Default tire / lift clearances and fixes?

Good day,

So i got a 4" rancho susp lift and got some ion alloy rims with a -8mm offset and 315-70-17 terra trac tires on order coming in. should of been in by now...

I did a bit of reaserch and read I should be fine but I want to confirm that as im getting a bit worried ill run into some issues.

should I expect any rubbing with a -8mm offset on 17x9" rims with a 315-70 tire?

I know the rancho susp lift kits come with a bigger steering knuckles and I needed a offset so i can have the tire and rim clear the knuckle properly.

I read that - offsets cause bigger tires to rub in the fenders? what are fixes some of you guys have done to cure the issues?

Trying to have an idea of what I can do if I do run into any issues once im at the garage installing my new rims n tires.

Here's an older pic of my truck with the lift kit and oem tires if I remember right

dont mind the dirt... it did need a bath at the time lol

Thanks in advance,

NWRQC will become famous soon enough

I didn't see any backspacing requirement to run their lift (aside from stock BS/offset). You should be more than fine with that offset, for a stock set-up you only need a +12mm offset on a 9" rim to clear that tire width.
