Tires spacers

Anyway to make tires stick out a little like spacers do? I just spent 600 on 4 new 245 45 tires and I'm wanting them to stick out a little. Should I have bought bigger tires todo that?

How wide of a rim do you have? Spacers will make it stick out more and be flush

Hahah ik I was lucky I was going maybe 15 around a u turn and hitting a pot hole. I think the studs were stripped on those spacers or maybe there were some cheap off brand or just some bad ones idk. I don't trust spacers anymore.

Here's some pics with an inch and half. Not too good of pics but you can see them a little bit and how they're perfectly aligned with the fenders.
