Newbie..Tire rubbing issues.

I have 31's with what I think is a 3' body lift. When I fully turn my wheels they rub. What is the best way of fixing this issue?

sounds like the tires might be rubbing on the sway bar. Either get wheel spacers or get wheels with less offset. Any wheel with more than 4 inch offset is too much. I have wheels with over 4 inch offset and 31's and I get rubbing too.

trash the body lift while you're at it.

31's fit under stock.
