the tire you have is about a 31" tire then. a 30" tire will fit and have no rubbing issues a 31" will rub a little on hard turns. pretty much that tire is just a tad too big. when i got my wrangler i put 31" bfg on it did the same thing on my links too. it really is not that big of an issue unless you frequently make hard right turns. you can either live with it or get space lift kit (cost about $200) or a 1" body lift. i am not really a fan of body lifts, so i put a 2" spring spacer lift on mine (also called a budget boost).

ooh, sorry i had a dyslexia moment. a 235 tire is only about 29" not 31." but the problem still may be that the tire is too wide. post some pics of the suspension with the jeep turned hard right. it may help to see it

clarify "stabilizer link"...if the drivers "rim" is rubbing on something then the tires size shouldnt matter becaues the rim is the problem due to having to much back spacing....if by rim you mean tire then also clarify what it is rubbing on.....is it a suspension link? that should only rub on a hard left hand turn on the drivers side and vice versa on the passenger(unless you have a mail jeep or are in england)....post pics or vids and we can help
