Help with rubicon wheels on an XK

I want to put some rubicon wheels on my XK. I'm wondering about the best way to approach this. I heard I will need wheel spacers and a lift. I'm hoping a 2" lift is enough as I don't want to go much higher than that. My main concern is the spacers. I would like to avoid any trimming to fit the 255-75/17. So my question is, what's the ideal spacer size? I need to go enough so that the rim clears the caliper, but not so much to cause interference with the fenders. Any input is Appreciated

I have 255/75/17 with a 2.25" RR lift and 1.5" spacers and I still had to trim, If you do not want to trim stay stock or close to it.

I have 255.75.17, I have 1.25 inch wheel spacers, and a 2 inch daystar lift. If you want to run those tires you will have to modify the pinch weld and inner fender. They look damn good once they are on though
