Umm it seems you re driving my truck!! - how are the X?T's performing for you? They seem to be lighter weight than many options - MPG hit?

I do like the look of your truck

Tires are good (no noise)but so far MPG's were not good with out them either. There is only 900 miles on the truck so far and city driving about 13.5 to 15. I only had one highway trip before the tires and only was at 17mpg. The 2018 3.5 Eco I had was definitely better. But I hoping things improve with longer break-in.

Waiting for my iconic platinum to come in any day now. Can you tell me if your xlt has crash bars on the front or not. I know that is a concern on the Platinums.....Not sure if the same are on xlt. Love the look of your truck. I spent 2 weeks looking at tires and rim combos online. Finally gave up and decided to do the 2" lift and worry about tires and wheels later. I order the powerboost hoping to get better mileage. What is your gas mileage now

What were you getting on the 3.5? I have the 5.0 now but am leaning to the 3.5EB next time.

Looks good and I have to say bravo for not being one of those truck owners with tires sticking several inches beyond the fenders.

Was your 2018 tire/wheel/level setup the same or similar?
I recently sold my 2018 with stock 20" sport wheels (275/55) and avg was 21.9 over 23000 miles - waiting for my 2021 and thinking about wheel/tire setup similar to what you have now

That was the exact factory setup I had on my 2018.
