Yeah, it's a combo of the heavier, larger tire as well as the fact those tires aren't really made for street use much. They are made more for the trail so they have a greater rolling resistance, hence making your mileage go down.

I love my crappy MPG's....if I was that worried about the cost of MPG's I would have bought some little 4 banger....we drive non aerodynamic bricks...we will never see 30+ mpgs....

Terra Grap and a Trail Grap are literally two different tires... Trail grap is way more aggressive and heavier. I started getting alright MPG's with em after i tuned my truck a little differently. 13 in town and about 16/17 highway, which i cant complain about.
