Bruce, what backspacing are the wheels. I may be wrong, but I think the front tires will be too small for the wheels. Regardless of backspacing I think an 8.5" wheel up front will be too wide. It's gonna rub somewhere.(lip, frame, or inner fender) I run a 245/60/15 on a 15X8 with 4" backspacing on the rear. I get a little tire rub on the outer lip. A 4.5" B.S. would work perfect. With an 8.5" you might be ok with the 235 if the backspacing is about 4.75" to 5". Hope my babbling helps.
