Wheel spacers

I have a 2.5" lift for my 2013 4 door Rubicon. I will have flat fenders. I want 285-75-17 tires. What is the least amount of wheel spacer I need for stock rims? 1", 1.25"? Or do I need 1.5"? Thanks.

1.25" spacers will work fine.
1.5" spacers are most common.

best balance of scrub to clearance considerations on OEM wheel widths is:
1.25 for 33 and down.
1.5 for 33.2 and up.

1.5 IS the most common but mainly because that matches the most common tire mod (35s) with AEM wheel BS to the OEM BS so requires no further thought! But smaller diameter tires factor in a lot. A scrub too wide wears bearings, steering ends and ball joint needlessly...
