Default rim/ tire question

for some reason, my tire overlaps the rim a good bit. is this normal..

i had 225 70 r15 and went to a 235 75 r15... is it going to be okay or should i take them back?

pics will be uploaded tonight i dont have my cam with me atm...



Also, will the upgrade affect my mpg.. i have 3.73 gearing..


Thanks

225 and 235 there is only maybe less than a 1.5" difference

the overlap may be due to you use to have 70 and you went with 75

225/70/15 is 27.4"

235/75/15 is 28.9

Orig Tire Diameter: Inches 27.4
New Tire Diameter: Inches 28.9

Speedometer Reading: M.P.H. 55
Actual MPH: 58

habba babba. way over thinking this... changes will be minimal. less in-city mpg, better highway is what you'll probably have.
