Default Tire Help

Hey guys new to the the site. I have a 2003 Dodge Ram 1500 with some kind of 2-3 lift. When I bought the truck it came with BF Goodrich All Terrain T/A KO LT315/70R-17/D2 121R which were bold. So I ordered the Kumho Road Venture MT KL71 LT315/70R17D2 121Q B thinking they would fit fine also. Apparently not they are about 2" wider than the BF and they sit agaisnt the control arm. Is there away to get spacers to push them out? If so would it look funny? Are they expensive? and where do I get the from? If its not possible what size of tire can I order thats still almost the same height just not as wide? Looking for a MT.
Thanks For Your Time

If you have small rubbing issues you can correct it with a 1/4" spacer. Most guys on here would not do a spacer but it will work. I would recommend going the proper route and get yourself some aftermarket rims. The rims should have a negative offset. This acts like a spacer and it brings the tires out away from the truck. Having some aftermarket rims with negative offset really changes the whole look of the truck.

When you have a negative offset it makes the truck look so much more aggressive since your tires stick out past the wheel wells. Also with rims you really make the truck look custom and like your own. Once I put rims on my truck it changed the whole look of the truck.

Stick with a negative offset between -10 and -20mm. I have a -18mm offset on my rims and it makes the tires stick out 2.5" away from the body. I had to get some fender flares put on my truck since the tires would cover the truck in dirt/mud/water w.e was on the road haha.

If you already have rims then go with a small spacer.

Well the wheels sit right agaisnt the control arm when the wheels are facing straight so 1/4 spacer probally wouldnt work than right? I wasnt planning on ordering rims cause I was going to sell the truck but it is an option. How do you go about ordering rims with negative offset? And any idea where a good cheap place to buy them? Thanks
