I know 225/75 15 will fit for sure, I've heard 235/75R15 might rub slightly at full wheel lock

I ran 235/75r15's on both of my zjs, they weren't even close to rubbing.

30x9.5xr15 is the biggest you can go with no lift.

On stock wheels 235/75-15 will rub the sway bar slightly on full lock. Aftermarket wheels with a better off set will have no issues rubbing.

I have 235/75-r15s on my stock height GC and do not rub at all.

No they won't, there is more clearance than that.

Changing the size will mess with the speedometer, not really that much, so I wouldn't worry too much about it

I was running 235/75s on stock canyons, as others have said there's plenty of room.

sway bar must be bent then. On mine they rubbed at full lock. Bigger tires on Cragars and no issues now.

For those who had rub issues, did you ever measure to make sure sway bar was centered? how were your bushings? it might have shifted to cause rubbing, or shifted so it didnt rub...

I run 235's on 15in on stock canyons and really dont even consider it a very big tire at all. No rubbing, hell ive got plenty of room to spare.
