They were large enough you cant fun any srot fo mud flap, but i ddint really care. you MAY be able to step up to a 305/70, but you woiuld have to crank the torsion bars int eh front or trim the lower bumper to keep from scrubbing.
IF i were you i would step down to a 16 or 15 inch rim and get a 9-9.5 width. That would allow you to get more tire in your wheel wells (which qwould allow more side bite) and you would have a better selection of tires due to the 15 and 16 inch wheels have been a roudn a little longer. I wouldnt go too wide of a rim due to the IFS. You will be putting front end parts and bearings in it if you go too wide.
