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
