What's the best tire I can go with for the stock 17" Rims? (Rear)

So, I don't know how *Gulp* but the back tires.... They have no tread left... *Gulp*

So, What I did for now, I rotated them, But I'd like to have them replaced...

I want to put the 215's in the front again and go with a bigger tire on the stock 17x8.5" rim..

I believe the biggest size I can go with is 255's, Right? If so, What's the best tire size to go with for stock 17x8.5" rim on a car with a 1.5"-1.7" (Not 100% sure how much of a drop its going to be when I get it back) drop?

Don't go bigger than 255 tire on stock rims I barely got a 275 tire to bead up to stock rims and almost half the tire was worn, 255 would be perfect. 275 nitto tire would work because their sizes are actually smaller. 255 any other brand.
