New lift tire rub
First time poster. New 6" spindle lift installed with 22x11x10 desert duos on 10" aluminum rims. Turns to the right without a problem to the left the tire rubs the frame. Is there something I could do to solve this? :|







Thanks for any help you could provide.

Welcome to BGW. I wish I could help, hopefully someone here can, I am curious myself why this is happening

Re: New lift tire rub

are the tires parallel with each other? maybe it's just an optical illusion.

Re: New lift tire rub
kinda looks like the camber may be out of adjustment??

Re: New lift tire rub
i have the same lift & tire set up and mine does the samething but only when it's turn all the way left or right.

Re: New lift tire rub

Re: New lift tire rub
you need a 2 inch spacer plate. here are a couple pictures of my 98. it has 22 11 10 tires with a 6 inch lift. pics are clearance before and after the plate addition.

plate can be found here http://store.bigbuggies.com/c2sep.html

Re: New lift tire rub
Hi, We see this all the time. Use spacers, as suggested.
It's the wheel offset causing the problem. We often use a wider steel
wheel, with a different offset, and have no problem.
Cart looks good. Good luck.

Re: New lift tire rub
Don't know the offset. How could I measure this. Also fixed the camber "I think".

Re: New lift tire rub
I have the same rubbing issues because of the offset, will wheel spacers help with this? Also, with the extension spacer what else needs to be modified, ie: steering, lift? If you're moving the wheels more toward the front won't you have to lengthen something else?:shock:
