I just got 285/60r18 tires and rims for my pro4x 12 was seeing if by doing a certain lift kit height would prevent the rubbing or do I have to mod even with a lift kit

You could most likely get away with doing a spacer kit or a body lift. Depending on your intended use for the vehicle

Some members here a while ago ran 285s without any lift, they just heated the inner fenders and remolded them. Search the mold mod. Ditch your front valence as well, you will probably rub it with 285s lifted or not.

I think forum member Raine has the best postings about fender well mods in his build thread. But, step one is to yank the front air dam. At least the outer sections of.


This. I've got 265 but with my 1.5" wheel spacers I had to trim. I followed Raine's write up and it worked like a charm. Still looks stock too with mud flaps and all. Wouldn't notice unless you knew it.

With stock wheels the melt mod would likely have been fine, but your wheel offset appears to push them out so it is likely you will need to trim.

A spacer lift will not change the rub. A 2" body lift will most likely take care of it. Or a 5" bracket lift will too. Or if you are 2wd a CST spindle lift will cure the rub.

Do you have cam bolts in your lower control arm pivots. Are they adjusted for MAX caster (wheel forward). That should help the rub significantly. Need to also remove the front air dam.

I havent done anything to the truck yet it's Stock I only rub on the back part of fender not the front mine is 4wd and my offset on my rims are also at (0) I have a pro 4x so there's a difference between body lift and level kit I saw the ready lift kit that gave you 2.5 in front 1.5 in back or I was looking at prg kits

Those are suspension lifts. Will still rub.

It's the wheel offset causing problems, your aftermarket wheels are 0 but the OEM wheels are +30.
