2017 Jeep compass mk version bigger tires

What is the max tire size people have gone without using a lift kit? And if you have any pictures that would be much appreciated!

There are other factors such as wheel width and offset, and effect on overall gear ratio to consider. Broadly speaking approx 28.5 to 29" tires work without causing problems.

I ran 225/75-16s on my '08 Patriot. The 1st generation Compass and the Patriot are sister vehicles so I imagine the fender openings and tire clearance are at least similar if not identical. I did get a slight rub under extreme conditions, but that was rare. I didn't do any off-roading, but I drove on some pretty rough roads. Those tires came off my Wrangler so they were already worn some -- probably around the 29" zoner99 mentioned.

A decent shop ought to be able to advise you. A local guy might even do a trial fit. I think Discount Tire has a function on their website that will tell you how much oversize you can go.
