Need more tire clearence!

SO i didn't browse jeep forum enough before i bought my IRO 3" lift. I went by their website and got the 265/75/R16 and the DT8000's. The 32's do fit but they are a little too close for comfort for me. So I'm thinking trim fenders(really not too crazy about this and would want fender flares but lots of $$ there) or some spacers for a little more lift. The only spacer that i have found under 1" is a 3/4" leveling kit from KOR, but the front and rear is only on their old website. SO what do you guys think? Small spacers a better option or fender trimming?

Are you just worried about them rubbing on the shocks and control arms?

Stock rims correct? they have to much Backspacing thats why they rub so buy a pair of those and your good no need for new rims.

How do you like the duratracs?

I think he's rubbing on the fenders not the shocks. In that case I would go ahead and trim. If you mess up then you have a reason to buy the flares or a front bumper!

Yeah i already have a set of those exact same wheel spacers on the way. I just need a little more extra room for the tires.

Are they actually hitting the fenders?
If they don't, I wouldn't bother trimming yet

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.
