I have had these 31x10.5 tires on my truck for about year. All the sudden a week or two ago it seemed like the drivers side rubbed a whole lot more than it ever did before. Pulling in my driveway it rubs the inner fender. It never did this before. Anyone have a clue at to why it does this? It still drives the same.

Could possibly be that you blew your shock on that side? Maybe then it wouldn't damp as well on that side and allow a little more compression when hitting a fast bump. Just a thought. Sounds like a good excuse to break out the sawzall and make room for some 35's. <IMG SRC="smilies/biggrin.gif" border="0">

shocks are 11 years old so it is understandable if one blew. Ill try new shocks..

before you go buy new shocks, take off the shocks in question and see if they really are toast. Maybe try swapping left and right shocks and see if the problem moves to the other side? My .02. Could possibly be torsion bars i guess.

Maybe your inner fender liner has just peeled away enuf for the tire to rub whenever it is turned.
