    You'll be fine I ran 285/70/17 duratracs in sport 17's for almost two years on spider trax spacers with zero problems. Just torque them down to specs and you'll be good

    Big tires, big lift, Lots of stuff's.
    Spacers will fix your problem. Or get after market rims. I wheel the shit out of spidertrax wheel spacers and they are fine.
