At close to full lock, the inner lip of the rim would rub on the lower shock mount that is attached to the radius arm.

It actually was eating metal off the rims so there's a groove in the inner part of the rim.

1-1/4" adapters on front and I don't know about the back. The back doesn't rub, it just bugs me how they sit in so far.
