You'll probably end up losing some milage but those actually look pretty damn nice so who cares.

Alrighty....

245/75R16 = 30.47" tall
285/55R20 = 32.34" tall

Answer...yes, you will lose mileage. But not much since your still going with all terrains. You might lose 1 mpg. I'd suggest doing a torsion crank to clear those 32s...maybe even a 1" body lift.

A 3in BL will look great with those tires. It will give you more wheel well gap. With those new tires it should be a pretty sweet set up.
