Have you considered rolling the fenders? That would help a lot depending on how wide your tires are.

you need the hubcentric spacers...they have a ring for the hub then another for the rim...the spacers i have are 38mm and they have the hubcentric...as far as falling off theres zero issues...but they do rub...since intalling them ive had to roll my fenders....which took me about 30 mins per wheel... but they still rub a bit when i hit a major bump...i think if you went with a 35mm or less there wouldnt be any rubbing...fyi..im running 225/45R17 tires...that only rub a little bit

where did you find the hub centric spacers? i know i need some for my spacers too. the hub/spindle has the centric ring, but my spacers i bought didn't have any rings in the center. it is completely flat. so if i used hubcentric rings on the hub to spacer, it fits fine. but i cant use them on the spacer to wheel.
