Yes, they will rub. I have an add a leaf up front and they rub on both sides. Little bit of trimming on the inner plastic fender fixed it.

I added a leaf to my red truck, have 35's on it, and they still rub... not bad, but they do rub a little. I took a heat gun to the plastic inner fender and was able to push it back a little to gain some clearance, and trimmed the back edge of the front bumper, it's smacked and bent so I was not worried about it, and it's not noticeable anyway, looks good. I'll live with a minor rub to have the look... makes the truck look tuff. The pic in my sig is with 285's, not the 35's, FYI.
