Replacement tires

I have a 2011 Jeep Wrangler with stock rims and tires 255/75/r17 ... I purchases a teraflex leveling kit.. So I can so some off road... What is the biggest tire size recommended for my stock rims? And what is the safest for driving pavement too! As I normally have my kids on the street ? Thanks

Well, with stock wheels and no wheel spacers you are limited by width. So you could do a 275/70-17 if you wanted and it would look better and wider but it would be the same diameter. Or, you can go 255/80-17 and it'll not be any wider but it'll be taller. Those are really your only options.

If you buy new wheels or if you use wheel spacers then you can get a larger tire under there. I've seen 305 series tires on stock wheels and it worked OK but was definitely the maximum width I'd go on a stock wheel. At that point the sidewalls are starting to bulge pretty good.
