Default Biggest Tyres on stock 98 sammy?

Hey guys, Im new to the forum but just got myself a 98 coil sprung samurai (sj80). Goes great off road stock standard but i do alot of beach driving so I have got myself a set of speedy rat 15x8 rims and wondering what size tyre I will be able to fit on them with out lift?
My friend can get me some 265/70R15's which are 30 x 10.5 for a real good price but just wondering if they will fit?
I also have a friend who can make me some wheel spacers and or coil spring spacers if i need them.
What do you all reccommend?
Cheers, Kent

they will fit, they may scrub a little bit when turning or out in the bush, but i have always run 30's on my sierra with no lift. I found the steering better with my sierra and mu vitara....

If you drive a lot in the sand, you don't need a tall tire, you need a fat tire.

Run them at 10-12 psi and you will love it!
The larger the footprint (without rolling the tire off the bead) will give you a cleaner ride on the sand (no digging).
