Snow tire size

Running a stock 2012 rubi and looking to get snow tires, blizzard dm-v1.
Stock tire size 255/75/17
Looking at 285/70/17

After reading the huge sticky thread on the largest tire a stock jeep will accommodate, it seems this size requires spacers. But since this is a snow tire,it's not for off road and so not really at risk for heavy rubbing.

The reason for going wide (11 in) is better traction. Would spacers still be advised?
