What happened here?

So i thought i did my research but idk? I have a stock 07 wk and i just ordered some new tires. I got the general grabber at2 in 255/65/17... from what i read they should fit with no issues at all.. welllll thats not the case lol i literally could barely fit the tip of a pencil between the UCA bolt and the tire.. way to close. I got some crappy 5/16 spacer and i can just about fit a pencil in there. just ordered my spidertraxx spacers.. i guess i should have done a test fit but i never heard of anyone having issues with this size, so why am i?

Because it's standard practice to cut that bolt shorter to clear the tire.

Re: What happened here?

If you can fit a pencil in there your fine. The stud can never get closer to the tire than it is. I'd be more concerned about the slip on spacers your using and how many turns you got out of your lugs. And if your getting bigger spacers prepare for a pinch weld mod.
