Question Are my -28mm offset 35x12.50's always going to rub?

I have a set of Moto Metal 951's with the -28mm offset, and 35x12.50/18 Nitto MT's on them and they rubbed even with a 4.5in lift kit on my 05 F250. I read that a lot of people were able to mount 35's on 08-10 without a leveling kit so I tried that tonight on the front and they seemed to rub about the same amount as they did on my 05. Even though my 2010 is bone stock.

I was curious if because of the offset of these and the super wide stance if they are always going to rub at full ****? I ask because if they rubbed with a 4.5 lift kit, I am assuming a 2.5 inch leveling kit isn't going to make any difference on the 2010 I just purchased.

I am leaving this Friday for a trip with the toy hauler and am looking to beef up the stance a little instead of the stock 17's and wanted to see if anyone knew if these would always rub at full **** before I mounted them and let them go.

Thanks!

Sorry about the *** it means full turn, just a "bad" word....

Where are they rubbing? I run the same wheels/offset with 35x12.50x20 ATZ and I dont have any rubbing, I have 2.5" up front. Only thing it rubbed was the inner fenderwell liner and you can take a knife and make a slit to slide a zip tie through to hold it back or you can cut it. I cut it the same way it was factory, just about an inch bigger so you can not even tell it has been cut

That is good news as my 2.5 leveling kit will be here and installed next weekend, so I am just running stocks right now. Are you talking about the front fender liner or the rear. Mine appear to be rubbing the rear fender liner by the nerf bar right now, but again that is not leveld. I think they were also rubbing the inner liner up front, but again, this is not with a 2.5 leveling kit yet.

I just was curious as I am racing this weekend and have to haul the toy hauler and was hoping for the heavier duty wheels/tires and wider stance. I think I may mount them up anyways and just austin powers the toy hauler out of storage, back and forth, back and forth lol.

Thank you for your help.

Yeah, that is definitely where I saw the rubbing last night when I had the fronts on. But mine is rubbing on the bottom of the rear fender liner, like midway across the width of the wheel well. I feel like 2.5 inches will make it clear though and should know next weekend.

Thanks for your help.
