how can i make this work??????

I just got a 2 inch lift to make my new tires and rims fit, but apparently the rims are too wide(15x8). The tires stick out past the fenders and the guy doing the lift right now said that they were rubbing too much. What is the cheapest way to make these wheels fit without rubbing????

the 15x8 shouldnt matter because i think stock is 15x7... the backspacing might not be enough and thats whats causing it to stick out far and when you turn it hits the inside

judging for your pic you have a older ranger?

the only way your gona get this wheel tire combo to work is one (or both) of two things, your gonna have to get a supension lift or cut the fenders and get flares.
