Tyre sizes sidewall

I have a set of 275/60/17 on a 9.5 inch rim and I want to put a set of 285/60/17 on them, can anyone please tell me how much sidewall buldge difference there would be if any?

Thanks for the info

It also depends on the tire itself. Sizes will actually very between manufactures and models. At any rate it won't be much.

The Tire Rack web site gives dimensions for all their tires, including size at the sidewall.
