Perhaps you should go down a size in tires. 305's or 70 series tires.

downsize the front , or maybe summit racing or off road shop has a lug bolt adapter for a wider track for the front hubs?

NEVER run mixed sized tires on a 4x4.

Had 35's on my Mickey Thompson classics 15x10's and they didn't rub i just wanted to go back to a factory look I think it's got something to do with the rim offset also heard I could turn the torsion bars down some and it would slow the tires to sit further out and they would clear the frame I don't really want to do wheel spacers
