Good tire size?

Will these fit without rubbing on a stock libby? 245/75r/16 on moabs...

Also what has been your experience with larger tires and your mpg.

They rub like no tommorrow.Try 245/70R16's on the stock KJ rims,some may rub and other may not depending on tread design.Going to 245/75's you will loose alot of mpg's,speedo will be off,and right at the tire size that regearing should be done.
