I went with 10" x 20" for a 285 tire. This fits perfectly within the fenders and there are many tire choices. Larger tires will likely hurt your performance and mileage.

What, you've got 315 tires on 11.5" wide wheels on F10.

I have set of new tires from my Supra which is gone.

Front I think 295/30/20 and rear 345/30/20 or 335/30/20

I hope I can fit them in

So I had to look at some of your threads, and found that you've got 22" wheels.
http://f10.5post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=700618

So I assume you've got 305/25/22 on 22x11.5 in the rear then.

Was the other F10 you've seen with 12" wide rear 22" too?
