That would be dependent on the tire size .
You also mentioned best stance.
That would depend on the owner's preference.

I guess I'm just looking for it to look like a 4x4. What is the biggest tire I can run with no modifications?

265/75/16-17 will fit a stock truck.

My bad I have 265/65 17 now. Would there be a noticeable difference between those and and the 265/75 17s?
I could be wrong but I dont think any of tire manufactures make a 265/75-17.
Are you sure you dont have 16" wheels/rims ?
If you have 17" rims/wheels you must have aftermarket rims/wheel or stock OEM 17"'s off an old Pathfinder

You are probably right.
A mud terrain will fit and will look a lot more aggressive.
That is what I used till recently.

Everything that I read says that the 05 Frontier Le trim model came with 17in wheels and 265 65 rubber

I run the stock size tires on my pro-4x. It’s a 4x4, so that’s what a 4x4 looks like. It takes quite a bit to fit bigger tires, so unless you really need the extra inch of ground clearance, I don’t think it’s worth it. Besides, it’s very capable with stock size tires.

I normally ran very close to stock on my jeeps, for that exact reason, the vehicles are very good stock so no reason to lift, other than looks.

I have had lifted vehicles but you spend so much fixing the issues the lift cause that it makes it a head ache.

I had a Cherokee with a 6" and it took control arms and control arm drops, adjustable track bars, shims for the rear axle and transfer case. What a pain and all it let me do was properly run 31s so I could go through stuff I went through stock and a little deeper water fording.

No more lifts for me. I don't do Moab or anything like that and I don't drive on the beach or through mud so stock works fine.

Shoot, my truck is two wheel drive now, that's how little I needed 4x4

Pretty sure Whilster meant 265/75r16 (32"). This is the largest size you can run without rubbing with no mod or with a typical suspension lift. The non pro4x trucks came with 265/70r16 (31"). If your truck came with 17" wheels then drop the aspect ratio down 1 (increments of 5). Or in general one increment for every inch keeps the same overall diameter. 265/70R16 = 265/65R17 = 265/60R18....
