    I was looking into getting a set of BFG Mud terrain KM2. I know that i want to get a 33 inch tire and was looking at either the 255/85/16 or the 285/75/16. I was wondering would the lighter and skinnier 255/85/16 provide better gas mileage than the 285/75/16...and if so how much difference. I will be putting these tires on my 06 Tacoma with a 3 inch lift and Built Right UCAs...will i need to use wheel spacers to fit on my truck with the stock TRD offroad wheels? Thanks
