Usually vibrations from spacers occur because the spacers aren't hubcentric to the hub and the wheels. I think those will work just fine.

If you have a ski-pass from the trunk into the cabin, open it.

Another item to check is the...

You adjust the ride height using the threaded spring perch. The threads on the shock are to adjust the pre-load.

Just swap out the rears for the 255/30. the 255/30 is only 10mm shorter in height then the 235/35. A little shorter tire out back will help get rid of some of the rake in the ride height too.

You need to wait until you get your flares installed. Then install your wheels/tires with spacers. Then measure the distance from the inner fender where the wheel/tire would hit the inner fender.
