Usual Newbie Questions......

Hi Jeepsters....I am thinking of buying some 16" Rubicon Moabs for my 06 TJ. I'm thinking of either putting on 245/75/16 Good Year SRA's or 255/65/16 Good Year SRA's, the wheel is 16x8 with a 5" back space.

245/75/16 = 30.5/9.6/16
255/65/16 = 29.1/10.3/16

I would like the wheel to stick a little past the fender.

Am I going to have any problems with rubbing from either of these tires?
Plus, will they effect my speedometer in any way?
Is it OK to have Passenger tires on a Wrangler?

If the tire alone cant push past the fender then if I decide on another wheel, say 15x8 or 16x8 and I went with the 245/75/15or16 tire what back space should I look at for them to stick out about half - one inch past the fender? I'm guessing 4"?

Thanks for your help guys and gals.
