Thats interesting considering the stock tire is a 33.. and there are countless guys on here running 34.5’s..

What’s your setup? What tires, Wheels, spacers, 4x4, fx4, max tow?

Did you change rims as well? What is the offset? You not only got taler, you got 2 inches wider. Probably not the height that is causing the rub, it may be the additional width.

Apologies. The stock 20 inch rim comes with 33’s.

Your problem is the spacers not the tires! ?

Sounds like an offset issue to me, is this stock wheel or aftermarket wheel?

315 vs 275 are 1 1/2” wider than stock and you have 2” spacers. Level kit won’t accomplish what your looking for. Have you tried your set up without the spacers?
yep i added the spacers in after i removed the mud flaps now it is just barley clearing so should be ok it was just hard to.find tires as coved has back logged everything

Lift and diameter don’t seem to be your issue since people are running bigger sized without rubbing at all. Even raptor 35 inch tires with the +34 offset raptor wheels fit on these 21s stock without rub. Running a 315 tire may be too wide for the stock f150 wheel with +44 offset and you’ll probably rub on the inside but maybe a 2inch spacer is too aggressive and now you rub against the crash bars when making turns. You’ll probably just need to run a smaller spacer and you should be good to go. Find the balance where it’s just enough to not rub on the inside but not big enough that it pushes the wheel out too much where now you rub on the outside.
