I am running 285/70/17 Nitto on my 2014 JKU with a 2.5" lift and 3:73 gears. I am happy with it.

Hey there....!newbie, I just got my first Jeep. 2015 unlimited sport. It has stock rims and wheels. 225/75/R16. What can I increase wheel size to with out lifting it. Is there an advantage to increasing the wheel diameter from 16 to 17?
