Default 33in Trail grapplers vs 35in Terra grapplers

I have 295/55-20 Nitto trail grapplers and I get around 11-12mpg on a good day. I'm looking at Nitto terra grapplers in 295/60-20. I'm wondering how the fuel mileage will be. The 295/55 trail grapplers weight 82lbs a piece and 295/60 terra grapplers weight 58lbs a piece. My truck has 3.92 gears, AFE intake, exhaust and an Edge CTS tuner. I hope that an all-terrain will roll better than the M/T and my mileage wont really change. Is my thinking correct, I really don't want my mileage much worse than it is. Heres a couple pics of the truck

So the 55s are heavier than the 60s...? The taller tire is lighter?

I am running the Terra's in that size and I can tell you that they are definitely not 58lbs.

I emailed Nitto on weight of other sizes with the following response:
Terra Grappler 305/55R20 120S = 48.62lbs per single unit

Terra Grappler LT305/55R20 E121S = 59.52lbs per single unit

Will see if I can get a response for the 295/60's for ya.

Will do.

Not sure of your location but looking to get rid of my 295/60's since they are a little taller than I though they would be. If I had a 4" lift would have been perfect, just fills the wheel wells a little to much with a 2.5" leveling kit. Love the Terra's so been looking at them in the 33".

The 295/60 are about 67 lbs. I found that weight on a couple different websites for shipping weight. Rimzone's calculations are....well some are spot on and the rest are waaay off. I would think the Terras would be better on mileage due to the weight, but don't have any real numbers for you.
