonable price. And they are a sight sponsor!!

my 2WD on 325/85/16's. 1.5" leveling kit up front. Absolutely the biggest I could fit without it rubbing the fender liner when I turn.
