    I originally posted in the new members forum and realized then realized I wasnt suppose to ask questions in that forum.

    I have an 03 Double Cab TRD 4WD and I just got new tires and wheels about 3 weeks ago. I have 16 in Moto Metal Rims and 265/75R 16 Wild Country Mud Terrian tires on them. When I turn sharp I have a little rubbing of the tires on the wheel well. What is my best option to solve this problem? I am currently planning on putting a 2in leveling kit (this one to be exact http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...i%3D1&viewitem= ), but would anything else be better? I am wanting to do this over christmas when my brother is in town to help me.

    Second question: I am going to buy a hunter stainless steel bull bar and I am wanting to put some HID's on it. I have read some threads on here about the Hellas then converting them and that seems to be the cheapest route but I wanted some more opinions.

    I am new to owning a truck and I am not very good mechanic so all suggestions and help will be appreciated.

    The leveling kit will take care of it. I had the same issue with aftermarket wheels. Leveling kit n they never rubbed again.
