285/55 will be smaller than stock.
all of them can be as they are similar in size (height):
775.2
787.2
770.7

285/60x18 is 799.2 this one might be too big.
It is hard to say what is the max. Keep in mind that by changing size you affect not only speedometer readings, but brakes effectiveness, overall stability, turning radius, and so on.
At some point you will start uneven wear if the larger wheels are not correctly installed.

thanks

Thanks. I can only imagine the heat there. I will have to keep those tires in mind the next time I buy tires. The orginal hankooks were very noisy.
