New Moab wheels, now tires choices!?!?!

I have an 08 limited and run the 22" srt8 reps for the summer. I live in CT and need a good snow/all terrain tire. I have a set of 17" moab wheels that i need tires for. I do not want to lift the jeep because of the wheels i run in the summer. Would 245/70/17 work without a lift. I can do the pinch weld mod and cut the bolt if needed, i just want to run the largest all terrain tire possible.

What are your suggestion to max tire size?

A bunch of members run 255/70/17 without a lift but you might have to cut the bolt depending on the tire you choose or if you run spacers. If are looking for just a snow tire I know allot of folks recommend the Bridgestone Blizzak DMV1. As for an AT, I like the BFG,'s or the Nitto Terra Grapplers and allot of folks highly recommend the Firestone Destination.
