How much decrease in mpg can I expect from going from 31x10.5 to 33x12.5? I'm getting about 15 highway and 13 city with my 5.2.

I did not notice to much change in MPG. As Long as you do speedo correction you prolly wont see much of a difference. I get 15 - 16 MPG per gallon mostly freeway driving with limited city driving with my V-6 2000.

How do you do the speedo correction? Are you talking recalibration. If so, what's the cheapest way to go about it.

Adrian,

Some guys go with the speedo recalibration units. There's a few companies that make them, and some of the "power programmer" computer things you can buy will make a correction for you as well. I decided to take my Dak to the Dodge dealer and have the shop techs plug it in and recalibrate the speedo. It only cost $30 and has worked like a champ.
If you plan on changing tires sizes often, you might think about whether or not purchasing a calibration unit would be more cost-effective for you. For me, I plan on staying ith 33" tires for the life of the truck, so I decided that $30 was better in my case.
