It'll be listed on the sticker located at the back of the front driver door. Also will be listed in the RPO code list (after decoding) on the inside of the glove box door.

97s were probably rocking the 235/70/15s. The premium ride option or whatever the RPO listing is gave the 235/75s. Tire size won't be as much of a factor for your MPGs as the tread pattern will. If you go with a full street Pirelli, you'll get much better mileage in the same size as a BFG AT.

Cooper Zeon LTZs are a good balance of low rolling resistance and all-terrain ability.
