Trojan- my 265's rub pretty good right now. I plan on trying to fix the fender when the weather gets warmer. I'm keeping my jeep lifted so it will be worth the mod for future upgrades.
are you rubbing under normal driving conditions? i have a set of moabs that i'm trying to get up and running by summer....

Re: A up lifting transformation

That map is an underestimation! I blew two tires on the expressway in my maxima!!!

No worries about the hijack. Think about lifting tho. There are so many srt8 in mass, 2 srt8's and one look a like just at my college. Lol

Re: A up lifting transformation

Anigav- I can only turn the steering wheel about half way in one direction without the tire making contact with the fender. It really isn't that big of a deal for me because I back into every spot and make wider turns.

Do you have a lift or spacers?

Re: A up lifting transformation

i dont as of yet...i'm leaning towards the spidertrax spacers....POSSIBLY the daystar 2" but really trying to fight the urge.

...i might go with a 255/75/17 as referenced by this thread http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f67/w...ck-wk-1089620/

Re: A up lifting transformation

Looks awesome JonJon. Wish I had the time to take off in August b/c my family reunion is going to be up your way but I want to take my gf to Salem this October since she's never been up there for the halloween festivites. So maybe we can meet up if we get up there than.

Thats the setup I'm running and it only rubbed at full lock.

Re: A up lifting transformation
