I used this calculator when I got mine. Keep in mind this will give the overall height, but you'll still need to figure out what width will work..

Re: Tire size question?

I was able to fit the 17" Moab wheels with 32's (265/70 I think) from a 2010 JKU on my 2005 WK. I had to use a 1/4" spacer to clear the UCA bolt, otherwise they are an awesome fit, with no rubbing, and they filled the tire wells out perfectly. But I did have to deflate the spare to fit in the underbody compartment, unless you mod the trailer hitch bolts.

Re: Tire size question?

The spacer was also needed for the Moabs to clear the front brakes, that was suprising.
