Max tire size WK *Bilstein*

Lookin for some advice on new tires...

After an unfortunate flat tire today I realized I was going to have to change out my 45K G/Y Wrangler Silent Armors. Currently I have 245/65/R17. I was wondering if I could (or anyone has) fit 255/65/R17s on without tire rubbing an so forth.

I have Bilstein shocks/struts that raise it a little, along with screw in spacers that added about 1/4".

Thanks!
