New Tires for Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited

It's time for new tires on our Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (2014) and I am looking for suggestions on a good replacement. The Jeep is a daily driver and doesn't really see any off-road action. My wife is the primary driver and she has a long commute (65 miles round trip) on a lot of country roads. We live in northern Illinois so snow can be an issue. I'm looking for a good tire that will handle inclement conditions (snow and rain) well, yet hold up pretty well.

Ideally we'd like to increase the height and/or width and have a more aggressive tire, but don't want to add a lift kit (don't want to spend the money and kill the gas mileage). We wouldn't be opposed to adding wheel spacers though. Right now we have the stock wheel and tires on it (5 spoke wheels and Goodyear Wrangler tires). Am I correct that the biggest tire I could put on would be 255/80/17 without spacers (no off roading)?

I have Yokohama geolandars G015’s and I love them in ALL weather conditions! Not sure if it fits more aggressive but as a daily driver myself these tires have been great. Snow, Ice, rain, dirt roads etc!
