Rubbing

2012 f250 8" procomp lift 37x13.50x17 toyos. 17x9 -12mm
Tires rub every time I turn. They rub on the inner fender and on the radius arm. Is this normal for an 8" lift with 37s?

I wouldn't think they would rub especially being on such a narrow wheel. They rub the radius arm because the wheel needs to be more offset to stick out further but that usually makes it rub the fender more.

I have 37s on a 4.5 inch lift and mine don't rub unless I hit a bump while turned. I did trim some inside the backside of the fenders though.

It's normal for Superduty's to rub the wheel fenders. Some people trim it, some zip tie it back, some get a heat gun and form it back for clearance. I typically trim it and zip tie it back but that's because I like wide wheels with a very negative offset.

You need spacers or correct offset wheels to get off the radius arms. Or....you could run a 3 link or 4 link kit and get rid of those beefy arms

The fender liner rub is pretty common and can be solved by pulling back the inner lines with a few HD zip ties.

Are you sure about your wheel offset? With a 9" wheel with a negative offset I wouldn't expect it to be rubbing there.
