What do you think of these tires?

found some 31 inch wildcat ext mud tires on craigslist. The only problem with mud tires I guess is that they are pretty chunky. How do you guys feel about chunky tires? Do you notice a drop in MPGs and are they good for a Daily Driver? I really only want them for the rims, but if I could get a good use of these tires I'll take 'em...

Heres a picture of them.

On my 2010 two door JK I noticed a 1.5 mpg increase in gas mileage when I changed from 35" Goodyear MTR w/k tires to 35" Cepek FC II tires. The MTRs are a relatively mild mud tire, but one that seems to have a fairly high rolling resistance. The FC IIs are a very smooth rolling AT tire. So you might notice a 1 mpg drop in fuel mileage, assuming all else is equal to your current tires (same size, same air pressure, same driving style, etc.)
