That sounds like stock tire size. It rubbed when i went over big bumps and turned real tight. It tore up the plastic inner fender some.
Do a 2/3? Or how about just getting new wheels and tires.

As you can see, it fills the fender well compared to smaller tires:

Save the money bro....that is what i should have done. Its a trap these mods are. I'd have lots more money if i didn't throw it into the truck. But stock tires will work i guess...be a pain sometimes but itll work.

Just buy all the parts, and pull a long weekend installing it all. Its a huge shock when you get it all installed and such a nice thing to have it all done at one time. That is what i'm doing with some of my build right meow.
