    Front tires rubbing only in reverse. Normal driving no rub. Anyone have any ideas? Should I take it back to shop for more alignment?

    We have no idea what wheel/tire/lift combo your running so it would be near impossible for us to diagnose over the internet.

    If you're 100% stock, you're definitely out of alignment and should take to the dealer immediately. There is no reason a brand new stock Tacoma should be rubbing in forward or reverse.

    Usually the rubbing is on the front flap in front of tire. I take it you have a lift with larger tires.

    With 285's you need a CMC.

    It's not hitting the cab mount. Just the corner right where the fender flare is inside the wheel well. I'll look for the alignment numbers and post in a bit

    depends on how much lift he got and what his castor was set at. plenty are running 285s without a problem.

    The first pic is passenger and second is driver side.
    Ok so had the wife reverse in both directions. The driver side rubs more than passenger. Took measurements and driver side is about 1/2in lower, will adjust coil 1/4 in. To compensate the lean. But it does look like I will need to trim the inner plastic and do the cmc.
