Wheels rubbing

Hi guys
So i decided to fit a new set of rims on my 2014 4x4 FT
Went with the 18" Black rhino and 265/65/18 tyres ( i know not the most ideal setup for off road)
The vehicle has a 50mm lift , on full turn the front wheels are rubbing
What are my options to fix the issue?

Rubbing on front bumper or mudflap?
If only rubbing one of the two you can redo the wheel alignment to either move the front wheels forward or backward.

True, wheel alignment can adjust the wheel forward or backward. If its catching both sides, you might neeed to remove the mud flap

Just an update, i had the alignment guys move the wheels a bit back , this resulted in them touching the mud flaps
I've since removed the mud flaps and alls good no touching back or front

So after using the tyres for a bit I noticed the outside wearing a bit faster
Took it back to the alignment shop and was told that when the moved the wheels back the camber had to be sacrificed a bit and therefor about 1 degree off
so back to the drawing board on this one...

about 1500 so not much at all, the thread on the corner of the KO2 in the front is way more warn out than the rear tho
and specifically on the outside.
I will have to trim the inside of the fender as this seems to be the best option

You will need to do some panelbeating...its not nice, but the only way to clear the wheel. Even need to cut a part of the chassis's body mount bracket and weld it up again... will take fotos and send to you

Gees this sounds very extreme, exactly what i didn't want to hear.
i think it might be better to just fit the original 17s now
