17" offroad edition Wheels on standard 4x4-Best tire size?
 
Hello, I have a 2000 1500 QC 4x4 Laramie, it came with the stock 16" 3 spoke wheels with the optioned 265/75/16 tires. Here is the truck now....

Anyway, I have just bought a set of the 17" Off-road edition wheels......these

I want to know what is the best sized tire for me to run without rubbing issues. Will a 285/75/17 in something like a Firestone Destination A/T fit just fine? Any help will be appreciated. Thanks!!

I run 285/70/17s I think. Kelly Safari Trex. I do have the off road package but there is a lot of room.

Love them. Did great last winter, goes right through puddles, and are not very noisy on the highway. My dad likes them too, his are 10 plys and mine are the 8s. My friend also has them on his 1-ton ferd and says they have been great for him too.
