Need help on choosing which chip to run

I have an 02 F-350. Last week, I put new rims and tires, 37". My fuel economy just went down and I need a chip to composate. Please inform me about a good milage chip, I don't care about power at all. I have a race car for that.

Stock for now and waiting for parts.
