Default Why am I rubbing?!? PICS

OK so I bought my Megacab a few weeks ago with a set of Fuzion XTI 325/65/18s on it. It was rubbing pretty bad at full turn, so I threw a 2.5"/1.5" Leveling kit on it immediately. Now I dont rub unless Im compressing the suspension while turning. Keep in mind im down to like 6-7/32 left on these tires. Im only measuring 33" tall right now. Yet I see others with leveling kits running 35x12.50s...? Are mine just too wide, or wrong offset? (idk what my offset is on these wheels) I noticed the Terra Grapplers (1 on left rear) have a wider foot print and less sidewall curve but the same size as the fronts. would these be better or worse for the front? Here are some pics... Thanks for your help

look on the backside of the wheel, should have the offset


that's probably your issue

hmm shouldn't be rubbing. but your tires are 12.8 inches wide.

so it's only when it flexes? just the nature of your set up i guess. any trimming you can do?

Yeah just on flex now. However when I got buy a new set if I stay at 325/65 then Ill add 1.5-2.0" of tread making them probably rub...

Wonder if a 35x12.50 would be a better bet??

...and as you can see in the pic, Im not sure what all I can trim, I took a hammer to that bottom corner to push it back in some since the previous owner let the tire eat the fender some.

I think more offset would make it worse...? It's not so much that I need the flex but more of when I put brand NEW tires on with a whole lot more tread the are most likely going to rub just backing out of my driveway or finding a parking spot at walmart. Damn Megacabs are long as hell lol, full turn is a MUST!
