Default pics of biggest tires available on stock 4x4?

I have a TRX4 4x4 and want to pass on a lift. I am not excited about a level because of all the problems I have read about but I think it may need a couple of inched in the front.
The only problem with the truck - the factory 275/70 17s wheels and tires are weak looking! I am open to new wheels if I need to get them but I will use this on the beach a lot so I want plenty of rubber (I don't want a low profile setup).

Who has put bigger rubber on a stock 4x4? I'm not looking for a monster truck set up at all. On a scale from 1-10 the truck size is a 10 and the tires seem to be an 7. How big can you go without rubbing and do you have pics you can share? I would love to see how big the tires can be with or without a level kit thanks!

Not having fit tires to your body style I'd have to hazard a guess.

A 285/70RX17 should fit without rubbing. Going taller, say to a 35, will be a squeeze and I suspect that they will rub under suspension compression. Any wider and they will rub on the inside without going to an after market wheel with a less positive offset wheel.

What has worked well for me in the past is to go to a local tire and wheel shop and have them mount up tires to your stock wheels and give them a try. Most are willing to do this at no charge.

We have a 2011 (or 4th generation section) but there's no need to post this there or in two sections. By the way, this got moved to Tires and Wheels where it belongs.
