I installed my 3" SL grabbed some wheels to get rid of stockers and needed some rubber because old tires were really bald grabbed some Pirreli scorpion atr's now i'm thinking of jumping up to bfg k02 295 75 R16s to round out the look and i was wondering how everyone's mpg is on their 2wd X with 33"s i believe i have 4.9 rear gear ratio with the 5 speed manual

You will go down to about 14 with 33's I believe, but if you wheel at all, you will rub like crazy unless you BL it too

I have 33s and the hg49. I get 12/16. With the 33s and a 4.9 final, the actual final drive ratio is 5.26 i think. It changes depending on the new tire size. Stock diameter in 30.6". The formule to calculate you new final drive ratio is new tire diameter- 33" x final drive ratio-4.9 divided by stock size 30.6= 5.26..........the higher the number the lower the fuel economy.

That would be considered a 34" tire. It's not going to fit. It would still rub if you did a 2" body lift.
