09 stock rims w Duratrac 285-70R rubs 3" lift rubs!

Hi all ..FYI.. I ordered 1 LT 285 70 R 17 GY duratrac tire and had it fitted on my 09 stock rim to test fit . My jeep has a 3" BDS suspension lift.
I plan on ordering the other 4 .They look good . However..... When
I turned the wheel all the way to one side it does rub the brake line .
Even if i bent the bracket . There just is not enough room between the shock and brake line. I felt it would be to close to take a chance . I plan on
using a wheel spacer to correct that problem . UNLESS there are other options ? ..besides custom rims. Also fyi .. this tire fits good on the spare tire carrier.

Spacers!!! I've got 4 on order for my trail grapplers!! They are 33s and I have a 3in lift as well. Just comparing to stock I could tell already they would rub!! But it'll look great once it all comes together. I got a 1.5 wheel spacer

I second the spacers. Spidertrax spacers will fix that. You can install them your self and get a full set for $199.

Your going to love the tires. I tried mine out this past weekend in Selma and found some good mud that came up to the top of the tires. I pulled into it and stopped. After sitting for a minute I barely touched the gas and it pulled me right out with no spin or loss of traction. I did this in several places with the same result. It put a huge smile on my face because I had traction everywhere and didn't have to go through areas to fast out of fear of getting stuck. There were a few Jeeps there last weekend with ATs on (albeit they may have been old) and they were flying through the deep parts to make sure they got out.

The grapplers make it so you can also keep the mud spray down and under control as much as you desire. They are great, you're going to love them!
