235 75 15's will rub on the pinch weld and the front bumper tube.

I really want to say that you can only go to 215/75/15 with no rubbing (on stock wheels), but you may be able to get 225/70 or 75's to fit.

and 235's typically mess up the gearing so 5th is useless, but since you have the lower 5th gear it may be ok.
