    Hi guys, gals
    So I was out running around the desert with stock size 4 ply tires and ended up getting a flat tire.. Took it to the tire shop and it had a nice gash in the tread.. Talked my wife into letting me buy new tires and she did.. I went with a 285/75 18 or 35/11.5 took my front flaps off and inner lower fender.. But at a semi sharp turn I rub on the cab mount that sits behind the front tires.. Will a wheel spacer help so it won't rub? Any thoughts would help.. Oh I have a toytec 3" spacer lift and 1.5 add a leaf in rear.. And 18" ballistics anvel wheels

    Just trim the front bumper and re-tap the lining back in.

    It's not in the front that I have an issue with.. It's the cab/ body mount right behind the front wheel..

    Ballistic Anvil comes with 12 mm offset and 0 offset. The way your tires rub, it sounds like yours is 0 offset. You need wheels with higher offset or smaller tires. Wheel spacers will make the rubbing problem worse.

    If changing the wheels or tires is not feasible, you will have to chop the body mount. I personally don't want to do it, so I went with 18 mm offset. But the process doesn't seem that bad. This link may be helpful (http://www.off-road.com/trucks-4x4/project/fixing-tire-rub-from-large-offroad-tires-53862.html).

    An, first pic looked like it was rubbing that front end pretty well, maybe I looked at it wrong. :anonymous:
    Have you considered a cab mount chop? I had the CMC done.

    Yes I have , trying to find a place the will do it. It's only the out side edge of the tire that rubs, that's why I was thinking about a wheel spacer.. Logic right? Push the edge of the tire out, it would have further to travel before contact?
