2010 sport max tire size

I just purchased a 2010 sport with 16" rims. What is the largest tire I can install without lifting it or encountering rubbing problems?
Thanks for the help!

I'm pretty sure that you could fit a KM2 255/85-16 in there.
It would rub the rear fenders at full-stuff but not horribly.
You should be more concerned about gearing and such though.

I have a set of 255 85 16 Interco TruXus MT mounted on stock 16" wheels. No rubbing yet, will try them out at full flex to see. I measured them at exactly 32" tall(They are slightly taller than stock Rubicon tires and are the same width wise) and don't expect any rubbing in the hard stuff.

Re-gearing will probably be needed if you have stock 3.21 gears but that's up to you to decide.
