help with wheels

So the attached picture are the wheels I recently bought for my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee limited.

They are 17x8 5x5bolt pattern 4.5 backspacing and no offset.

On the site they said they fit the vehicle. But really they rub the brake calipers in the front. So i put on 1.75inch wheel spacers. Now when I turn the wheel all the way they rub the wheel well.

I'd like to find rims that are 17x8 that will fit correctly without needing any modifications like spacers to the vehicle. Can anyone help me?

I also just put on a Rocky Road 2.25" suspension lift. So I'd like to also get new tires that are 265/70R17...Right now I have 245/65R17.

What wheels is everyone else riding on? Post pics and if you needed spacers or other mods.

Re: help with wheels

No response?
I'm wondering the same thing.
Would like to short list some wheel options that do not require spacers and will accommodate that size of tire.
Figure anything out?
