Any Ideas Appreciated

Just purchased an 06 Dodge Ram 2500 BigHorn with 5.9 Cummins from my boss. It's completely stock except for some fender flares he had put on and was planning to put rims and tires with. Which he never got done. Looking for ideas on how to get the tire to fender flare ratio looking a lil better. Don't know if should stay with stock rims and bigger tires or if need to go up to a 9 or 10 inch rim. Would like to get the biggest, widest tire I can, not wanting to lift but don't mind trimming up some plastic so don't rub as long as it will look wide and stocky. Any suggestions appreciated, and my apologies if I didn't do or post this correctly, first time.

Read this, a lot of good info, is your truck 4x4? 285/75/17 is a great size for stock trucks, just about 34 inches by 11.5

Appreciate the info. Yes it's 4x4. It has 295x70x17, I had assumed these were the stock size. But after doing some looking, I see now that they are not. I'm hoping to be able to fit some 33x12.50's or possibly even 35's but not quite sure if they'll fit yet. And I live out in BFE, so I've gta let tire shop know what I want so they can order, so I'll be stuck with whatever size I have them get.
