New Renegade owner

Hello everyone, my name Dennis and I just recently purchased a 2016 Renegade Trailhawk. I am a hunter and drive into the great north woods off road to get to my favorite hunting spots. I would like to upgrade my tires to a more aggressive all terrain, possible mud terrain type of tire. I am thinking of wider, maybe 235 nominal width on my present 17 inch wheels but not sure which aspect ratio in order to maintain simular overall diameter. I don't want to make major modifications that will affect the transmission, speedometer, shifting, etc. Can anyone help me with this decision so I don't purchase something that will rub or cause performance issues. Any info greatly appreciated.

W E L C O M E ! ! ! to the forum.

235/60r17 would be the closest tire size to stock @ 28.3" diameter (not a lot of options).

stock 215/65r17 @28.0" diameter (the tires that came with my Trailhawk (garbage for off road or snow)).
