2003 jeep liberty correct tire size

trying to find the correct tire size that should be on my 2003 jeep liberty sport.
The p.o, installed 235/70/16 on the car and it looks as if the front rubs at almost full lock. The tires are worn out anyways, so I would like to replace them with ones that do not rub. Thanks.

235/70R16's are a OEM tire size for a KJ.If they are rubbing and mounted on the stock rims your coil springs are severly worn.

Yes what he stated, mine came with 235-70s
measure middle of wheel to bottom of the flare in front, bet you're sitting an inch below new stock height

If you want confirmation .. Original tire size should be listed on the door placard.

I guess I should have checked that. I googled this before I asked anyone, but kept getting conflicting reports. The spare is a 215/75/16, so I wasnt sure.
The springs look good and it rides stiff, so I am not sure.

UPDATE.

Not the front tires rubbing. Though at first it sounded as if the noise was up front. It was actually in the back. We just bought the jeep and didnt notice it though, but when the P.O, had the exhaust replaced, they didnt put the muffler hanger bar in the mount holder so the muffler was about a 1/4" away from the driveshaft. So when you would turn the wheel tight and there was any type of articulation in the rear the muffler would hit the driveshaft and make a noise like scraping. Anyhoo, we are good to go..

The 2003 Liberty Sport I just bought, stock, no lift, has P235/75R16s. There's no fender rubbing, even in tight turns.

235-75-16s are only about a 1/2 inch overall taller than say the 235-70-16s mine came with new . So shouldn't have any issues . About the same as going to a 245-70-16

Update #2


I loosened up the exhaust and shifted it over. Noise gone

Also, Looked on the door sticker and according to the sticker, it came with 215/75/16 from the factory.
