    I have 265/70/17 Nitto Terra Grapplers and SpiderTrax wheel spacers on my stock TRD Sport wheels (no lift) and have some occasional rubbing. Everything I read said that 265/70/17 should have no rubbing issues at all. Is it the spacers causing the rubbing? I have no idea what's involved if I have to trim. Any help is appreciated!

    Why did you need spacers with stock rims?

    Yeah the rubbing is just on the front flaps. Is there a downside to removing the front flaps entirely as opposed to trimming them?

    I didn't need spacers. I just got them b/c I like the wider, more aggressive stance. I don't ever plan on getting aftermarket wheels, so spacers are the only way for me to help with that.

    the only down side I can figure is the lack of that little bit of dirt protection
