Does make it a much harder decision. Really depends on what you want to do with 'em and how long your going to keep.

when you get into bigger heavier tires and more local mileage your gas mileage might actually go up(because you can get moving more efficiently) or stay the same with 33'* and 4.10'*, the stock 265'* are 32 so its not that big a deal. and if you dont do much high way youll be fine. i would think you could go 35s and 4.10s and still get 12-15 mpg depending on your driving style.
