I havent really noticed a milage change for MPG's at this point but the tires have only been on there a week thus far. As for the truck feeling like its trying to pull 2 tons of the truck i have noticed a diffrence in like third or fourth gear but other than that nothing big. I have 30 days to try them i may go back and see if i can get smaller AT tire for my truck,

I kinda of have to go through with what ever discount Tire has availble for my truck. After Readng many of the posts here and other places. I am starting to wonder if i made a mistake by going from P225/70R15 to a 30x9.5 15R. I worry about the wear and tear on my truck, running gear engine wear. Life expectancy of these. Guess im having something called buyers remorse now. Should have stuck with standard tire size i suppose.

The quote by ES894x4 is the reason for my whole worry but im going to try it and see. It is only the 2.3 Duratch with 5speed manual, but other than that i havent changed anything.

Yeah I'd be worried about your truck falling apart now. Make sure to check ball joints and tie rods weekly. You'll so need to change your oil more frequently now, I would change it ever 1,000 miles if I were you

/sarcasm lol, you'll be fine don't worry about it. You went up like a inch in size its not going to hurt anything.
