    For rub issues, you'll need to find out exactly what part of the tire is rubbing what part of the truck, and then adjust accordingly. I will say, that 2" of lift, seems pretty small for that size of tire. Solution may be as simple as increasing the lift height, as complex as torch work, or as expensive as new wheels or UCA's. Again, it just depends on what's hitting what.

    Look in the fender well and try to see where they're rubbing.

    Post some pics if you'd like.

    Like others posted, we need to know where it's rubbing. The most common culprits are the skid plate, body mount, and/or fender liner. If you look under the truck, it should be pretty obvious where the tires are rubbing

    Hey man I know this is an an old post but I’m having the same exact rubbing issue with my 37x13x50s. What did you do to solve the rubbing? I was thinking about taking my grinder to it until it clears...

    Grinding your frame?
    Fix for this to add wheel spacer to push the wheels out what are you running wheel width & offset 13.50 is a wide tire

    You would have to go with a wheel spacer to bring it out. Then you would have to check for other rubbing areas after that....ie front wheel well liner/mud flap area. Never take a grinder to your frame.

    I agree with you there. I’ve been looking at the 1.25” Spidertrax spacers. If you combine that with a +25 offset wheel would that be like having a 0 offset or even more negative offset wheel ? Not sure on the math there..
