Have you seen the Bushwacker fenders?

Yea, I've seen them. I'm still reserving my judgement until I get to see a set in person. Regardless, I do not think they would help in terms of clearance with the turning. The tire would still hit it hard enough to rip it out of its rivets.

Re: Installed: 18 x 9, 0 Offset , Leveling Kit , 275/65r18

I always wonder why the discussion continues...theres so much good info here as to fitment.
Mid offset +25 to +35 is the place to play if you don't want to rub when you go bigger on tires. +18 is about the max. Sure, 0 looks cool but guarantees you have to do more work than you want to. And 275 55 20s fit ALL DAY on a stock wheel and clear the bolt (ever so slightly.
Your setup looks good man, but you had to know going in that you'd have rub issues.

Thanks Todd. I was well aware of the rubbing issues which was a tradeoff for the look. Following advice on MatthewCheney's thread, I figured There would be some unavoidable rubbing going down there. I tried to placate as many issues I could, which included hammering back the pinch-weld and making easy cuts on the wheel well lining. I could probably cut a bit of the plastic fender flare where the rivet holes are, and get away with it, but as of now, I do enjoy the rugged look of them removed. But yes, as you said, +18 offset would be a good compromise for looks / functionality.

fyi, didnt mean to come across aggressive or rude. I still see a lot of guys on here that do this that are not aware of the rub....even with the tons of threads about the fitment topic.

No not all, no offense taken. Speaking of which, I was able to get the flares on without rubbing. I just had to cut out the bottom flap where the 1st rivet hole is. No more issues in that perspective so far.
