New JK Owner Looking for advice on tires/rims

Hey guys and ladies, I have just purchased my first Jeep a few days ago so I apologize about my newb status ahead of time. I bought a black 4 door manual Unlimited Sport but the tires are way too small for my liking. They are just the P225/75/R16. This is my daily driver with soon to be some off-road.

I would like 17" rims with a bigger tires so I was wondering what's the largest size tire I could get without a lift or spacers because I've heard a few different opinions. Would it be P255/75/R17?

Or would 1.5" spacers open up a lot more options?

Also what tires and rims would you all recommend?

My questions I'm sure has been answered a zillion times but I would appreciate the help.. Thanks everyone!

Congrats on the new Jeep. Just a heads up, some ppl get aggravated when members don't even try the search option before plaguing the forum with the same questions over and over.
Sometimes this leads to questions not being answered. Give it a try, use the "search this thread" button, I am sure you'll get a zillion answers
I don't really have any of the info you are looking for but someone will chime in soon.
Best of luck, and welcome!
