Your right about the rotational mass of the tires also effecting the power loss, especially w/the 22r(e) motors, however that can be helped some /aluminum wheels instead of steel, and some engine mod's.

I'd take 215's and 4.10's over 35's and 5.29's any-day for driving on the road. My toyota is SLOW!

I understand completely.  I have 5.29's and 35's w/my '91, and it isn't all that enjoyable to drive performance wise, but then again it is basically a single purpose rig, and I am never in that much of hurry when heading wheeling.  If I had to drive it daily, I think I would run 33's for street use.  I know a lot of people prefer to run one gear taller than the tire size w/the 22r(e), for better highway performance.
'90 black X-cab mod'd 3.0, 33's/4.88's, rear ARB, custom bumpers, sliders, safari rack, etc.
'91 Blue X-cab 22re, 35's/5.29's,Truetrac front, ARB rear, dual cases, and custom Safari flatbed, bumper, interior.
