If your stock tires were the 33's when your speedo reads 70 your are really doing 74. In a nutshell, you are going further than your odometer says you are. You do lose a little mileage due to the tires being heavier (weight penalty) but it isn't that much. Try doing a manual calculation correcting for the size difference. Your ECM can only be programmed for up to a 33" tire so no help from the dealer on this. You could add an aftermarket box (like a Hypertech) to correct but it really isn't worth it.
Sooo true try comparing gps miles with your odometer then refigure your gas mileage with the actual gps miles. How about some pics with them bad boys on?
