Default tire rub...wheel offsets?

the problem im having is: moved links & shocks to the outside, (to clear banebots 395's) now my proline & 2.2 rovers are rubbing i tried my buddies readcat beadlocks & rover 2.2's, not as much rub but still cant go to full lock. i'm looking for a wheel with less offset as 8 shooters. -offset. any ideas fellas?

I cut the inner bead off the stock wheels ... they are almost flush with the mounting surface now. I use silicone to glue my tires now so I can still swap and re-use later. Guess I just like the stock wheels.

I narrowed the wheel from the inside ... removed the entired inner bead (part the tire fits into) and re-glued the outer lip back on ... I have about 1/8" offset now and a narrower wheel.
