Will wheel spacers rub my stock fender flares

I am running 285/70/17 Duratracs on stock wheels with a RC 2 1/2" BB. I am currently getting some rub on front passenger LCA and a mystery rub on driver rear (that's a whole different post). I got a great deal on some used spacers, but are they going to cause my tires to hit the stock fender flares? I don't want to jump out of the pan and into the fire (or trim my stock flares yet).

Are you running extended bumpstops?

If so, you'll be fine, exactly what I ran on my rig. If not you should still be fine, but Im out of direct experience.

Chill out though, they are only plastic...better than popping a tire.

I am running factory bumpstops. I just don't want to start popping the flares off. A little contact on the underside shouldn't hurt anything and won't bother me.

Surely someone out there has a similar setup and can offer some insight.
