another tire question

265 75 R16 is stock tire on the NAS Defender 90s. I love the look and ride.

For a 87 D110, I want to mount the same on boost alloys, with stock suspension. The rear brakes still drum, so I will mount 30 mil spacers. Will this present any rub or other issues?

While I know many opinions will vary, is there a compelling issue to go with the stock size, which I believe is 235 85 R16.

thank you.

I personally just think the 235's look right on a 110.

My vote is for 33/12.5-15 mud grip real man tires. Not something that will fit on a Prius.
