So my truck has Hancook 275 55 20s, like Im guessing everyone else (Platinum\Limited) has\had. When I turn sharp into a parking spot or driveway or whatever, my tires rub. Anyone else have this prob? Stock tires shouldnt do this. Havent crawled underneath yet to see where its rubbing or if the part can be adjusted away from the tire.

Rubbing what? Are they inflated properly? Something may be out of place. With a level you can put 35s w/ out issue, the sub 33" factory shouldn't be close to touching anything.

I agree. Tires are on target with inflation. I'll crawl underneath tmrw and see what's rubbin'. Rims look stock for Plats, so I don't think it's an offset issue...
I'll update tmrw

There has been a fair amount of people who have had rubbing from the inner fender 'loose' flap, that covers the top of the shock, control arm swing area. It's a rubber-like piece, and if slightly deformed, can be bent outward toward the tire. You can bend it back, if you heat it up with a hair dryer/heat gun it will relax and go back to it's normal state.

So the inner wheel well liner has a push type retainer that doesn't appear to have a female hole anywhere so I guess they just left it hang.
Mustang is up on rack for winter storage so I will look closer and tap a hole or something later.

Stock wheels and Wrangler tires. It's not consistent, usually when it's cold. I get rub when going in reverse at full lock to the right. I suspected it was the fender lining but hadn't gotten underneath to check. Glad to see I'm not the only one.

I think you are absolutely correct...
I get the same rub on the same turn.
It is from the pictures I have above.
Might just cut it back abit. There is no place to put that plastic rivet\clip.

My uncle is looking at this Platinum and the current owner mentioned rubbing and he suspects it's the inner fender flap. We'll take a look at it after we installed the brake pads and mud tires on the Wrangler this week. We'll see which trick would work.

It is exactly that Danny, the inner mud flap.
I was going to cut it back but instead used one of my 'spring clamps' on each flap in the problematic area for about 24hrs and the rubbing went away. May have to do again in a few months but I didn't want to cut it away permanently.
That is a viable option though

That's a better option!

Same situation with my 2022 f150 front wheel liner. Not all the clips have a hole, so it hangs and rubs. Did you decide to trim it? I’ve heard of someone folding them up.

I folded mine but they came back.
I took some clamps and folded them and then hold for about 24hrs, (when I knew I wasn't gonna drive anywhere).
Hate to cut it back as it defeats the purpose...
:(

I had mine replaced under warranty. Initially the tech just cut it, which wasn't mentioned to me. Once I saw that and brought it to their attention, a new liner was on its way pretty quickly.
