Rubbin

Got a 2.5" leveling kit put on and running 35 by 12.50s and their rubbin a bit in hard left turn. If I throw some 16X10 inch rims on it will it fix the rubbin?

i dont think it will.... all depends on what offset you go with... but a bigger offset will make them stick out more

You can also get wheel spacers if you don’t want to get new rims.

i dont like using wheel spacers esp in the front but its always an option... yup they are rubbing on the leafs ... other option is just not turn it as much... my 37's rub on my leafs right now on an 8" lift so i dont think its an leveling kit issue more a wheel spacer issue

My 35's(on AE 16X10 rims with 4" spring lift) don't rub the springs but I had to do some reworking of the metal seam behind fender liners and move the running boards back 3/4" to keep from rubbing if I turned.

MY TIRES RUB. I GOT THE SAME LEVELING KIT AS YOU I HAVE STOCK RIMS WITH 35 IN. BFG MUD TIRES AND THEY RUB WHEN I TURN THE WHEELS ALL THE WAY AS FAR AS THEY CAN GO IF YOU LIFT IT MORE ITS STILL GOIN TO RUB. ITS THE OFFSET OF THE WHEELS MAKIN IT RUB. THE BAD THING IS IF YOU PUSH THE OFFSET OUT THERE TO FAR YOULL START HITTIN SHEET METAL
