The 3 tire sizes that the Sportage came with:
I wouldn't go more than 1" taller on the tire without taking measurements. I expect them to rub especially on turns. You'll probably need spring spacers or a mild lift kit to fit those tires that are 2" taller.
Besides the stock sizes, other sizes to consider:
Pick a different tire.
225/60/16 is smaller than what was stock and smaller than what the thread starter already has. The speedometer, which is optimistic, will be even MORE optimistic with that size.
I know that I want a little taller too and listed what I will be trying once my tires wear down.
Check your doorjam sticker or owners manual. 205 width isn't an OE size in my 2008 owners manual page 8-4.
