255/85/r16 or smaller for my truck

I have a 2011 V6 Auto 4x4 with a OME 3 inch lift on it. I am planning on getting some new tires to go on some 16 inch TRD wheels. I was thinking of going with the 255/85's because of their height. But will I lose alot of power and mpg by doing this? Or is it better to get a smaller tire. Thanks

Whats your other option? If its a 285/75/16 you will get better MPG and not feel as much of a power loss running the 255's

I want a tire around 33" but the other option is a smaller tire 32".I want 33" tires but I have heard from some that I would have to regear. Not sure if thats true or not. I was thinking the 255/85's are narrow so I would not have issues with rubbing. But not sure if the bigger tire will cause the truck to not preform that great.

The cooper s/t comes in a 255. Maybe you should look into it if you want an a/t.
