Largest tires on Liberty stock rims?

Well, I tried the search but really didn't find any good thread stating what the largest tires a person can put on a Liberty's stock rims are without rubbing or any other issues. Can anybody tell me from experience? Thanks! Wife's car needs new tires. As we all know, the stock ones suck in the rain and snow!

Im not to sure about the tire size but thought I would add that I just put Bridgestone REVO's on my wife's truck and we love em... Great tread minimal road noise and they work great in the rain... waiting for snow, but I have read good reviews on them... Good Luck in your search

My stock Liberty came with the 225's. I upgraded the wheels to the Rubicon Moabs, that were fitted with the stock 245. Those rubbed bad, steering and over bumbs. I fitted new 235s Big'O Tires ATs and they are perfect. I don't go off road much and haven't been since the swap, so I cannot comment on the Big'Os, but they hold air and are quiet.

What profile (70 or 75) where the 245's? Don't the Rubicon wheels have a different width and backset?

Im not sure if there's another "Rubicon" wheel he might be referring to but:

Are 75 not 70 which is a 1" difference in diameter

245/70X16 will fit a stock rig fine. Almost the same diameter as stock.

It look the same tire and wheel as he has in his photos. 245/75's, No wonder they rub.
