Tires Rubbing

I have a 99 XJ with a 2.5" lift. I currently have 33x10.5 BFG ATs on it (I got a very good deal on them and could not turn them down).

They actually fit just driving on the road and never bottom out. But if I flex them at all they get stuffed completely into the wheel well- so much so that I do not think that just trimming the fenders would remedy the problem.

So I am wondering if putting 1.5" wheel spacers on along with trimming the fenders would make them fit. The other option is to just sell the things and put 31s back on them.

I will trade you my stockers and you will never have a problem with rubbing. Honesty though trimming and more lift are your 2 choices. What off set are your wheels?

The more back spacing you run will push the tire into the fender/flare more. Running stock back spacing is your best option until you cut but it wil llimit your turning radius.
