Strange, I have no rubbing problems with the 14" tires Mark installed at Roberts, nor the 15" I installed when living in Moab. (Went 15" so I could dump the trailer tires and go with a set of AT tires.}
Had one two many flats on those trailers tires and not from highway driving. The sidewalls split like crazy when pulling the trailer over ledges when dispersed camping around Moab. I have taken those Yokohamas down some serous road in the San Rafael Swell a few times and no problems, no flats.
Now, that's a place to go camping....if you want no want nearby. I can give you some GPS locations for some sites there that are GREAT and the sights are pretty good too.
