Well that rim is going to stick out 2 inches further than stock because it has 1.5" more back space and 1" wider. So with the 235/75 you should be fine but with the 30" tire you might rub when youre turning but it shouldnt be bad.

Agreed. 30s would need a little fender trimming I think.

How to Measure Wheel BackSpace




The easiest way to measure backspace is to lay the wheel face down onto the ground so the backside of the wheel is facing up. Take a straight edge and lay it diagonally across the inboard flange of the wheel. Take a tape measure and measure the distance from where the straight edge contacts the inboard flange to the hub mounting pad of the wheel. This measurement is backspace. The above photo shows three wheels with 2",3", & 4" backspace.
