I'm intrigued by your photo - what wheels are these?17x8 et40 are my choice. Fitment is perfect with 295/70/17. No cutting or mods needed at all.
For 275 width you do not need to mod anything regarding tire fitment up to ~33". For a 295 you'd only need, theoretically, a -50mm offset wheel vs factory -60 to clear the same space as oem inside. Anything further from the hub (ie lower et number or more positive offset value) is making it more likely to have contact at the fender liner, fender, washer reservoir, etc... Therefore, the smaller your tire diameter can be for any given level of modification.
Shoot for 40 offset if you ask me.
