I have 30 by 9.5's and my father in law has 31 10.5s I pass him all the time on the highway. I would go with a 30 unless you want to be the last one home at the end of the day.

I'd go with the 29's. You'll keep some of your highway speed. Remember, Sammi's with stock tires can go almost anywhere!! So bigger is not always better.

If you WILL NOT change the gearing, stay small, bu get a little width.
