No rubbing or issues with this set-up & the spare tyre fits in the space of the original too! Still working on buying the silver Icons. Will put up for sale the 16" Liberty wheels which I initially purchased before the Icons became available.
215/75r15 was a stock size (I have a door sticker to prove it), and I've heard from very reliable guys that during the Renix years, 195/75r15 from factory did happen on occasion. 225/70r15 also happened (twas what my 96 had from the factory--have build sheet to prove that).
Not that any of that matters--just trivia. As long as my speedo/odo are accurate and don't have rubbing issues, I don't care what my XJ used to have, I'm happy with my 235/75r15's. Glad to hear you found your Icons.
