    Everyone,

    Just got some BFG All-Terrain ATs 265/75/16 installed on my 2004 TRD 4x4 and have frame rubbing at full lock even without any flexing. Its starting to rub the paint off the frame.

    Per Tacomaworld sticky I these were supposed to fit stock suspension without rubbing. Did I miss something?

    Any thoughts about a cheap/easy fix, they only have 200miles on them and don't want to go down a size?

    I will be installing an OME setup very soon. Will this get rid of the rubbing??

    Do you have the stock 03' Toyota wheels OR the newer 16" TRD wheel?

    I have the stock 16" 2004 TRD wheels. I assumed that the tires would fit without rubbing otherwise I would have bought the 265/70/16. Anyone else have this problem??

    Well a spacer might make it rub less, but it won't fix the problem. You'll still rub on the frame just not as much. Say goodbye to 12-point turns.

    Occasionally knock the surface rust off and repaint (once or twice a year). There's your fix.

    Spider-trax will fix the issue, your backspace isn't allowing clearance.

    Rather keep spacers out of it for wheel bearing reasons. Increased backspace wheels is fine; spacers, not so much.

    I guess I will just not go full lock for now. $200 for 4 pieces of aluminum seems like a ton of money.

    My impression that the OME kit will raise the frame relative to the wheel.

    Theoretically, does that mean I would likely only rub while the suspension is compressed??

    Well since the front is ifs, when you lift it you're actually going to move the wheel ever so closer to the frame as it pivots downward. And I don't think the lift is going to be high enough to make the tire clear the frame anyways.

    You get 24 pieces of steel, too. :D

    Interesting... I have a 2001 DC 4x4 SR5, put on BFG AT TA KO 275/70 R16s and they did the same exact thing. I put Spidertrax on and it fixed the problem, but now the tires rub on the fender flares and mud flaps.
