Boost alloy tire size?

Do any one know if 265/75R16 is the largest tire I can put on the "tombraider" Boost alloys, I think the wheels are 7x16? The defender is a standard without any lift and so on. Can I use 285/75 or 265/85? I tried to get an answer in Sweden but no one knows.

Made it further than half of the other guys, but the Hammers won.

Fredrik - the 75 profile is wrong - go with a 235/85/16 and it is taller (31.8") but not too tall. Will fit perfect on a 7" wheel.

If you can get the Michelin XZLs in Sweden, go with the 8.25 x 16s. Best looking tire on a D90 - IMHO. They're about 33" tall. DJ Menasco from this board runs them on his D90 and so does John Lee from Expedition Exchange. Perhaps DJ will see this and post a pic of his D90. They should fit the 7" wheel with no problems.
