MPG conversion

Can anyone tell me what the factory wheel/tire size for the '87 YJ was? I am trying to figure out my MPG more accurately since I have 33s on the YJ now. I need to do a little math if anyone can help me out with an answer.

Thanks!

205/75-15 is 27.1
225/75-15 is 28.3

8 inch wide tires. I cant remember which one came on which packages, chances are smaller to 4 cylinder. with the larger on the 6, and biggest on the renegade or sahara or sport package.

Just to toss it out there, you can check on your axle gearing and get the speedometer adjusted as well.
