    Well its not much but they definitely rub the forward part of the wheel well. Should I trim it or but a small lift on it for now? Long Travel is in my near future so I want a cheap temporary fix.

    That's a pretty odd size and I'm not surprised they rub.

    If it's just on the plastic in the fender well, trim away....

    Is the suspension modified?

    If so, check your caster too. If you are rubbing in the front, you may have insufficient caster. Less caster moves the wheel forward, moves the tire patch closer to the steering axis (line between upper and lower balljoints - measured as compared to a vertical axis), and can lead to wandering. Too much caster moves the wheel back and the tire patch back away from the steering axis, and closer to the mud flap.

    I have a 3 inch lift (Toytec top spacer and OME 885's) and now I have too much caster, rub on the mudflaps, opposite of you! Good luck.

    Thanks for the heads up. I decided on going with a 3 inch prerunner style lift from ready lift for a temp fix because I am going with the Allpro Plate bumper here in a couple days. I fear that my tire will get messed up with the plate bumper so untill long travel is added the lift is the safer option.
