well, first thing is to find out what gears you are currently running. Then, use a gear chart to figure out what your rpms generally are at a certain speed. Follow the chart to the desired new tire size and see the difference on the rpm chart. usually there will be an idea, more mpg, more power. Of course this is not an exact science and things like 5spd trannies and varying torque ratings will affect the "actual" gains/losses, but I would start with that
