    I recently had issues with Mickey Thomson (4-7/16 backspace) hitting the caliper so I went out and bought Eagle 185s (4" backspace). The rims comes within a 1/16th of an inch of hitting the caliper but it does fit. Should I shave a tiny bit off the caliper where it would hit if it ever would?

    Well i got my lift and wheels/tires installed yesterday and when I got home I felt the back of the wheel and they are indeed scratching up against the caliper. it's fairly minor scratching but I think I'll go ahead and take them off and shave the caliper slightly
