Ok, good to know. The person I bought these from is also a vendor on these forums, and claimed they weren't rubbing at all.

edit: Even then, my 255/35 rub a tiny bit on the fender liners. As soon as the tires wear down a bit, it stops.
I might have to step down to a 255 then up front.

That doesn't really make sense. They are rubbing on the inside, so bringing them closer to the fender liner wont help.

Part of the purpose of my going square is to be able to rotate front to back. Spacers give it a good look, and a little extra track width.

So everyone is pretty certain that it is contacting the upper inside fender liner? I just wanted to make sure it wasn't hitting anything serious.

So putting springs on will likely only make the problem worse...
