I dont have a lift on y jeep, but i do plan on reducing the wheel size slightly once I get the cash to do it. The rims are 15's so its just a matter of fresh rubber. But i understand your concern, I'm a very careful driver when it comes to turning at high speeds, I learnt that the hard way when I first passed my test! The fix is good for now as I cant stand the rubbing noise, but it is only temporary.

kjeeper10 Im not going to go out a buy new rims because of a little rub with 31's. I've had this fix for 7 yrs with stockers, no problems

95YamJam I just welded a bolt head to mine. Mine were spot welded in and really rusty. I added about 3/8" to mine.

I have 32" tires and have tons of clearance now. I did not notice any difference in turning radius at all.

newbie needs help on Tire rubbing?!?

i was taking a tight turn today to back up and the tire was catching to something underneath, i was wondering if my tires might be the wrong ones or if the 2 and 1/2 inch lift is an issue

my tires are GoodYear wrangler rt/s
31x10.50R-15LT.

is this a common issue?

thanks
