No lift, but want new rims and tires (JK)

I like the stock '07 Wrangler (JK) rims on my Jeep, however I want a more stout and aggressive tire. Without lifting my Jeep, what is the largest tire I can put on my Jeep?
And if I do replace entire rim and wheels, what size should I get?
I will lift Jeep in the future and I have the money, just not too high of a priority for the lift.

Any input is appreciated, thanks.

If I do have to lift my Jeep, will a 2" body lift give me clearance for a little bigger tires and rims?

I have a 265/70/17 on mine which I believe translates to a 32x10.50x17 with a set of nitto tgs and I get zero rub. I have a stock 2007 2d X.

Pretty sure a 32 is as big as you can go with no lift.

I have a 2007 JK Sahara and the tires are 255/70R18 so, about 32"
With only a BB lift you can get 33" ... i intend to do the same thing.

I'm just not sure if i want 15" or 16" wheels.
