Rim and tire size

Hello, would anyone have an idea of how big of tires and rims that I can go without having to lift a 2011 unlimited sport? Want to have a good size tire so there is not too big of a gap between the wheels and body. Any suggestions? Thanks

How/where are you driving this thing? Roads? Off-pavement? How much travel is left in your suspension (measure axle to bump stop)? Is this less than the gap between your tires and the inside of the wheel wells? If so, figure out the difference, leave a little off as a cushion, and you know how much larger you can go without hitting important things...

Driving mainly on pavement, truck is new. Ok so measuring it with cushion should give me a better idea. Perfect I thing I can do that. Thanks for the push in the right direction. Thanks

Don't take offense, just a little ribbing. Careful calling your Jeep anything other than a Jeep. Mostly you get ribbed a little in all good fun.
