they are going on my wagon that has a two inch lift and a 1.8 SPFI engine with a 5sp dual range tranny.
Can anybody tell me what kind of gas milage im going to be getting? Im driving all the way from washington to colorado.
So any help would be much appreciated.

if your coming from stock 13's you may notice a few mpg loss, but not much I would think. I am running 195/75 14's and I was still getting 28mpg + highway with motor and carb problems.

Several guys in the off road forum have run 27's on an ea82 and I think 20-25 is about as good as your gonna get. It will do 70mph, but it will be a lot happier cruizing at 60-65.. Thought about waiting till after the road trip?
Good news is that you'll be ready to hit the trails sitting on 28's!

going from stock to 215's he probably would see some change, but from 205's to 215 i doubt it will make a dent.

But as stated above, with that small tire size difference, I wouldn't expect to actually see a difference in fuel economy.
