Yeah, it probably does help with the bigger tires. Using T/H when not towing feels a bit like adding one of those shift kit setups you used to see a lot of on older trannies...more of an aggressive shift characteristic like you'd want in a hot rod. I'd think it would probably have some negative effect on fuel mileage but maybe not...and maybe relatively small if it does.
