Will 30" tires fit with sagging suspension?

I have a '98 XJ, and it needs new tires. It is almost entirely stock, currently with 235/75/R15 tires. The rear leafs are sagging, with nothing in the back they sit almost flat.

This is an extra vehicle for me. I don't often put weight in the back. I don't go offroad. I need to fix the suspension, but I won't have time until this summer. (probably a small lift)

I'm wondering, will 30" tires fit ok with the sagging rear end? I understand they mostly rub on the front during steering. The 235's I have now don't seem to ever rub but they are pretty bald. I don't want to get smaller tires now if I'm going to lift it a bit later...

Will 30" tires fit with sagging suspension?

My sonís XJ has 30s and was stock in the front when we bought it. Itís got after market wheels with more backspacing, but when the suspension flexed a little in the front going in my driveway they would rub in the front. The rear never rubbed, but the PO had added another XJ main leaf so the back was riding a little high.
