Largest Off Road Tires?

I have an 08 Forester and wanted to know what the largest off road tire I can go without mods/lifting the car. I have the stock 16 in wheels and 15 in steelies. Also, should I be considering wheel spacers?

Thanks

I have 15s on my SG - I went with 21575R15. I know you can go wider but wider is not always better offroad.

06 FXT Sparco 17in wheels with continental 225/60 R 17 all terrain tires (little bit of rubbing in the wheel wells when turning) but I think it makes for a good dd being a bigger wheel and still just as capable.
