    Default Need advice! New tires rubbing.

    Got a 08 crew cab silverado with factory 20" rims and a 1-1/2" leveling kit. Bought some 305/55/20 nitto terra grapplers and i'm having a little rubbing issue. Should I do a 3" lift, buy rims with a different offset? What will work. I don't want to beat my fender well in. Also would some type of spacers work? Let me know what you all have run into previously.

    Thanks!

    where are the tires rubbing? you may want to try a set of 1.5" wheel spacers for cheap. they will push the stock wheels out and should stop the rubbing and will run anywhere from 100-200 bucks. if you wanna go a more expensive route than get a new set of wheels with a 4-4.5" backspacing to push the tires out more.

    It's rubbing center back fender flap. It's mainly in reverse though. I can turn 90% forward and maybe 40% in reverse before it rubs. If I do get rims this should fix the problem? Don't really want to void warranty yet with suspension lift.
