Passenger side front tire hitting wheel well liner

What would cause wheel to contact rear side of wheel well? I have 275 70r 18e tires. Door panel sticker calls for 265 70r 18e tires. Stock height. No mods to suspension. Lifted tire on ground checked for movement, none. Is there a way to check upper control arms. Also this is only on pass. Side. Thanks in advance.

Ment to say upper control arm bushings.

did you just replace you're tire's? if so they are .5 of an inch wider then 265's. That is what's causing it to rub. crank you're keys a little and it shouldn't rub anymore.

Yes I did just change tires. I had 285's on and dropped to 275's. So if I crank the keys a little does that raise height so front will be more level with rear?

It will but it does not take much to change your wheel alignment. Being you just purchased new tires if you do turn your keys up a bit you might look at having the alignment checked again. Dean

As Dean said you should get you're alignment checked once you crank them. But turning up the stock keys will make it more level with the rear.
