On a 8,500 pound (4 ton) truck, adding the weight of the larger tires is not going to affect the mileage as much, it any, as it would on a 3,000 pound car/truck. It might in fact increase mileage.
It would be interesting to know the difference in weight of the two sizes. I bet the weight is less than 125 pounds total for all 4. I would think even less, maybe 75 pounds. So, how much weight is being added compared to the total truck weight? hummmm....less than 1%?
