How big can I go w/o a lift

I just bought my first Jeep. I purchased a 2012 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara.

I want to get mud tires, but I'm not sure how big I can go.

I currently have 255/70-18.

I do not want to lift the jeep and just want to get meaty tires.

Thinking about Mickey Thompson MTZ or BF Goodrich.

Can any one tell me how large I can go without having any rubbing issues.

Also would like 17 inch rims.

265/70R17s on 17x8s are the safe choice. 32x10.5. Definitely will fit with no rubbing at all. No taller than stock, and only a touch wider.

285/70R17s are a possibility. 33x11.5. Might rub a little bit, but I don't know for sure. Maybe the JK guys will chime in.
