This thread really does not give anyone any good information without telling us how much bumpstop front and rear. Rubbing or not rubbing is usually because of the amount of bumpstop.
Good point! I was thinking the OP was meaning steering lock to lock rubbing on a flat surface. I didn’t even consider rubbing while flexing.

35s on -15 backspacing with no lift WILL rub on full flex. Otherwise it is absolute money.

A manufacturers lift system is R&D'd with a maximum tire size and a wheel offset is usually recommended. Run a tire larger or a different wheel offset than spec'd and rubbing usually happens. Bumpstops are for limiting suspension travel of shocks and springs. Tire rubbing, not so much IMO.
