Max tire size

I have a 2012 Call of Duty that is completely stock from the factory.
What is the max size tire that I can put on the rims that came with it?
It currently has BF Goodrich Mud Terrains LT 255 / 75 R17's installed.
I would also like a tire that does not have a ton of drone while driving down the freeway...suggestions?
Thanks

You can mount any size tire that fits a 17" rim.

Some build info here:

Need more info. Any lift? Any trimming? Any wheel spacers to go with those stock wheels?

The max tire size you can run without having to make modifications or adding wheel spacers (not recommended) is 285/70R-17. Tire size 295/70R-17 may work as well depending on the tire model. Tires are just like shoes. Some brands run larger while others run smaller, even in the same size.

So which is it? 285/70/17 or 295/70/17?
And why are wheel spacers not recommended?

The factory wheels (17x7.5 +45) mounted with 285/70R-17 tires should not rub. The factory wheels with 295/70R-17 tires however is semi aggressive and may rub (stress may) towards the inside depending on the tire model. Just like shoes, not all tire brands run the same size which is something to consider when pushing maximum fitments.

As far as spacers go, we feel proper fitting wheels are the better alternative to spacers. Spacers add a "link in the chain" so to speak that could potentially fail.

Will it not rub off-roading/crawling?

You may occasionally have some tire rub while articulating off-road.
