Goodyear Fierce Attitude M/T's are FINALLY ON!

Just got the new tires put on, just need to plasti-dip the wheels, roof slides, and grill. Went with 275/65R18's and I'm running 1.25" BORA wheel spacers. My two front tires are rubbing though on the front fender when turning. Need to figure out a solution ASAP, any ideas? I tried trimming the plastic but did not work. Thanks for the help.

Take off the spacers or get a lift or leveling kit. I have the same size tire on stock wheels, no spacer or lift or anything and haven't rubbed. Looks good by the way!

I see that you have a 2014, are the dimensions roughly the same as far as wheel well and everything? I thought in order to run this size I needed spacers to move the tire away from the upper ball joint...thanks for the help!

The wheel well shouldn't have changed for the '14. Without spacers, the tire will turn just inside the plastic where yours is rubbing. Raising the front end will also take care of this.

If you want the look with the spacers, I would take them off until you get a lift or leveling kit. That's what I'd like to do, just don't know that I'll ever get around to it.

I haven't had any issues rubbing anywhere, including the upper ball joint.

Okay I'll give it a shot and take off the spacers and see if it rubs anywhere. Thanks for the help Steiner84
