285/75r16 vs 305/70r16

i am going with 3" toytec spacers, 1.5" downey shackles and either 2 or 3 inch rb bodylft.... .... the only difference is the width... the 285 is a 11.3" width and the 305 is a 12" width.... .... i dont think i want to hassle with a 3" bl! i am leaning towards 305 because of its more aggressive look.... also... i am running 16x8 eagle alloys...

1. should i go 285/75r16 or 305/70r16???
2. would i need the 3" bl to run the 305/70r16 or would it be ok with the 2"
3. would it decrease my mpg a lot more then the 285???
4. which tire would you choose?

look here first: LIFT / TIRES FAQ

1. & 2. You'll need the body lift for either tire if you wheel, 3" would give you the clearance you'll need for the trail.
3. Not appreciably.
4. skip the b/l & go with 31x10.5 if you wheel

If you are going with all of that, go with the 285's. I have a set on the same rims and they look awesome. I have about 5 to 6 inches of lift with my setup. Bigger tires will almost always decrease MPG without re-gearing, by how much, it's hard to say.

Good Luck

Not yet, since I have to finish the install, but I can post a picture of the tires and rims.
