New user...need advice on tires

Hi everyone my name is Ryne and I'm new to the forum. I've read a lot of the threads and found them to be very helpful. I have a 2010 jeep compass sport 4x4 cvt. Looking for a tire with a more aggressive tread. Does anyone know what size tire I can fit without rubbing on the factory 17 inch wheel? And also what's a good looking tire?

225/65/17 will fit on a 17" stock wheel no problem, when you say aggressive looking are you looking on road performance or something more offroad, like an all terrain tire?

Thanks for the reply. Looking for something to make my jeep look more off road capable. Leaning towards and off road tore like an all terrain. I've done a little searching and about the only thing I found was the yokohoma geolander. Any opinions on this tire?

I had set on a Grand Cherokee a while back. Sold it with them on it.
Ride was good and smoother than previous tire but they are a heavy tire as well. Rolling resistance was rated very low but it didn't bother the GC.
