By choosing a bigger rim and tyre size you will increase your fuel costs. It takes do much more effort to get your vehicle moving with bigger diameter wheels. Also more breaking effort is required :)

When I purchased my x240 ( second hand) it has 245/75/16 on it and they fit just right ( it also has a 2” lift ) , today I fitted a set of 31/10.5/15 and they also fit fine, only had a tiny bit of scubing on full lock.
