32's vs 31's

I was planning on getting some 31" TSL's but this guy in my apartment complex has some 32's on his Cherokee and they look big and make his Jeep look big. I am starting to change my mind. Now for the purpose of this thread.

Questions
How much of a gas mileage difference is there going to be between 31 and 32? And will my gearing be okay with 32's? I have a 4.0 with 3.73's auto

Remember when you're measuring a change in your mileage to compensate for the larger diameter of the tires.

When I went to 33s, with a 4.10 axle and 4.0, I lost maybe 1 mpg after compensating for the change in gears. My new truck with 31s gets about the same mileage as my old truck, so there's a negligible difference in mpg.

And with 32s, you ought to be alright with a 4.0 and 3.73s. I say go for it. TSLs are badass. Just don't cry about the terrible treadlife on pavement.

How bad is the tread life. I am planning to buy new rims also so I would have a spare set of tires for any long drives.
