maybe a mud tire this time?

hey guys haven't been on in a while but i have a question.

I've got a 96 dakota 2wd stock height.

Ive been running 255/60/15 regular old street tires. And the time is getting close for another set. But i was thinking changing the look and maybe getting a mud tire.

Now as silly as it may sound, it will pretty much be just for looks. the most off-road it sees is when I take the four wheeler out. Even then it's usually only about 1/8th mile of gravel/sandy/dirt road. My current tires handle it just fine. Heck, even my little civic could manage that stretch.

I had 235/75/15 AT's before. (might have been 70's but i'm pretty sure they were 75's) they rubbed on the frame a tiny bit at full turn but overall fit pretty good. I had those AT's on stock rims though. and my current wheels are offset out a good bit. i've had these wheels for about 6 years. the company isnt around anymore. i think ultra bought them out. lol

So, to the point. I've thought about a 235/75/15 mud tire on my current wheels. but I'm not sure about fitment with these deep rims. What do you guys think?

the wheels are 15x8 with i think a -19 offset they were made by sport metal.

I have 235/75/15 with a 15x8 with 4" backspace, stock 2wd v6 and they rub pretty bad but a 3" lift in the front will fix that. So if you want to keep it stock then you might want to go a little smaller than that.
