What Tire Size To Run

I have a 07 tacoma 4door with 20" Enkei Deep Six wheels.I will be installing my lift on wednesday. http://www.toyteclifts.com/index.php...mart&Itemid=72
I have decided i am going to go with Cooper Zeon Ltz.My dad has them on his 06 tundra xsp and i love them.
The tire sizes are:
255/50-20(my current tire size, deff too small for the lift, 30" tall)
285/50-20(31.2" tall)
275/60-20(i think these will be perfect, 33" tall)
275/55-20(31.9" tall)

also the price for the 33's are about 10$ a tire more over the other ones?
considering this: http://www.ebay.com/itm/4-NEW-275-60...ht_1927wt_1141

My main concern is that i will hurt my MPG by switching from 30's to 33's. I am currently getting 18+ mpg. If i had to, i guess id make the sacrifice for 16 mpg? What are yall getting on 33's?

I am aware that the speedometer will be off by about 6 mph at 65.(actual speed will be 71, if i remember correct) which shouldnt be too big of a deal. I will possibly get a new gear later on.

ALSO, miles are 99.9% highway!

Help is greatly appreciated!

You are getting 18 MPG on the hwy? Stock I get 23 MPG unless I am doing 70-75 then it's usually 21ish.

I'd say just go with what you want 33"s will look meaner and better.

My tank average is about 18.(330/18=13.3) with regular 87 gas. I usually do about 80-85 down the I85. The only upgrades engine wise are a Borla exhaust.

Also, i have a second gen.

thanks for your input!

Everything ive read suggests you will lose 1-3 mpg, but your driving style affects that as much as the tires do.

No one rolls 33's for fuel efficiency tho.

Stock to a 33.15" I went from 21 highway to 17 and from 17 mixed to 13. Lost 4 mpg highway and city. My tires are heavy E rated mud tires too. I say expect 3 mpg loss... if its less be thankful.

I have the Enkei deep six wheels as well. Currently I have 275/55 20 Hankook Dynapro ATm's. No lift. Just rubs the mudflaps in full lock reverse. I'm just going to put 5100's @ 1.75 and an AAL. So at 3", maybe 33's might be better.
