Hi Barca, try giving us a little more information about your jeep so that others can chime in and offer suggestions.

285/70/17 should work well in maybe a Falken A/T or Nitto terra grappler is very good on the road.

Yeah BFG's will fit as well. Better to get a slight lift for wheeling, I like the stock Rubi wheels and thought I'd stick with'em For a while. I can always by a bigger offroad 35" wheel tyre combo later.
Check the weight as-well the BFG's 285/70/17 AT's are nearer to stock weight, than most and no rub at full lock.
Will rub at full disconnected articulation,
waiting on parts to arrive before I take mine wheeling.
