I can't believe it's rubbing with that combo :think: Did you just install the keys without cranking? Maybe you can give them 3-4 turns each and get that clearance.

All my buddies ran that setup in Highschool with mud tires and never had issues so they probably only rub cuz the all terrains are a little wider, can't be rubbing to much. Maybe take a buffing wheel to the frame and remove all the coating and see if it still rubs.

Crankin the keys will pull the tires in more and rub the frame more. op needs spacers or lower Offset wheels

He's rubbin frame bc hes running stock wheels.

stated above buddy of mine had a 95 with 315/75/r16s and ran 16x10s, when we lifted his truck with the 3 inch body lift he ran the 315s on stock rims and they never rubbed, and his was a 1995 gmc sierra 1500 ext cab z-71

Dude ur not gonna rub frame With a x10 the tire will be pushed out further. No truck is the same. Regardless if ur friend rubs or not the op needs wheel spacers or a lower offset wheel

Agreed..the stock wheels will rub frame worse than any x8 or x10. The cranked torsion bars (keys) are prob the issue, take out your keys, on stock wheels you can stuff 315's with a 3" body lift without keys or cranked torsion bars on a 88-98 body style.

I thought you could clear bigger tires on stock wheels and aftermarket (especially wider that stock) wheels cause the rubbing to be worse? Make a no sensa.
