Tires rubbing!

I purchased a set 0r Bighorn 2.0 in the size of 26x11x14 in the rear thinking they would be about the same height as the stockers. WRONG, they are MUCH bigger by almost 2 inches! So now everytime I go over a large bump the rear tires rub on the inner fender. What is everybody doing? I know alot of you are running even bigger tires.

Is it the height or the width that is causing the rubbing?
Wheel spacers or a lift may be your solution.

I am wondering if my rear tires have the wrong offset? They do stick out about an inch now with th ss312 rims. Its rubbing on the front outside edge of the fender well when the shocks compress.

I don't know why they are rubbing, I remember you asked me how mine fit and I have no rubbing issues. I have the 27" XTR's on the rear on the SS212 14x8" wheels. Can only think that the 27" Bighorns are bigger than the 27" XTR's and maybe they are a little more square if you know what I mean across the top of the tire. Here is the application chart from ITP:
