Serious rubbing with 285/70/17 cooper stt's

    Wheels/tires 3" Toytek coilover w/ OME rear springs (no blocks) Billstien shocks, K&N CAI, TRD Exhaust.
    So i installed my 3 inch lift and sent it to the tire place to have the tires mounted/balanced. I have 17x9 (5.5 inch back spacing) mounted to 285/70/17 cooper stts' and i take it home to find out it rubs. i thought it was just the norm, front mud flaps and the cup deally in front of the wheel well. I took off the mud flaps and found that it clears, but if the truck articulates in the front, it will run up into the rear part of the front fenders. And in the front of the front fenders where the cup dealy is, the tires rub, but they rub the actuall fender. not the cups. What the hell am i supposed to do now? If you can help, let me know what you did. Or if there is a post on this same topic, just tell me where it is and i will read through it. Hopefully there is a cheap fix for it. I dont feel like losing my bumper for an all-pro just to make room for tires. Let me know, thanks!

    You have to trim the liner inside the fender. Turn your wheels to left and right to see how much you have to trim. You only need to trim a little bit off of each side. Your still going to rub on the frame mounts when you flex though.

    Are you rubbing to the plastic wheel wells? In order to clear 33" tires, you need to trim them. Try searching the forum, you'll find answers and pictures.

    I will be installing 33" tires tomorrow and I'm ready to trim. I can post pictures after I'm done.

    I would get new rims with less backspacing. Your thread is the reason I went 265/75/16 good luck and post some pics when you get it all sorted out :)

    MAybe mine aren't rubbing because of the difference in wheel. I'm running the same size in a Moto Metal with 4.5" backspacing.
