tire rub
« on: September 04, 2013, 10:11:36 AM »
So I have had this issue since I put the tires on... when the suspension flexes and I am turning, the tire rubs on the body.  The tires are BFG Rugged Terrain 265/75/16's and the rims are Helo Maxx 6's 16x10 with 4.5" backspacing.  The x has a 2" BL on it so the tires should fit.  Is this something that spacers would fix?  Or do I need to chop it up some more?

265? That's really weird that stock size tires are rubbing. The backspacing sounds like your issue, I think mine are 4.75 and I rub at half turn but my tires are 32x12.5s I believe. I wouldn't chop but that's just me haha. I just turn really wide!

Yeah you just need to cut up fender and make room. The backspacing on the wheels have put your tires out of the fender enough that your rubbing real good while turning, only cutting fenders to make more room will fix it. Spacers is exactly what you don't want, spacers will put the tire out further making the rubbing even worse.

I thought spacers would make it worse, but I know that to be a second gen issue.  Not sure about the 1st gens.

10" wide wheels with 10.4" (265mm) wide tires has got to be an interesting sight to see.  Those wheels are really wide, and that is what is giving you the issues.  Nothing that a little (more) trimming won't cure...

yeah I'm really unhappy with the tires.  Unfortunately I didn't realize how much I hated them until it was to late.  I don't mind the wheels but I really wish they were 8" not 10".  Might sell them and see if I can get some smaller ones.

The wheels are your issue,  no reason to have 10" wide wheels with those tires.  those are stock size tires.  My opinion, get new wheels and be done.
