Default 17" TRX wheel / tire help (w/pic)

How wide are the factory wheels? I am thinking about going up from a 275/70r17 to a 295/70r17. I think this wheel will be wide enough but I dont know if I need different wheels for offset to clear the suspension. It also looks like BFG or maybe terra grapplers are the only tires I see in this size but the BFGs seem to get great ratings. If I do need wheels I probably have to go to an 18" wheel. I want tires at least an inch taller and +/- 1 inch wider but I don't want to hurt my handling too much especially in the rain. One thing I know for sure is that the factory wheel and tire setup looks weak and I am not crazy about most of the aftermarket wheels that I see.
