275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

I got my new cooper LTZ's installed today. However the rear is rubbing big time on the rear felt liners. I have not heard anyone else seeing this. Any ideas?

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

Not what I wanted to hear, since I'm getting ready to this. Sorry to hear that. I wonder if year to year '11-'14 the felt liners are slightly different in thickness. Many of the jeeps I've been following here who have gone to the larger set have been '11-'12 model years.

Mine is a 2013. I am wondering if a 10mm spacer would take care of it?

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

Is that the only area that rubs? Sounds like a spacer would help, but hopefully someone else will chime in who had the same issue. How is the clearance in the front without the leveling kit?

EDIT: CityCrawler has a 2013 with the 275 Zeons, He has the level kit in the front and spacers on, but I think he had the Zeons, put on before the spacers. Not sure if you saw this thread:

Yes I made my decision based on his thread. It only needs a very small amount to not run.
The leveling kit went on yesterday. It rode great with the lift. Had to adjust the headlights but not a big deal.

Subbie yours is a 2012. Maybe there's a slight change between 2012 and 2013 to the liners. Although city crawler has a 2013.

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

It only seems to rub when I brake harder, and when I hit bigger dips in the road. I will get a pic in the morning.

There shouldn't be any change in the suspension setup. The suspension setup is the same across the board. Interested to see pictures to see what he's talking about.

Re: 275/55/20 rubbing inner fender on the rear

i am running 285 50R20 on my stock limited 2014 no rub on front or back

here are the cooper zeon specs compared to the stock good year 265 tire


265/50R20 Overall Diameter 30.50 Section Width 10.90 Tread Width 8.3
275/55R20 Overall Diameter 31.93 Section Width 11.22 Tread Width 9.3
Change +1.43" +.32" +1.00"
285/50R20 Overall Diameter 31.29 Section Width 11.63 Tread Width 9.73
change + .79" +.73" +1.43"

there are the numbers
55 tire will be much taller and might rub off road more than the 50

Looking at the dimensions, the 285s give more breathing room with the fender the only issue is how close does the width bring you to the stud/ball joint stud, is that correct?
