Default Lil'Bigger Tires

1999 S15 Jimmy 4dr 4x4.
My last 3 sets of tires for one Blazer or the other has been GoodYear Wrangler Radial in 235-75 15. Last time i bought a set they were about $67 cheap. I like these tires, the pattern is great for snow but not noisey and the price is right but they aren't quite big enuff. Seems like the next size up in a 15" are the LT.
I don't want to modify the suspension but I do want to fill up the wheel well a little more without an aggressive, noisey tread pattern.
What size tires are bigger than 235-75 15 and will work on my stock 1999 GMC Jimmy 15 inch wheels?

Thanks For Your Time

30x9.5x15 is the biggest you can go at stock height. You can get 31x10.5x15 if u lift it a little

A 255/70 15 will also fit without lifting. Its around a 30x10" tire. I ran them on my Blazer at stock height and didn't rub at all. Those should be available in a "P" as well as a "LT" tire.
