Tires before lift?

I have a 2007 WK with the 5.7. Planning on putting a 2" budget lift on it this winter, have the stuff just have not had time to get to it. Anyway, taking a trip in a week and noticed my tires are starting to crack in the treads and really don't want to spend a week 6+ hours from home on tires that may possibly be factory. (Goodyear Fortera). I am doubtful these are the original tires at 70000 miles, but to the meat of the question.

These are 245/65/17. What size tire can I go up to stock, but not look completely out of place when I do the lift? I do have 1 1/2" spacers for the wheels.

Re: Tires before lift?

What did you go with? I'm in the process of looking into a bigger tire to fill the wheel well and not have to cut or have rubbing . I have a 07 wk limited with 4.7L . I'm also interested in wheel spacers but not sure how far the wheel will stick out with 1.5 spacer. I just want a more aggressive stance.. Any info or pics would help

I'll get some pics with stock tires. Haven't done anything with tires yet, ended up buying a house, but do have the spacers on. It does have a wider stance and looks nice.
