How big of a tire can i go before i start to scrub or need a lift. It is on a 2008 GMC Canyon 2WD with the factory 15 inch wheels.

I went 235/70/15 and it was fine but I think it was at full lock going left would rub slightly but right wouldn't do a thing lol and that's with a 2in lift. You might be able to pull 30s without any elevation. Someone more verse will chime in.

Off road. Even though it is a 2wd I still go off the beaten path...lol I just want something with attitude and grip on a bigger tire. I know what i want but just need to know the max size i can go before lifting is required.

30x9.5r15 fit perfect. Little rub a full lock but not a trouble. Depend on wheel backspace

One more question, I'm still kind of a newbie to tire sizes and fitments. I have a set of 16X7.5 inch wheels. If i mounted those on my truck, what would be the max without a lift. I cant find any info on the web.

Depends on the tire size and backspace of the wheels
