95 4cyl 5spd MPG?

I just got myself a 95 Wrangler with 53,300 miles on it, and 31x10.5 tires without any lift. (Yes, they do rub on things sometimes, that will hopefully be taken care of soon). Reading the specs I should be getting about 19MPG, however I seem to be getting about 15MPG. Are the bigger tires enough to make that big of a difference? If not, what else should I be looking at? BTW I run super in it.

I have a '95 4 banger, with 31x10.5 Goodyear AT/S tires. I went from 20 mpg to 18 mpg (city) when I went with the larger tires. What kind of tread, and how much pressure are you running? MT/r's would probably be a little less on mileage than all terrains, and lower pressure would also be less mpg.

I get about 10 mpg due to stock gears and a bad catalytic converter(hard top & doors)

Thanks for the replies...they are Wild Country Radial TXRs running at 32PSI right now. They were actually studs, and the guy I bought it from took the time to pull all of the studs out because he didn't have the $$ to buy new tires :-)

probably has alot to due with your tires and how you drive,do you often find your foot to the floor due to the 4 bangers power output.
