I believe a 285/70R17 is a 33" tall tire, if you crank the t-bars you could possibly fit 35s but it'll be close. Of course I'm all for cramming big meats into small areas though.

This is true...mine hates doing anything under 75 on the interstate right now. I'm just assuming(bad idea I know) since shes already got 33s that the gears in it would be able to handle 35s as well.
