Goodyear Duratrac

I recently put a set of Goodyear Wrangler Duratrac 275/70 R18 tires on my stock 18" wheels! They look awesome the front is rubbing on the sway bsr, so Im looking for a recommendation to what size spacer should I use? Also when setting the cruise control at 70mph it would gradually decrease speed to about 65mph then the rpm would kick up to 3g to bring the speed back to 70, this would happen repeatedly as I drove the eway.
Is there a programmer or chip that would fix this?

1.5" - You need 1.5" to clear the rear lugs yet you want the thinnest you can get by with so that leaves 1.5"

Make sure they are USA made, and hub centric. Spidertrax, and synergy make good ones. There are others that many have used but hub centric is the most important.

Might also try local off road shop. I actually got better pricing through them then online.

I've heard good things about the Superchips Flashpaq for additional power. It's one of the first thing I'm going to do to my JKU this summer. (Winch and bumper might win out just because I don't like being stuck.)
