Biggest all terains w/no lift

I just bought 2006 limited 5.7L. I want to get it lifted but to much cash for now. What are the largest all terrains i can put on it w/no lift. Any other recommendations to make it more awesome welcome. I want a grill guard that covers the whole front end instead of just grill and headlights.

245/75R17, 255/75R17 or 265/70R17 will fit with monor rubbing and an all terrain i would prefer would be Goodyear Wrangler DuraTracs, they are an agressive all terrain tire and will perform outstanding

Those sizes won't fit without a lift. And you will still have slight rubbing until the pinch weld mod is done and the plastic inner fender well liner is heated up and pushed towards the rear.

He was asking what sizes would fit with no lift.

You can run a 245/70R17 or 255/65R17

Yeah there is something about the 245/75 BFGoodrich AT's with the way that they are made and the width of the tread that allows them to somehow work without wheel spacers. I bet if you had wheel spacers installed it would be a different story. When you say no rub, was that during normal driving or no rub period as in off road also.

Sure, if you dont plan on off roading and do the pinch weld mod

Thanks!

So without ANY OTHER MODS, these sizes will fit and not rub AT ALL?

I see several replys here, but I think several us want to make our wheels as aggressive as possible without any issues of hurting our vehicles in any manner...

So those two sizes will work without incident?
