If it is stock ride height "YET" then 245-70-16s
Most likely you are sagged a good amount so they may rub
Measure from middle of the hub, left front , to bottom of the flare and report back
I've had them roll into my place 3-4 years old with 75,000 miles be 1.5 inches lower than new stock height
also include build date ( if before April 12, 2002 )

I have an 02 Liberty Sport 4X4 and before lifting it, the biggest size I could get on it was a Goodyear 235/70/15. Since I lifted the front 2.5" and the rear 2" I now have 245/75/15 Goodyear Duratracs and love them. I ran 3 sets of the Walmart Goodyear Wrangler Authority tires and they were very good. Long life, wear smooth as long as you keep your alignment good, rotate every 5,000 miles. I only rotate tires from front to rear, not in the typical X pattern. Then after 2 1/2 years I had them de-mounted, flipped around and re-mounted and kept them on the same side of the vehicle. What that basically does is moves the inside of the tire to the outside and keeps it rolling in the same direction. Each set lasted over 5 years ! The new Duratracs cost considerably more but they are much quiter. I've had the Duratracs on for a year now and so far, they seem to be doing excellent. They work very well off road, as did the Walmart ones

265-75-16 Duratracs lasted me 95,000 miles on the 04
rotated the correct way, rears straight to the front, fronts crossed to rear every 4000 miles or so
