if your rims are the same as my 02 explorer sport i went with 265/70/16 and they only rubbed when turned all the way. then they only rubbed a little bit. the tire height measures 32" mounted on the rim. i added TT and shackles and no problems. is it 2wd or 4x4 ? i ask because my wifes 01 sport is 2wd and it has 235's on it. mine is 4x4 and came with 255's on it.

Its a 2wd and it came with 235's, the wheels i want to get are 16×7 black rock rims( https://m.summitracing.com/parts/brw-997671240 ) & idk if i can mount them on some 245/70/r16

i believe those rims would work. because ur tire is going to be more centered on the hub than mine are. u figrue the offset i have keeps more of the tire in the wheel well. i have about the same size tire ur talking about getting so i believe they would work. mine only rubbed all the way to the lock and it was minor. these pictures were with no lift at all.
