I decided to get a round of wheel spacers for apperance and a wider wheel stance to help with a tippy blazer. The only problem is that I'm running 31x10.5 's and I'm not sure that if a 1 inch spacer is placed on the front that the tire will rub on the back of the fender. I figured this because with less backspacing the tire will have a larger range of motion therefore creating a rub. I do have a 2 inch body lift on but still seems to be close. Is there any cheep way of seeing if it will rub with a 1 inch spacer without ordering it and sending it back again?

If it has wheels or a skirt,

Re: Clearance

this wouldn't be totally accurate but you can try this to get a good idea
jack up the frount of the truck and take a frount tire off then turn the wheel all the way one direction or another then place the wheel back in place but don't slide the rim over the studs and check to see if it hits anywhere
most of your studs on the vehical are approx 1 inch long
