    I'd go with 285's and wheel spacers to give it a meaner look. ;)

    Yes they will throw the speedo off by a few MPH depending on how fast your going and you will probably lose a few MPG thats for sure.

    Go with 285s and don't look back or worry about the drop in MPG;).

    This is 285/75/16 which is the same as 285/70/17.

    You could split the difference and go with 275/70/17. There aren't many options at that size but Discount Tire usually has 4 or 5 to choose from. And I don't think 275s will rub much if at all with a lift.
