Just got my Mud Grapplers slight rubbing

So I jus went to a local dealer and had some 305/70/16R Mud Grapplers put on the truck. I had them make sure they would clear at full turn and they did (BARELY) so I knew if it was at any kind of incline turned all the way they would rub and they do. It's not extremely bad but enough to have me more than a little concerned jus wondering what you guys think do I need a cab mount chop? It's fine in the front owner before me trimmed the plastic, however there's and 1" area on the metal at the bottom back of the fender well. I do have a lift installed before I bought it not sure how much or what kind. Thanks for reading

No pics I just found where it was rubbing and made them fit haha. Odds are your just rubbing on the plastic inner fender.

I just bought a brand new dremel from Lowes tonight to take care of my slight rubbing. Don't be afraid...Take it slow.

The kit comes with a plate to be welded on after the cut.

How bad is it on the tires to rub until I can do the CMC?

Depends on how bad they are rubbing. Like are they rubbing all the time or just when you turn. If it's just when you turn it's not that bad, but try and avoid it.
