Biggest tire without wheels spacers

So I've researched this for quite some time and can't find a clear answer. Everyone knows 30.5" is the safe tire size, but i'm really trying for ground clearance without wheel spacers bc I don't want the added strain on my suspension. Can anyone confirm if 255/70/17s fit stock? I've already cut my fenders and bumper cover and won't mind hammering my ball joints a little. I'm just pushing for max ground clearance. If someone advises me against it and can tell me why, I'll just run the 265/65/17s. Thanks in advance!

Hey guys. Got new tires today. 255/70/17 BFG KO2s. No lift. No spacers. Just plastic trimming and my aftermarket bumper.
Thought I'd let you guys know that they do fit for any future questions!

Can you snap us some pics to keep in here? Like side view and a look at the ball joint clearance?

Nope, he can't because the ball joint has already rubbed through the sidewall of the tire.
