Default 235x75x15 rub?

I can't get the OEM size (225x70x15) BFG Long Trails for at least six weeks. Will there be rubbing or any other side effects from using 235x75x15's on a totally stock 2008 XL 4x2 standard cab? I know I'll have to update the tire size with my tuner.

Thanks

as far as air goes, I put enough for the tire to run flat across and have around 2" of laterial tread on the ground. I dont care about fuel mileage, I would rather my tires wear even. For my 32's and 33's I ran it was 28 in the front 25 in the rear. For my 235's its 26 up front 24 in the rear
