Default can you put a 265 70 r17 tire on a jeep grand cherokee wheel rated for 245 70 r17

Can you put 265 70 r17 tires on a 2007 jeep grand cherokee wheel currently with 245 70 r17? If so, will they rub? How will this affect the speedometer?

Measure and see if you can get away with it. It will probably rub without a lift or cutting the fenders for clearance

This is my wife’s Jeep, and she is short. Do you think I can get away with a 2” lift? Or do you think I will have to go 3”? Also, should I consider spacers for a wider stance & better inner wheel clearance at the same time?
