Exclamation 35's rubbing what do i do?

hey guys last summer I put a 3" top gun customz suspension lift in my truck I absolutely love it but when I went to put 35" Goodyear wrangler mt/r (which are also amazing we have them on the new hummer's in the mass guard), on my truck they rub on the wheel wells if I turn hard left and push the tire up in the wheel well. what do I need to do so I donít have this issue? can I get wheel well cutouts? could I just use 1" lift blocks? or do I need to do a 1" or more body lift? or do I need a new lift kit maybe a 4 or 5" those just got real expensive

are you in the market for some new rims? That would probably be the cheapest alternative (best ) IMO.

35" tires will fit on a stock height truck with rims with the proper backspacing.

It would depend on if you need more or less offset.
What is the width and offset of your current rims?

Spacers are not all created equal. It changes the way the weight and torque are transferred tongue ground. Care should be taken if using them.

In my truck, I needed less offset to make the 35 "tires fit. I only have a +10mm offset i think.

Ok, help out a totally clueless one here. I have a 2010 Ram 2500 4x4 and would like to put larger than stock tires on it. I have no problem doing new wheels also, but where or how do I find out what size and the "offset" you are talking about? I have no problem buying the tires & wheels, I just can't make it a science experiment and keep trying a different set until I get it right, so I would appreciate any legitimate information anyone can give me.

No offense to anyone, I'm looking for information of what has actually worked, I have in the past received a lot of information of what someone thinks should work. I can't afford to do trial & error method.

Thanks for any assistance & Happy Thanksgiving !

Just a guess here-but if you are touching on the outside of your tire when fully locked-more backspace will only make the problem worse.

ya but its the outside edge so by putting back spaces on i think it will push the tire out far engough that the tire will be past the point that it is rubbing i hope... it makes sence im my head lol dont have any clue if it will work

do you have a picture you could take of your situation?

pushing your tires out will cause the swing radius of your rubber to increase-generally it makes the condition worse.

Usually a wider rim or not enough backspacing will get you rub from the outside edge of the tire to the rear of your wheel well.
You can run 35s on a 2500 ,usually, with stock rims and mild rubbing.
Put wider rims [I was running 16.5x 9.75 wide or 15 x 10] into the mix and 33s will rub like a 35 will on stock rims.
I have had this happen on '85- '01 W-250, W-350 and 2500s
Adding wheel spacer will most likley make it worse.

Yes i am running wider tires i had to when i jumped up to the 35's they wouldent fit on the stock rims. But now wheel spacers would gibe me more back spaceing right or are you saying i need to go in the other direction and moove the tires closer to the center of the truck instead of pushing them out?

i think you need less backspacing-ie-moving the tires closer towards the centerline of the truck.

we need some info:
what rims?
what tires?
what year of truck?
