Tires rubbing against LCA Sign In

Hi all I have a 2000 Dodge Ram 1500 5.2l v8 it has plus 1 size tires on it and has had those since we bought the truck. In the last few thousand miles I've noticed that the front 2 tires have been rubbing against the lower control arm and it's never done that before. It only seems to be when I'm turning and even then it's not "too" bad; I say that cause I'm still worried about them popping but again I don't see any signs of belts showing. Anyone have any ideas what could be causing the rubbing? I don't want to spend good money in 2 new tires and an alignment only to have them rubbing too! Thanks!

Have you inspected the front end for worn out suspension components? If not that would be a good place to start. If your wheel back spacing is too positive that will bring the wheel in closer to the control arms. Maybe you should have it checked out.
