they will be fine, we ran them on a 2wd ford dually for years, the clearances are the same on the wheels. i would even try and find a 245/75 thats actualy measurements is somewhat skinny and run that for your RPM.
When I got my truck it had 235s on it. They looked good, but I wanted somehing a little taller so I went with a set of 285/75/16s. The tires look great, but they are too close together in the rear and they did not effect my RPMs on the highway like I had hoped. If I was to do it again I would go with another set of 235s because I dont like how close the rear tires are to rubbing each other. I was not able to find another size that was any taller without getting wider.

I just put 235/85/R16 Mastercraft Courser CTs on my 96 dually and have no clearance problems. My truck is a 4x4 though and you might have to check front fender clearance.
already have 235's on the front. i am more worried about the sidewall contact on the stock steel wheels.
235's would close the gap between the tires about 3/4" of an inch (unloaded, by pure size conversion).
I dont want to buy new wheels or run spacers so i am looking for real work experiences with the stock steel wheels and 2wd rigs.
i suppose i could get off my lazy a$$ and bolt the two front tires to one side of the rear axle, but thats a crapload of work!
