tires rubbing with superlift?

i notice when im turning right and going uphill, like into a parking lot the passenger side tire is rubbing somewhere, i have 33x1250x15s with a superlift and the tbars are turned up a bit, dont know why all of a sudden its happening, has anyone had a similar problem before? between the shittylift brackets breaking and the fender flares getting hit constantly im just about to say the hell with all of this and buy something else.

Whats the backspacing on the wheels? Flex out the truck on a rock or hill or something and see where its hitting.

i think the bs is 3.75 they are procomp 1069 or something, 15x8 with 375 irrc. if i creep into it, it will not rub but driving down the road and turning up it will sound like its ripping the fender off of the truck. only spot i have noticed rub marks is on the back inside of the wheel well maybe an inch wide. only way i can think of is when it compresses its hitting it but there really isnt much room between the lca and bumpstop so not sure how the tire would make it that far in?

I bet its hitting your valence. When i got my brand new km2's the lugs were bigger than on my worn kumho m/t and i had to trim the valence.

check it out before the tire rips it off lol

its not hitting at the front but on the rear of the flare area, the lugs are pretty good size they are firestone destination mt's but i never noticed it before but now i know what it is, always happens turning into somewhere while driving and the tire transitions up an angel.
