If a change in MPG has occurred it has been so minimal that I've not noticed. The primary thing I've noticed since swapping my OEM Conti's for the Michelin LT235/85R-16 Defender LTX M/SE is a smoother, quieter ride and IMO a better look.

You do have to account for the larger tire circumference on your speedometer for you'll gain from what I'm seeing between 2~3 MPH...since switching to these tires I tend to monitor the MPH readout on the Fusion Infotainment Screen for an accurate MPH.

We have installed KO2 235, but this the suspension upgrade from agileoffroad.
That is the best upgrade (ok, on the same level as solar panels and lithium batteries).
