    Hey,

    I just upgraded my tires on my '03 Tacoma, I went from Wrangler Silent Armor 265 70R 16's to Wrangler DuraTrac 265 75R 16's I was under the impression that I wouldn't have any rubbing issues, I went to test them out and I rub when I turn Left. I'm rubbing on the rear of the fender well on the Driver side basically on the mud flap and the plastic just above the flap. I also rub on the frame on both sides when I turn either direction but only when I'm at full lock but the amount is very minor.

    I am looking for some solutions to the rubbing. I've tried trimming the plastic above the mudflap but there is still some contact when I'm going over rougher terrain.

    Would more intense trimming fix it, by looking at it I doubt it, or should I look at a lift and/or spacers?? I'm fairly new to this so pardon the newb questions but any help would be appreciated. I'm also not made of money so if I could do it for less than 4 or $500 that would be nice.

    youll need to do the pinch weld mod and probably put on some 1/4 wheel spacers(10$ a piece) to fully clear everything
