Default will these rub?

Ok so i have a stock touring suspension on my 1998 blazer right now and i am not looking to lift it at this point. I think i am going to buy the cragar soft 8's 15"x8", 5"x4.5" bolt circle, 4" backspacing. The tire size i will be looking at is 235/75/r15 to fit the rim. I don't think this set up will rub or anything but if anybody has encountered problems i would like to know before i buy them.
Thank you for you imput.

I'm not sure what you mean by touring suspension but 235/75/15 on soft 8s from my understanding might need just a little tbar tweak on some blazers

touring is the non zr2 suspension so it doesn't have any lift or anything. i'm trying to stay away from a t-bar crank cause i don't want extra stress on the joints and stuff. all i'm really looking for is going offroading on some trails and stuff but this truck is mostly going to be my daily driver. in the future i might look into a lift kit but for now i just want to keep it as stock as i can so i can maintain my mpg.

ok so i went to a local tire and wheel shop and the guy there said that he has some unique 297 wheels in stock that are actually cheaper than the cragars so looking online it looks like they have it in the size 15x8, 5-4.5, +6mm offset, 4 3/4 BS. my question is will the higher back spacing make it so the 235's won't rub?

The bolt pattern is 5x4.75 by the way. Do you have a 4WD or a 2WD?

Sorry i meant to include that in my first post. it's a four wheel drive so the backspacing is going to cause it to stick out farther.

i know there are people with this setup but all the ones i have seen had to lift their car because of rubbing and i don't want to do that just yet. if i have to then i will probably wait till next summer and go for a little bit bigger of a tire.

I wish I had a little more insight but i kept stock rims and went with 30/9.50's and i dont rub but that is stock bs.
