295/60 R20 on 20x10 w/ 2.5" level kit still rubbing

I just had a 2.5" level kit installed and 295/60R20 Toyo AT II tires on 20x10 wheels. I was told this would not rub but they do. On turning they rub on the mud flaps. I do notice that the back end of the truck sits at least an 1" lower which would drive the back of the wheel well towards the tire. If I level the back will this fix the rubbing problem? The truck is a 2016 F350 Lariet.

I am no expert especially on the newer trucks
but it looks to me like your front axle is sitting further back than it should
do you have any history on the truck?

I like mead

99.9% of the time when you're told if something will fit, mudflaps aren't part of the equation. Try taking them off and see if they still rub. 99.9% of trucks with aftermarket wheels/tires don't run front flaps as they're the first thing to hit.

Full wheel specs please. At first 20x10 seems to be the problem, I think the offset is what is killing the steering.


For the rear you would need to move the rear axle forward to get it centered in the wheel well. With your idea of going taller was my idea for my own ride. Lift the front 2.5" and go 1.5" taller on the rear, centering the rear axle. Not to mention the front axle can be centered/aligned better with adjustable arms.

Are they rubbing on the front or rear? It looks like there is too little offset (too much negative offset) on those wheels but that should only affect the front. There are a number of members that have put 295/65r20 on STOCK wheels with no rubbing. Those are larger tires by nearly an inch. Stockers are 8" wide with close to 0 offset.

Really? Wow. I guess the info I found was way wrong. Dont recall where that was. Where did you find the OEM spec?

What kind of leveling kit did you use? My 2011 is leveled and running 37s with minimal rubbing at full lock
