Will 305-70-16's on stock rims rub rear shock?

I got some new 305-70-16's that I want to run on my stock rims (silverblades) (2000 WJ). I would like to know if they will rub the rear shock before I have them installed. If they are gonna rub I might just sell the silverblades and get some soft 8's, or get some wheel spacers.

I ran 285's on stock rims (Timberline), and every time I turned left, the exhaust pipe would swing and rub some of the outter lugs away..

I ended up putting on some 1.25" spacers

I would say you'd need the spacers. With spacers, it should work OK.

I'll probably go spacers since I like the wheels I have. Thanks for all the input.

I got 1.25" spacers and it still rubs, but not as bad. Anyone moved there shock mounts to keep from rubbing?

I have 245/70/16's and after my BB and Rough Country shocks, my tires rub on the shock now. Its not bad but it didn't do that before the BB.
