I've run both the Austone and the Dunlop WinterSport.
There is Zero mileage (mpg) difference between the two, despite the different rpm's at cruise due to different tire diameters. The Austone lasted 30k, and the WinterSports 20k

That said, I prefer the (smaller) Wintersport's ride... and (not applicable to a trike) it makes the bike easier to get on/off off.
