Stock Replacement Tires - BFG All Terrains?

Need to replace the stock tires on my 2007 WK v6. I've always used BFG All terrains on my suvs and trucks but not sure what size would be suitable for my WK. I have a warranty on my WK that says I can't go two sizes bigger than stock so I'd like to keep close to stock. If there isn't a BFG that would meet this criteria I am considering either Firestone Destination AT or Kumho Road Venture AT.

Thoughts?

What does 2 sizes bigger than stock mean?

+2 application as in 17"-19" rims or 2" bigger tires??? I'd ask them to define that more clearly and in writing.

I have these on my Jeep during the winter. They even work when lowered with the RoadMagnet ver. 2 springs!

Back in the day when she was stock.

LT 265/65/17's BFG AT/KO's

At full steering lock they will have a very very slight rub on the inner plastic liner and you WILL have to cut the bolt!

Look on tire rack. The firestone a/t's are VERY highly rated

With how common they are anymore I think that issue is non existent.

You seem to be the only person who feels that way about the A/T's, they get awesome reviews, many many guys are running them on here, and TONS more out in the real world, I see them on everything. And not once have I seen an issue with exploding tires.....
