    the widest you can go is a 285 on those wheels and i would keep the 40 sidewall.

    i ran 295s on my stock 10 bolt and will be putting 315s on in a few months. as long as you dont beat the heck out of the rear you should be alright

    The tread difference between 275s and 285/295s is not worth the price difference.
