285/75/16 or 295?

Hey guys, so i have a 2004 2wd Edge, right now im running 285/75/16.
I want to get Nitto Terra Grapplers but i don't know if i should stick with 285/75 or if i can go up to 295/75.
Right now all i have is a t-bar crank. 1 inch body lift is somewhere in the future but tires definitely need to come first.

So im just looking for some opinions on whether you think i should stick with what i have or if i can go a little bigger.
Thanks.

Btw, this truck never sees dirt, just a daily and show truck.

295 will be wider. Do your 285's rub? on stock wheels(which it looks like you also have) my 265's rubbed the swaybar. Pull the swaybar if you want to go a little wider i guess

It's going to be a TIGHT fit with those 295's. I rub with my 285's on the sway bar. Well I did with stock wheels.

My 285's barely rub at all, so i guess it could make it work, it's not too big of a jump.

Yea you could make it work. You might want to do a body lift though.

I would recommend staying with 285's unless you plan on putting the 1" or 3" BL in.

From a 285 to 295 that is a 1" taller tire and .5" wider tire too. I am not sure if they would fit. But either 285 or 295 are offered in a D ply rating which is good. An E rating would make your truck ride like poopy.
