Ugh, 35s are rubbing
 
Here's a link that pretty much describes my set-up

http://ramforumz.com/showthread.php?...=rough+country

I'm having rubbing issues. Not terrible, but definitely annoying. It does not rub at all when I turn right, but when I turn left it will rub once in while, depending upon the incline of the road (inclining up is fine, the rubbing occurs when the road inclines down). The rubbing is on the back side of the fender. A picture is below. I've already hammered it down as much as possible.

My question is, should I try getting wheel spacers to attempt to resolve this problem? My backspacing is 4.5". I realize none of you can say with any certainty "Yes, spacers would definitely work and you'll never have rubbing again," but I'd appreciate any thoughts on the subject. Is it worth spending the money to give them a shot? If you were me, what size spacer would you try?

I don't know if you wouldn't still rub on the inside of the fenders with a wheel spacer.

Spacers won't help with that issue. What will is 1) a shorter tire, or, 2) more lift.

X2 with what maddog said.

mad dog is right..spacers will just pop them out a bit..you will still rub the inner fender..IMO

Get the saw out! Start cutting haha. When I had big tires without the right amount of lift I had to cut my bumper and the fender wells.

Either get a 3in. body lift or get the saw out.

You couldn't pay me enough to cut on my truck.Just lift the front more.Or do a 3" body lift.

I hear ya man, I didn't want to do it at all. What cutting I did is very well done so it isn't noticeable. It hurts that I know it is there but it is alright. I want to replace the bumper anyways, just more of a reason to do so haha

I agree the body lift is the cheapest way to lift the truck some more and it will look good.

+1 for the body lift I think body lifts look real good to if the truck already has some sort of suspension lift. It will make your truck look taller and will eliminate rubbing issues and relatively cheap to
