The "correct" width tires for 8.5" and 9.5" rims are 245 and 275 respectively. 295's are a full 20mm too wide (.787" or around 3/4") which is why they are scraping. Look on the web at what tires usually come with wheel/tires combo's for those wheel sizes and you will see none of them come with 295's. A 295 is more appropriate for 10.5" rims and that would require a different offset and/or modification to the wheel wells/fenders to fit on a Z.

I am not saying that you cannot mount 295's I am just saying they are not optimum for a 9.5" rim. Get 275's and yell at the person who sold you the 295's.
