Largest tire for Stock KK Limited 17"

I have a KK Limited with the stock 235/65/17 and I'm wondering what the largest tire would be that I could fit without much rubbing and without a lift...would a 245/70/17 work?

I would like to know the answer to this as well.My "09 KK has 235/65/17s on it now on stock OEM 17"x7"rims(I don't know what the stock offset is) and stock suspension.I picked up a set of 17"x7"(40 offset) rims, to put some more aggressive tires on for the winter,and the tires that I'm interested in are 245/70/17(this is the smallest 17" they list and are 30.5" high).Would these tires fit without a lift without rubbing?

I've been reading that the 245/75/16 and 245/70/17 tires are very close in size and that several people are running the 16" on stock rims and no lift.The only thing that has me wondering is that my aftermarket 17x7 rims are 40 offset and I don't know what the offset of the stock 17s are.Does anybody know what the stock 17x7 offset is and if so do you think my aftermarket 17"x7" 40 offset will still be OK with the 245/70/17 tires.Any info will be greatly appreciated.Thanks in advance.
