225 vs 235. New tires
I have been running 225/75/15 tires since i got the jheep and recently picked up 235/75/15 I know they are only an inch bigger but what are you guys getting for gas mileage and anything different with the slightly bigger tires?
I currently run 235/75/15 They felt like they made a difference around the bends. They seemed to control the Jeep a little better. Not sure about mileage loss but your speedo will be about 5mph or so off.

The 235/75X15 tire is only 15 mm taller which is about .6". That's about a 2 % difference, which is how much lower your speedo will be. It shouldn't affect your mpg enough to notice after you correct for your odometer being 2% lower also.

I put on 235/75/15 ATs 3 years ago when i needed new tires getting rid of my 225s. I noticed no difference in fuel economy also, I think the speedometer reads fast from the factory because now with the bigger tires my speedometer is dead on with my gps.
dude just go for the 245s. I just got them about 2 months ago from the original 225, and not only do they look awesome and give the ZJ a more agressive look, but I experience no rubbing at all.
