Hello Everyone,

Just got my 6" lift installed with 20x12 -52 offset 4.45 backspacing on 37x13.5 nitto ridge grapplers. I am experiencing rubbing on a full turn. I can't visually see where its rubbing, I don't see the tire hitting anything, however its definitely rubbing I can see the marks on the tire especially on the driver's side and I hear it. What should I be looking out for and how unsafe is this? There is plenty of room so that's why I don't understand what's causing the rub.

Where are marks on the tire? Edge if the tread (inside or outside)? ON the tread? Sidewall (inside or outside)?
Any scuff marks on the fender, bumper, leaf spring, frame? This info may help narrow the the focus.
Have you had someone turn the wheels to lock while you check around the tire and areas above?

Just figured out where it's rubbing, its right over here. Where I marked it red. I will have to figure out, how to cut some off there.

If it's on the metal fender it will need to be trimmed. If it's the felt behind it you can let it rub
