Yes they absolutely will be beneficial to you. Even 4:56 on the highway won't hurt you. After I put my 33's on mine was turd, even with the stock 4:10's and the 4:56's were a perfect fix. My mileage, power and all around drivability impoved greatly. Gearing seems to be the most overlooked factor when changing tire size but its probably one of the most important things to do when going with large tires.
