Where do they rub? If it's the front bumper you can cut the bottom corner off to stop them from rubbing. When done correctly you can't even tell that it's cut.

My 97 4x4 F350 will fit 35" tires with the bumper cut.

they dont rub the bumper, that would be real easy to fix. it is when you turn the back of the tire rubs on what i think is a sway bar ussually in parking lots and when you go through a turn at a pretty good speed it might do it

pictures always help, if the tire is rubbing any metal you will see where the metal is buffed clean, and it will give you an idea where it is rubbing.
