Upper ball joint nut?

OK...New here. Just picked up a low mile 10 Limited for the wife and she loves the look of the 2" Terraflex spacer lift. I am looking at possible tires and was planning on getting her a set of 255 70 r17 because they supposedly do not rub. What I am seeing however is the upper A arm ball joint nut sticks down inside my 1" space more than I am comfortable with and I can see a genearl need for more back spacing.

Before I buy tires...I want to research this a bit more. Can anyone shed any light as to how big of an issue this might become?

What is the minimal back spacing required for 265 70 r 17?

Would it be safer to just get new rims with the necessary back spacing?

Thanks for the help.
