    I just got my tacoma lifted 2.5in and put some 285/75/16 tires on it. I took care of the rubbing with the plastic from the bottom portion of the bumper, but when after I back up and am turning the steering wheel back to get straightened out, the tire hits the bottom corner portion of the wheel well (right at the corner), what should I do?
