Depending on which style rim you have they could be 16 or 17. If you have a pic of them I could tell you by just seeing that. But you can fit 285 with no scrubbing and 295 with just a bit of scrubbing. I have 295 70 17 on 17x10 wheels and they scrub only when I cut it real deep.

But you can get a leveling kit from hell bent steel for 60 bucks and they will not scrub at all if you want to go with 295. This is what I did.
