Ted what i have is blackrock lobos 16x8 BS of 5inch and i have on 255/70/16 I get rub at full choke everyday ridding seems fine. So either i lift or i get a tad of smaller tires. Tires is cheaper cause Discount will help me out. Lift is going to cost me alot it sounds like. And changing the rims is not an option no returns they are one. Me going to a 245 might be the answer i guess?

As a last resort, you could try wheel spacers. Are they rubbing on the inside, especially I reverse? Tom's correct, if you're running 8" wheels, 5" of backspace is too much. It causes the inside of the tire to touch stuff when you turn.

But you bought the wrong size, going to smaller tires is not good since then the wheels will be too wide for the tires . Installing smaller tires on an 8 inch wheel spreads the beads too far apart unless you are going to a 60 or 65 series very low profile
going to a say 245-70 on those rims is asking for more problems

Yeah the rub on the inside at full choke.... Tom I agree with ya what pisses me off I was told this would work. I cant return the rims so I eat over 400 dollars. I can exchange the tires so that is why looking that route. Thank again

Variables come into play when installing any aftermarket tire/wheel combo
Then you add in some folks who haven't a clue telling you they will work because their Uncles, cousins boyfriend ex father in laws girlfriends installed the same size wheels on a CJ back in 79 so sure they should work

While I don't like wheel spacers, it looks like that's your only hope at MAYBE fixing the problem. If you go that way, make sure they're hub centric with your bolt pattern not universal.
If you're having the same problem as I was, the inside corner of your tire is picking up the plastic inner fender at the front and making all kinds of noise. You could tie the inner plastic shield with zip ties and pull it away from your tires, or you could let it rub, eventually the tires will wear the plastic away. You could even trim the plastic away. Otherwise, you need to replace your rims.
