    I just recently bought a set of moto metal wheels. Theyre 17X9 with 12mm offset and 4 1/2" backspace. Can anyone help me with choosing a tire size? I want 32'' tires that will no rub with a 3'' lift. Im not sure if i need 255/75/17 or 265/70/17. Any recomendations? Also does anyone have an idea on how many MPG of gas i will be losing with this set up? Thanks for the help.

    255/75 17 and 275/70 17 are right around 32". Less chance of rubbing with the 255.

    You can easily fit 265s. I fit 285s and had minor rubbing

    You can go 265/70s for sure with no rubbing, and you could go 285/70 with a little trimming of inner fender plastic.
