    Hello,

    I had a shop near me install some wheels/tires on my truck that I liked and now during full turn they rub the well and frame rail.

    I have a 2006
    My truck has a 3" leveling kit
    Wheels are 17x9
    Tires are 285x70x17


    Any idea why this is happening?

    Welcome to TW! 33" tires most of the time, will rub when turning. Search around the site, and you will see some solutions, such as trimming the parts that are making contact, etc.

    You have to check the backspacing on your wheels...stock 16" wheels are normally 16x7 or 16x7.5..you are running a 17x9<- width....you also went from a 265 width tire to a 285 width tire...like the answers above if you cant fix with trimming might need wheel spacers or chop chop

    Because 285/75R17 are too big to fit without trimming. You need to cut the front and rear plastic or you will end up pulling off your fender flare or front bumper when you compress the suspension in a turn.

    You may also have to chop your cab mounts, as you noted the tires are rubbing on the frame. Quite common for that tire size.
