There is not much difference between those tires. A 235/75r15 works out to be a 28.9x9.3r15, and a 255/70r15 works out to be a 29.1x10r15.

They are very similar, but you might as well go with the larger one. It is a bit wider but the sidewall is negligably taller, so I think it would corner better on the street, and offroad, bigger is usually better.

Here is a site that make conversions from the retarded metric tire system to the standard system (the metric system isn't stupid, but the way it labels tires is). http://www.redrock4x4.com/tech/tire_calc.php?txtWidth=255&txtAspect=70&txtRim=15&submitButtonName=Calculate&method=metric
