Default Wheel Spacers to make Jeep Alloys fit an '88?

I bought five 15" Jeep alloys off a 1997 Wrangler with 30x9.5R15 BFG mudders on them. They fit on the back just fine, but I've machined out the center hole on the fronts for the hub and run into another problem; my tie rod end rubs on the inside of the wheel. How thick of a spacer should I put in to fix this problem, and should I do the back ones as well or does it not matter? It looks like it will take quite a bit to kick them out far enough.
