235s on my Jeep

Ok, this is a quick one - I need new Tires Realy bad.. the stock tire size on my 93 Laredo is 215 75 15s - i'd like to get a larger tire, maybe 235 75 15s. Anyone ever step up in size like this?
Anything I should or should not do ?? my mechanic mentioned that my back drums may heatup to much because of the larger tire, and Obviously the acceleration & gas mileage would suck... Any thoughts? Thanks guys

when you go to buy new tires, ask them to test fit a 235 on so you can see, test fitting is the only for-sure way to know. Someone may tell you that there jeep didn't fit them but they may have had sagging springs or shot suspension. Who knows.

A friend of mine has the 235's on his. and from what it sounds like is it is the exact same jeep you have. it workes fine and he can get lit 400 ~~ miles or so per tank. I know that his suspension is shot but that is because he beats the crap out of it really bad. I have driven it before and I didn't notice any prolbems.

town fair tire & sears told me that the 235s would fit, w/ out rubbing - and it def looks like there is room - My one problem is cash, {college budget} My uncle is able to get me some Used tires, 100 bucks for four 235s - the only problem with used tires, asside from average wear and tear is the issue if a broken belt... is there a way of telling that the tire has had internal problems? like with one of the steel belts?
how are the BF Goodrich A/Ts ? I hear they can be noisey on the HW, anyone have em? thanks
