Hello im new to this forum, my question is i just bought a 2012 dodge ram 1500 hemi quad cab sport and put a 6 inch lift and 35's on it when it had 1000 miles. It went from 19 miles per gallon down to 12 i was expecting 2 to 3 mile per gallon loss not 7. anyone else have this problem?

my nittos killed my gas mileage quite a bit (5mpg) they are pretty heavy tires. you have more rubber to so they would be heavier. mine are 35's on a 20
