Lift/Tire help?

I'm putting a RRO 2" lift on my 2008 jeep patriot, but I'm trying to figure out with what tire size to go with without changing wheel/rim.

the tire place suggested
235/65 R17

will this look okay?

HELP!

I have 245/65-17, I recommend getting spacers, so you don't rub. 235/65-17's will look great!

Yes, I have the RRO lift.

Here is some info on tire sizes:

http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tirete....jsp?techid=46

the first number is how wide the tread is, in mm, so a 245 is 1cm wider than a 235. the 2nd number is how tall the side wall is to the width, so 65 is 65%, so a 245/65 is slightly wider and taller than a 235/65. and the last number is the wheel size 17 = 17"
