Just bought an 05 CRD. Have determined the amount of lift needed to run 265 75 16 tires but am concerned with fuel mileage. I will not be re-gearing. I have searched the forum and cannot find the answer to the following question.

Can 265's increase my hwy mileage by effectively increasing the gear ratio? I assume that my rpm's would go down. And with all that awesome torque I am hoping the hwy mileage won't be affected too much.

Any experience with the CRD and 265-75-16 vs 245-75-16 would be appreciated.

Well I'm spending way too much time driving in-town, and the 265's are better on the highway.

when I switched - the avg of the 5 tanks before changing from 245/75/16 to 265/7516 and the average of the 5 tanks after 20.53 vs 20.51

Odometer miles/gallons pumped - no corrections

Eco tune; in-town.

and Diesel posts work better in CRD...Love that Torque - lot's more views and responses.
