With the wheels you want you'll be restricted to about a 29" tall tire because of the offset. A 31 will fit with occasional rubbing on the stock wheels with a 2.5" lift.

it shows the overall height and width of the tire, play around with the sizes till those numbers match what you want.

a 30x9.5 should measure about 29.7 tall and 9.5 wide, 31 will be about 30.7

This is the tire calculator I like to use. It had both metric and standard tire sizes and also tells you the difference in your speedometer.

The link I posted tells you the speedometer difference. Input 235/70/15 and 235/80/15. It says the speedometer will be off by 6.5" (reads 60 mph, actually travelling 63.9)

Going from stock wheels to 4" backspacing will make them stick out 2" further each side.

As for if they will fit well on your truck, read more threads, see what others have done. You need to do more research.
