The wheels are stock 20s. It's rubbing on both when you turn the wheel at full lock

its your wheels.... your tires are too wide for those stock wheels.... you need a diff wheel that are wider and that have the right offset...

Today I cut a chuck of the fender well out for clearence and that worked good. I can live with the rubbing I have now. The tire rubbing against the fender well is what was annoying. Now it is time to start looking for a lift kit.

Even with the lift it will still rub at full lock, but that's all. I very rarely rub mine because I've gotten so adjusted to not turning my wheel all the way. I have contemplated on new wheels many times, but keep going back to the look of the factory 20's and the fact that they don't stick out as far and chunk rocks all over my truck. Just my .02

What bout 2'' wheel spacers do they make them that lug pattern yet? That would fix it.
