Need new tires for my H2s

Picked up a set of good H2s a while back and its about time for new tires. I am running 285/75/16s right now with slight rubbing when I hit a bump and have the wheel turned all the way, not a big deal. I would like to get slightly bigger tires on my next set than I have now, but I don't want something really wide that is going to stick out a lot. I was hoping I could get BFG ATs or Toyo ATII's in 295/70-17s but those tires aren't offered in that size. Do yall have any suggestions on a different size or different tire that fits my needs? Thanks.

I would like to stay with something less aggressive, most likely an all terrain tire. Any other ideas?

Not really much difference between a 285 and 295. If you like the AT II, I would get the 285's !

I am runnikng 305/65/17E's on mine. the are BFG KM2's. They fit well, not sure if they make it in that size in AT's. But the KM2's have given me plenty of miles. I am surprised that I have gotten as many miles as I have on them. I am currently at about 40k and still have pleanty of tread left. 60k looks to be very possible.

Toyo AT 2s in 285/75/17s are $260 each at discount tire. Anyone know where I could get a better price?
