Depends,how much cutting and pounding are you willing to do?

If none then 245/75R16's on the stock rims,maybe.

This about what you would look like with a 2.5" suspension lift with the equivalent of 245/75/16's - these are 245/70/17's on JK Moabs

With a regular size lift 2.5 to 3 inches you're good using 245-75s like mentioned above.
Something to think about, going bigger you have to lift more , then you lose power and mileage so then you have to regear and then....get the idea it never ends. So go with an OME full spring lift, 245-75s and be done Even with the 245-75s you should knock the pinch welds over. I know some who have to cut the stock front bumper even with 245-75s

245-75-16s just a lift and enjoy
If say you want to go to 265-75-16s then you have to go to 4.10 gear front and rear, possibly do more cutting of the fender wells , etc . You could easily spend another 1500 or so real quick.
For a quick reference
mine on the left has 265-75-16s
one on the right belongs to my friend Chris has 245-75-16s
