Talk me out of being scared from tire rub/selling new tires

I just bought 285/70/17 Dueler revo 2s and they rub. I literally drove home and posted them on kijiji to sell because it scares me that I will fuck something up. Should I? I dont understand where to start trimming.

When you rub, stop, get out, look where its touching and then go from there.... thats what i think ill end up happening if i go up to 285's

Edit, How much of a lift do you have?

lol no but i hate the sound of rubbing and with all these new parts my past experiences where horrible modding vehicles and im ready to start thinking about putting it back to stock. I ordered the cab mount chop pieces from JLee today and Im going out to cut the plastic. Did you guys actually cut the blue (mine is SWB, or whatever color you have) on the fender? or just the black part?

It says in your details that your 5100's are only set at 1.75''. The first thing I would do, if they are still set that low, is get them set to 2.5". Then you will have less rubbing and less to trim.

If they are at 2.5" just go out to your truck with a box cutter/some kind of knife/snips, turn the wheel left and cut what is touching, turn the wheel right and cut what is touching. It's just plastic that nobody is ever going to notice unless they have their head in your fender.
