Hey guys First day and first post here! I am tyler and with my 2008 gmc sierra i put 265 tires on her and when i crank the wheel either way the tire rubs the mud flat and makes a weird noise, 100% its rubbing the mud flap, my question is if i put a leveling kit to raise it 2 inches do you think it will give the tire clearance so it wont rub anymore?
Thanks guys!

Hey guys,
First day and first post here! I am Tyler and with my 2008 GMC Sierra. I put 265 tires on her and when I crank the wheel either way, the tire rubs on the mud flap and makes a weird noise. I am 100% sure it's rubbing the mud flap. My question is... if i put a leveling kit to raise it 2 inches, do you think it will give the tire clearance so it wont rub anymore?
Thanks guys!

Stock rims and exactly what size tires do you have, just posting 265 is not much help.

whoa...can you find me a period, comma or other punctuation mark? It's my Friday, I'm drunk, but I probably have your answer tucked away in my brain somewhere.

Ok..go back and read your original post with my correction and then all will make sense. Don't question me...I'm usually right.

LMAO I had to go re-read the original post. ......

But to your question, I think the 2" level will allow your 265's to clear no problem. I have stock 17's and 285/70/17's with mud flaps, a 2" level and no rub.

Good luck, and post some before and after pics!

Something doesn't seem right to me. 265/70r17 is a stock tire and wheel size. Shouldn't rub at all. Shouldn't need a leveling kit.
