What tire size can I run?

Hey all. Soon I will be returning from military training back to my beloved '05 WK. And I have a question. I'm starting to shop for tires to mount on my stock wheels. I will be running the RRO 2.25" lift with the longer Monroe LLs on the back. I was thinking of running 265/70/17 to get something a bit beefier with no rubning or very minor rubbing at full lock. Preferrably none obviously. Keep in mind I am not going to be doing the pinch weld mod for some time so that's not going to make an impact. Can I run this size no problem on that setup?

Ok. Just saw that. Thanks for the link. So 265 would be fine then without needing to do the pinch weld mod correct?
