Upgraded tires for stock wheels

What are the largest tires i can put on my stock 17 x 7.5 wheels? If this seems like a dumb question, im asking because it seems like the wheel width is restricting the tire height. When i shop around all the tires have "recommended for wheel sizes" of 8.5 or wider...

You can fit 285/70-17 on a 7.5" rim. The overall tire diameter is 32.75"

BF G makes the (MT T/A KM2) in LT255/80R17 which is 33.3". That is basically the same tires that's stock on the rubicon with an aspect ratio of 80 instead of 75. I was looking for something bigger than that! Thx tho....

The subtle mods make it uniquely mine without destroying the original beauty! But most people looking at the forest will never see the trees!!!!
