I just did my first measured trip. In a bad thunderstorm day w/ a good 40+ mph side winds, temps. changing from 90 to 70 to 90 within the trip, running AC(w/ idling to cool of the jeep for my disabled mother) Running speeds ranging from 60 to 75.

19.6mpg (tire size corrected) with LT 245/75/16(30.8") Revo's (c class) + OME HD lift w/ 1/8" clevis lift.

Hows everyone else doing?


Still have power, but w/ high winds at certain highway speeds (lower range) if I want to accelerate it NEEDS to downshift to do anything.

I measured around before the tires and according to a ruler it would rub, I had a bit of time and went at it. Did the pinch welds(not as flat as i could have) and gained 1/2" of clearance. No rub except for the swaybar rub which is caught when you hold the wheel at full lock. After a day of driving I broke my habbit of full lock. Could just be because the extra tread width of the LT 245.

I cannot say it would rub on the pinch, but I'd put a penny on that it would.

I don't have the 245 75s but maybe you will let me answer, I average around twenty with mine running 5 over the speed limit most times, AC on if needed, and a load of tools/skids etc , I do a 500 plus round trip almost every weekend, sometimesget a little over twenty, sometimes a little below but in that area. I have gotten 21 plus before on a good day, and one bad /windy/ cold /snow covered road day about 16 :oops:
