What are the largest tires you can fit on the R51 on stock suspension without rubbing/causing issues?

I don't see a need in my case for any sort of lift but I do drive in some sandy conditions and would like to get some AT tires when I am due next.

2012 Silver Edition

Thanks!

I have an ‘05 LE with 17” wheels. I replaced the front struts with factory stuff, and put the AirRide bags in the back.
I just put 255/75 R17 Goodyear Wrangler Duratraks on there, and they clear. They come close to rubbing the front mud flap while turning, but no contact. I love the tires so far, especially with the winter we’re having.
Discount Tire was great to work with ordering the right size, and verifying fitment when the tires arrived. I ordered 5 of them to have a matching spare, and it fits fine, as well. I don’t have any pictures on the forum, but I could email you some if you want.

Also consider upgrading your brakes before adding the additional rotating mass of larger tires.

2011 SV here. I have stock 17s and run 265/70/17. Raises the height about an inch which was good for me as I didn't want to do an actual lift. Info is in my signature. Also, if you've never driven with larger tires before, your gas mileage will drop depending on the size and the load rating of it. I went with C rated tires and lost about 1 mpg going to the larger size. I suppose if you went with P rated tires the difference would not be too crazy. My stock tire size is 265/65/17.

Thanks for the info, this is what I have been leaning toward with the size and BFG AT's. The extra inch of height is more than enough anyways!
