    I know this has been talked to death but Ill at least take a point in the right direction.I just put on 5100's at 2.5 with new Uca's to get proper caster , pro comp 7032 wheels 17x9 with a 4.75" backspace.I am happy with the alignment , caster is good and steering is tight but the tires are rubbing the frame. At 265/70r17 there not that big. Im hoping just some wheel spacers will help?Just curious if anyone with a similar setup had any luck with spacers.I did A lot of searching but found mostly problems with larger tire sizes! tires are BFG AT.

    I think 4.5 BS would be better as the wheels would be further away from the inner fender...

    They're damn near the same as a 265/75R16 (slightly smaller actually). When and where are they hitting the frame?

    Body mount chop unless you wanna try the full 3" lift but I'm not sure that would work.

    More positive caster actually moves the wheel tire to the front of the car, not back towards the firewall.

    I had these tires and wheels actually before this setup with a 2.25 Leveling front spacer and didn't rub the frame but now with this setup it's rubbing the frame.

    Probably because more lift sucks the wheels tire assembly in the fender more.
