    weird, you rubbed with 265/75/16 on ivan stewarts. do you know what the backspacing and offset are? I wouldn't think that'd you rub or that you'd even have to trim. it should've just fit.

    The Ivans already have the correct backspacing (4.5" I believe???), the spacers are moving them out too far.

    OP, were you rubbing before the spacers? If not, I think dark night may be on to something.
