Anyone running Cooper Discovery M+S?

The reason I ask is I have a set sitting in my garage with about 9,000 miles on them that I used as winter tires on my GMC Sierra. They are a killer winter tire and I was thinking they might get me by until I have the funds for a set of the new Goodyear MTR's with kevlar.

They are 265x70R17'w so I am guessing I will have a some rubbing with just the 2" spacer lift and the stock wheels. Overall diameter is 31.65".

Rubbing should be minor but you will need a set of wheel spacers because the ball joint bolt will hit the tread especially on a M+S with a wider sholder.

Would 1.25" - 1.5" spacers get me the clearance that I need?
