Widest tire that fits a 17 X 8.5 rim

I'm trying to figure out what tires I can reasonably go with. Nitto NT05 is what I'm leaning towards just not sure of width, maybe 275?

see my post in the useful thread about tires. there is a convertor and even a tool where you can see what a tire will look like on a specific rim.
