Im new here so you may want fact check my advice however. I think when you go from 285 to 295 it bumps up the load rating from C to D. goes from 6ply to 10 ply.

Which discoverer? I think those AT3 might be available in the 285/75r17. Which would be a little taller and a little narrower than the 290/70r17. If your looking for height???

295/70 & 295/75 are the same width (both about 11.6" wide). The 75's would be taller overall, around 34.4", compared to 33.25" for the 70 series. Me, I'd go with the 75's for the clearance and the look. Skinny tires don't look good on Jeeps.

I have 285s on my jeep and they rubbed on the sway bar a bit (already took off the air dam). Add another .4", you are going to rub more.

Width inches (mm) 11.22 (285) 11.61 (295)

I have the Cooper ST Maxx in 295/70 17 and they measure about 33.5". I needed 1.25" spacers to be able to turn lock to lock without rubbing.
