Hi all, I know you are experts and I am but a lowly noob. I have a 2002 Nissan Pathfinder LE and need to replace the tires. What are the biggest size tires that I can put on it without significant rubbing and without having to have it lifted?

31" just a guess but you may need some wheel spacers... I got all 4 spacers for $100 on eBay... 6x5.5 lug pattern and I got mine in 2"

You should be able to fit 31's.  Might have slight rubbing depending on the condition of your suspension.  You should not need spacers for anything 31" or less, but you might depending on, again, the condition of your suspension and if the tires rub the inner fender lining.

I ran 245/75/16 without a lift and had very saggy rear springs. Minimal rubbing.

Hey everyone, thank you so much for your input! I just realized I didn't mention the size of the tires that are on there now. They are the same as the ones that originally came with the vehicle when it was purchased new from the dealership in 2002. I don't know what all of the numbers mean but they are: R601 245/65R17 111H XL.

Those are the size that mine came stock with as well.  If you throw that number into a site like https://tiresize.com...ire-conversion/ you will find that your stock tire is 29.5x9.6R17, roughly 30x9.50R17.
