Are 32's too much for a 3.7L to drag around?

The whole set of take offs with 10 miles on them is $750. I have researched some topics and understand that they will fit, however I'm worried they will be too tall for the 3.7L and its already unspectacular gearing.

Also, how does everyone like those tires? It gets nasty in Ohio and I would hate to get these and have to replace the tires right away. I currently love my 255/65/17 Destination AT's.

I have 255/75/17 on my WK with the 3.7L. Definitely noticed a slight power/MPG loss, but nothing too crazy. I think I get 15 MPG around town, 19 on the highway. I would take these bigger mud tires over stock size tires any day, so I guess it's not too much of a bother to me.

The Desti's will be better in the snow than the take-offs will be
