275 is about as wide as you want to go on the stock rims, any more and you will have baloon tires that will handle like doo doo, some places wont even mount them. With 275s you will have some rubbing at front, but the rear will fit, I ran this for a while. If you decide to use the 295s in the back you need to buy wider rims and you will need to get front tires that are 255 or less (for not rubbing) and that are the same overall height as the rear tires or you will destroy the transfer case (this is moot if you have a 2wd.)
