I've got all terrain / light truck tires on my wife's '04 3.0i 6spd in 235/60/17 size.

Works great, road manners are not noticeably different (it's an SUV after all), and the extra ground clearance makes me feel a *little* safer playing in the sand at the beach. As I've said in other posts, I'd love to take the ground clearance up a little further, but I think after 235/60/17 you will have to be very, very careful for contact to hard suspension parts - though the wheel wells have quite a bit of room. A spacer might allow for a taller but not much wider wheel / tire combo.
