Longer Wheel Studds on 83 CJ5

I have put M/T wheels on the rebuild 83 CJ5 and ran into a problem.
The brake caliper is was rubbing the wheel.
I put a ľ ď wheel spacer on all wheels to match and now No rubbing!
Problem, now one of the wheels wonít allow the lugs to tighten down. Has anyone else run into something similar?
It was the front left that was rubbing but now the front right lugs wonít cinch down more than arm strength without shredding the lug nut threads.
Anyway, please let me know if the only fix is longer Studs.
Also, please let me know, do I have to remove the locking hub end to get the rotor off to replace the studs? Thatís what itís looking like to me.
Thanks Jeepers.

Spydertrax wheel spacers is the better way to increase your offset. They bolt to your studs and provide new studs to bolt your wheels to.

It sounds like the wheels aren't designed for your jeep if they hit the calipers. However, i guess spacers will work if they make it clear.

Thanks for the reply. I think I'm going with the bolt on spider spacers.
