Default 35's with a Hemi...

I think I am going to order a set of 35's for my 2004 2500 CC short bed Hemi in the near future. To those of you with 35's how much of a hit if any did you take with larger tires in fuel economy or power. Is the power loss noticeable. When I purchased the truck it had 295s on it which measure out to about 32" and about 10" wide. That is larger than a stock tire I know, so have i seen about all the loss I am going to get or will it get much worse?

Thanks.

I have also read that putting that size tire on the Hemis will burn up transmissions? Has anyone found that to be true?

I haven't heard of anyone burning up their tranny due to running 35's.
I had an 05 1500 QC w/Hemi 4" lift, 35's (35x12.5x20) and 3:92 gearing.
After adding a tuner and correcting the tire size my overhead readout read 11-11.5mpg around town 15-17mpg highway (depending on flatness of the road and speed). The only time I hand calculated the mpg was when I was towing my trailer and quads across the pass (4k total) and my average mpg was 8mpg (overhead read about 1mpg higher)
