Welcome to the forum, those tires must rub a lot! I'm on 2" of lift with those size tires and I rub at full lock and when hitting certain bumps while turning.

They are real close but they don't rub any more than the stock tires did, only cause they are 1/2 worn road tread lol. When they get replaced I'll have to trim the fender a bit but that's no biggie.

Looks like the stock tires rubbed the frame sometimes from looking at the shinier spot on the frame, but this was before I switched the tires. Maybe the person who owned it before me had bigger tires but I don't think so from what he was telling me.

Yeah I held off for a few months because I was afraid it was going to be a pain in the butt and of course it didn't disapoint lol
