Default Offset rims

I recently bought a set of Cragar 15x9.5 rims for my 2000 4x4 4dr blazer. I beleive that they have a 2" offset, and ive heard stories about them rubbing on the top of the fender well when going over bumps. Im putting 29.5" 235/75 BFG All Terrains on them, and i was wondering if there was a way that i could get some more ground clearance without a body or suspension lift. Possibly cranking the torsion bars up? anyone have any ideas?

In my expeirience the rub comes from the back of the fender, not the top. Take a look at your front fenders, specifically the back. See how they curve? the inside of the fender is further back then the outside sheet metal. The rub comes from wheels with less backspacing, it pushes the tires out of the wheel well and into the rear of the fender. Short of a lift, correct backspacing, smaller tires, you just live with it.

not to mention that the 235/75/15 bfg all terrains are definitely not 29.5" tall... they are more like 28"
