Sometimes MPG takes a back seat to functionality. Don't get me wrong, 48" tires are pretty much useless, but there are uses for a truck where 30" tires just won't cut it.
I live in the Mountains where we see over 3ft at a time a few times a year and have NEVER been stuck with 30in tyres.....And I agree, huge tyres don't do much good, especially if you don't know how to drive in the slicky stuff.
