Tire change

Hey all,
I was thinking of changing my tires from (Factory Orig) 30.5x9.5x15 to 245x75x15. Can I do it? What would be the impact?
Any other recommendation?

will the 31x10.50R15 fit on my rims that currently have 30x9.50R15LT ?

245" tires are huge must people stay around 35's haha

if you change the size of your tires its going to change what your spedo says so youll need a new gear for that and with the smaller tires im sure youll get better gas meilage i think i dont know to much bout tires tho sory im not really much help

Yes, you guessed it; I know nothing about tire sizes.
So will the 10.5 fit on my rims that currently have 9.50? What’s the difference between a 30 and 245 tire?
