Default Any ideas for better gas mileage on my 2005 z71 tahoe?

I have a leveling kit and im running 285/70/17 procomp xtreme mud terrain. Since i did this, my gas mileage has dropped by about .3 mpg. I will be keeping this car for a long time, so i think it will be worth the investment to upgrade it so it will get more gas mileage. I was thinking of something like the K and N cold air intake system. Any other ideas?
