Wj Largest tire size for stock 2000 WJ Limited???

Hello everyone i am in need of two back tires so i figured i would get all four and go bigger than what i already have (stock goodyear wrangler). So my question is, what is the largest tire size i can put on without causing rubbing and also without a lift ? Thanks everyone

30" overall tire size, 255/65/17

Keep in mind That differ tires Are differ size Even in same size width and profile, due to differ thread depth.

I would say 255/65/17

Max size from factory was 245/70/16 or 245/65/17 about a 29" tire.

Read size off your tire, That will tell you how big of a rim you got.
