The 235/70-15 is approx. .6 inches (1/2"+) taller than the 225/70-15 you currently have.
27.40 VS 27.95
With out knowing what type of vehicle you have, other that some type of light truck/sport utility, it is hard to tell you if that will have an adverse effect. Many vehicle functions are related to the overall diameter of the tire.
And some computerized engine calculations (fuel to air mixture rates, etc., etc..)
You generally want to stay within 2-3%(+/-)of the original equipment tire diameter.
Bill's expirience with the Michelins is very accurate. Based on your description of requirements you would be very well served by the Mich. LTX M/S.
