30's are as big as you can go with stock height. I'm running 30x9.5 R15's right now and they're as close as you want to cut it with stock height.
If you're looking to go bigger (like 31's or 32's) you'd need to look at a 2" body lift.

30x9.5 will work but as Mike said you'll have to trim. I'd recommend finding some rims with stock backspacing.

I don't know much about rims and backspacing..but out of curiosity is it because of those specific rims that he would have to buy spacers? Because I'm running 30x9.5 on my stock rims without any trimming or rubbing..?
