You probably could but I think you'd be better off with a 10" or 10.5" for those...

Checking a couple tire size calculators:
275-40-17 recommended rim width 9-11in, overall diameter 25.66in

315-35-17 recommended rim width 10.5-12.5in, overall diameter 25.68in
Here are couple good tire size calculators to bookmark:

first tire size calc link: http://www.1010tires.com/TireSizeCalculator.asp?action=submit

another one: http://www.dakota-truck.net/TIRECALC/tirecalc.html

I'd think you'd need the wider rim width. -Joe
