Can 285/70-17 tires fit on a 17x8 rim?

I have 265/70-17 right now and I want to go bigger.

Thanks

Then yes, they will fit, but you will prob have to trim a little. You might have some rubbing.

Also I was looking at 305/65-17 Procomp Xtreme All Terrains. They measure (from the Procomp site) 32.6 x 12.1 x 17, which is a little shorter then the 285's which measure around an even 33", But there a good bit wider.

I wonder it these tires would rub less? idk
