New Tacoma guy, questions about tires and rims

Hello everyone!
Next week I'll be picking up my new 2013 TRD Sport, 4x4, DCSB, magnetic gray metallic. I've been lurking on this forum for two weeks trying to gather as much knowledge as I can. I want to make a few upgrades, keep in mind, i will not be taking it off road. i just want an aggressive look without breaking the bank. Looking to spend around $2,000. After reading thru the threads, I think I'm going to go with the Bilstein 5100's in the front with a 2" AAL in the rear. I also will be replacing the wheels and tires. So, here are my questions:

1) is the largest wheel I can do without any major trimming/chopping, 265/70/17 or could I do 275/70/17?

2) sticking with 17x8 wheels, what BS range? Anything 4.5 and over? Do I need a particular offset? Will I need spacers?

3) I'm looking for tires that look aggressive without too much road noise and won't reduce fuel economy too bad. Considering Nitto Terra Grapplers or Mickey Thompson MTZ's. Any suggestions?

Thank you for the help. Really looking forward personalizing my taco.
