Hey!

Recently lifted my 14’ XV Crosstrek by 2”, and installed 15” methods on 215/75/R15 wildpeaks. The method wheels give me a -15 offset.

I’m getting some serious rub during drive (not just reverse). I already started trimming the inner wheel well liners but I’ve noticed the tires are also hitting the front & back body pieces.

Going out to buy a heat gun & dremel today. I’m curious if anyone else came across this issue & what you did to remedy it.

Photos to show the problem area’s:

11113


The back of the well isn’t as much of a problem as the front.

My 19 doesn’t rub bc they increased the wheel well size. I would go the route you are going with dremmel or a multi tool 🤷‍♂️🤙🏻

I'm curious to know how things turn out. I have a 2016 with 2" lift but after some research I went falken wild peak A/T although I have no rubbing w/aftermarket mud flaps
11114
I'm wondering if I change out my stock rims will it rub.
