OK, you need to know the width of your rim then use this calculator to see how big you can go.

Alternatively ask a tyre distributor as they should be able to advise how wide you can go without the risk of the tyre popping off the rim. I would thing 375 - 400 would be about the widest, but I'm no expert.
