tire rubbing after leveling?

I installed a 2.5" leveling kit on my f250. Ive done the front but not yet the rear. Wont have time for the rear for probably a couple weeks as I have to go out of town. I installed my 35x12.5r20 on my 20x9" fuel mavericks with +01 backspacing. At full right turn it rubs pretty good. It was my understanding it wouldnt rub stock let alone lifted? Do I need to trim? Getting it aligned right now. It drives straight and rides good.

Any idea?

Do you have mudflaps? I'm guessing you are rubbing fender wells but my 33's rub my mudflaps on my unlifted/unleveled f250

No mudflaps. Its a 2013 f250. I dont mind having to trim I just don't want mask an underlying issue.

Where is it rubbing?

Fenders?
Inner liners?
Radius arms?
Front bumper braces?

Looks to be rubbing on liners on passenger side.

Trimmed about an inch off. All good! Just weird. Did not think that was necessary with this wheel tire combo, even without leveling kit.

I generally just pull them back an inch with some heavy duty zip ties.

Most guys on here don't consider it "rubbing" unless it actually hits the metal fenders.

Ok great. Just wasn't quite sure. Wanted to make sure it wasnt another issue I missed.
