Largest tire you can fit on a BB is 31". You bought 32". Gotta trim.

Yep, should have got 245/75/r16s instead. You can trim your front bumper like I did and it should work alright as long as you don't wheel it too hard.

Even with my new 3.5" lift my 265 75 16s rubbed a bit on the front fascia. Trimming solved the problem. I used a hacksaw, then sandpaper and it looks fine.

I'm also getting a bit of rubbing on my LCA at full steering lock. From what I've heard, that's common too, and the only fix is new wheels that move the tire outboard or wheel spacers. Or limiting the steering, of course.
