Got rubbing with 295/70/18, thinking of 305/65/18, Quick Qs

Hey,

I have a 3/1 set up, but unfortunately, I got rubbing with 295/70/18 tires. My wheels have a +20 offset. I guess I can live with the rubbing but the tire shop will exchange for a different size.

I was going to go with 305/65/18 tires. The tires will need to be ordered so they can't test fit. From what I've read, these tires are one inch shorter.

Anyone have good luck with a 3/1 lift and no rubbing with 305s? If not, I may play it safe and go with 275/70/18. A lot of affordable tires in 275.

Thanks

Rubbing where? You are always going to need some plastic modding with that set up. Just fix it.

Rubbing on the mud flap of the front wheel. Only rubs when wheel is fully turned. Even with mud flap removed, it still rubs. It annoys me enough to try a smaller tire size.

Interested to hear from folks who are running 305/65/18 tires. Thx

Everyone's experience will be different because alignment effects the fore-aft position of the wheel. High caster will move it forward though (like yours), which is good.

In a few minutes you could move the front liner forward and get rid of the rub. If you want.

Behind the front mud flap (Pic attached) is part of the metal frame. It's making contact with that when I cut the wheel. Just makes it feel junky so happily opting for a smaller tire.

Unless they really changed something for '18 (which I doubt) that is an easy fix. You can remove the bolts that hold the front of the liner in place (on the bottom), trim it a bit and move it forward, then drill new holes and reattach bolts.

I test fitted 295/70/18 and also had rubbing with a 3" lift. It rubbed on the front wheel liner and the rear mud flap. Also tried on 305/65/18 and they rubbed too. Ended up going with a 285/70/18. I did end up pushing the wheel liner forward another inch and would like to try on the 295/70's again.

I ended up purchasing the Wildpeak AT3W tires in 275/70/18. I got them for $158 a piece, which is a great price. I've had them before and they are a great performing tire.

It's a ten minute fix, tops.

I am also looking to put 305/65r18 bfg ko2 on stock rims. It is hard to find direct answers and I've searched for weeks. I have 1.25" spidertrax spacers and a LRO 3/1 level. What kind of rubbing will I get where? I don't mind taking off the front(front) small mud flap and pushing the liner up and redrilling the holes for that. What about the skid plate and front(rear) mud flap? I have OEM style bushwhacker fender flares that slip over the front(rear) mud flap and I'm not sure if it would look right if I removed the mud flap with these flares. Also, the 3/1 leveling kit came with steering bump stops to limit the turning radius, so full lock(where most people seem to have rub) is slightly limited. I have a 2017 DC with TRD package. I would love to hear from someone with this exact setup.
