215/55-17 Clearance

Will this tire size rub on stock suspension?

It seems plenty tires come in that size. It's the same width as stock with 3/4" more sidewall height.
I could combine this wheel/tire set with the 1.5" lift spacer kit for the ultimate dirt road setup, but I'm curious if it fits without raising the suspension so I could just swap wheels for street/dirt.

Tire Rack has 106 tires in that size.
Unfortunately no all terrain options. Only touring, performance, and winter.

Another size option is 215/60-16, with a very similar height to 215/55-17.
Yokohama Geolandar A/T G015 exists in that size, and Tire Rack lists 86 options for 16" wheels that fit.

215/60-16 is about a 1.5" increase in diameter from the stock 215/45-17. Or about .75" less clearance from the tire to the inner wheel well. One way to check would be to load up a corner to max compression by jacking up from under the tire. Then check clearance from tire to inner wheel well. Make sure to do one front and one back wheel.

Yeah, I was hoping someone else had already tried before I buy and mount tires. I'm content getting a touring tire for this use. The added sidewall height and ground clearance accomplish what I'm after, not really concerned with additional dirt traction.
