HELP wheel spacers or aftermarket rims?

I just had installed on my 09 teryx 2 28x12x12 rear and 2 28x10x12 fronts and i am having rubbing issues.

i installed a Extreme lift kit to prevent any tire rubbing issues prior to getting the mudzilla tires.

My problem now is that the rears are rubbing on my shock reservor and the fronts are rubbing on the stearing joint...??

question is do i spend the money on aftermarket rims or keep my stock rims and just do spacers?

spacers seem to be about $50 a piece and would need 4 the 1" (would be ok with .5" but dont think they make those)

thoughts??

The smallest spacers Ive seen are 1.5 and I dont know how much offset aftermarket rims will give you but Im sure you would get at least .5 to 1 inch. With that being said you cn get alot of good looking aftermarket wheels for about 300 shipped, so for about 100 bucks more than spacers you can get new rims for the added width, and improve the looks as well.

Where are they rubbing. If you turn the shock around, does the issue go away? I have heard that solves the issue with some lifts and bigger tires.
How big a tire?

it rubs on the rear shock reservors, cant even drive it like it is...

is it ok if i reverse the shocks around so the reservors are facing the inside of the machine vs. the outside?

and in the front the tire is always rubbing the steering coupler...

i was looking at 1" wheel spacers from super atv products 150 for all 4?

but would prefer to stay away from spacers and keep the machine as narrow as possible..
