Yes, you hit it on the head. Bigger tires equals more weight the axle has to move as well as bigger air resistance at highway speeds. Your truck is probably bogging due to miscalibration between tire diameter, speed sensor, and transmission shifts. Aerodynamics plays a big part in fuel economy when lifting or widening the physical stance of any truck. It is a choice most of us live with when the cool lookin factor is more important.
