    I've got a 2017 TRD Pro on a stock suspension with 295/70R-18 Ridge Grapplers. I just installed BORA 1.25" spacers on the front and have a rubbing issue. The outside edge of the tire rubs against the front inner wheel well liner. I'm planning to install the Coachbuilder shims and shackles. Can anyone with a similar set-up confirm if that will alleviate the rubbing issue?

    There is a mod for that. I’ve been searching trying to find it for you but all I can find is people talking about it. I know there’s a write up around here somewhere. You unbolt the front part of the fender liner and fasten it in a new location further away from the tire.

    I have +20 offset wheels that I just installed 295/70r18 tires on and I had to trim my front wheel liner. I ended up crawling under it and unbolting it and drilling a new hole in the liner and pushing it forward and using the new hole I drilled as my bolt hole with the existing hole on the metal bumper piece. That way the new hole I drilled held the liner further away from the tire. I still had rubbing so I ended up just cutting about a 1 inch wide gap out of the liner where the bent edge is. My tires seemed to just hit that rounded edge so I just cut it out and now I have zero rubbing hope what I said makes sense

    In addition to what they said, shims and shackles won't likely fix your rubbing issue.

    Hey Erik, I don't have a Pro but have the same tire and size, along with 1.25 Spyder Trak Spacers . I'm on 6112's at top setting, around 2.5 " . I know the Pro's are @ 2". I'm rubbing @ full lock on my little mud flap. Not enough for me to worry about, but you can try taking a heat gun and heating area and pushing it in. Don't know if the Pro's have that little flap you could remove. Good luck

    There are a bunch of guys on here running that size tie on a pro with shims and shackles that do not rub. I have 2 shims and +3 shackles. I also have 1.25" spidertrax. Haven't upgraded tires yet but plan on running the same size as you and am not really concerned.

    Can't give you a definitive answer based on my set-up, but I can tell you from what I've read I am not worried about rubbing. You can also avoid some rubbing with the right alignment specs.
