245/70/16 vs. 245/75/16 New Tires for my 2010 Liberty?

The cheap Good Year Wrangler stock tires are wearing out with 29,000 miles. I would like to buy new tires next week. I've been reading on this blog, that 245/70/16's are as big as I can get without rubbing, although some seem to think 245/75/16's will work too.
I am contemplating between Hankook Dynapro ATM's or maybe the MT's.
I live on a bumpy dirt road here in Abiquiu, New Mexico and it gets a little muddy when out snow melts. I would like a beefy looking tire that will work well on snowy road but also not much road noise on dry paver roads.
A friend recommends Bridgstone Revo's???
Thank in advance for your feedback. Jeff

I personally wouldn't run the 245/75/16 tire unless you're lifting it. Yes one person has had luck with putting it on without rubbing, but in the past couple years I have been browsing the Liberty forums there has been nothing but trouble with that size. When the stock springs begin to sag I would definitely expect them to start rubbing against the fender well.

Hell, I have 245/75/16 with a 2.5" lift and I still have some rubbing.
