2011 FX4 max rim/tire diameter (stock suspension)

soooo ive searched and searched and cant seem to find what im looking for. Most of the threads I come up with are pre 2008 ride heights.

What is the max wheel/tire diameter I can fit without rubbing with the stock FX4 off-road suspension (no t-bar crank either)

I want to stick with a 16inch wheel. I have a 2011.

nope...it's just not completely covered in dust like the rest...standard 08 fx4 dsg on top with black around the bottom



And to the OP ...there is enough clearance that I don't have any rubbing

Awesome thanks guys....so is there any rubbing issues with that size? I mean with suspension flex as well.

I guess ill crank the T-bar a bit for peace of mind and to level it out a bit

oh...also what offset should I look for with aftermarket rims?
