Gas mileage on 37s?

Just like the title says, how do 37 inch tires affect your gas mileage from stock? or compared to 35s even?

It obviously affects it negatively and worse than 35's. I would imagine it would be in the very low double digits.

i'd probably throw out... if you can afford to run 37's on a DD you probably don't need to worry about the price of gas....

just sayin!

'07 JKU on 37's. Sees trails about every other weekend. 14mpg. If I do a lot of highway driving 16mpg. Upping the wheeling to every weekend, drops to 13mpg.

I have to admit though, I really do not care about the mileage in the rig. It's built the way I want it, and it is up to the task.
