That's what I was wondering too. I'm not sure I understand the mechanics behind it all. If I already have the 3" and 33" tires with no rub, why would it rub simply by pushing them out 1.25"?
What you can end up with is them rubbing the fender liner at the pinch weld of the body, not the body mount. I ended up removing my fender liners and my fender flares because of rubbing, but 90% of that was when the suspension was articulated in a way that you had body lean, etc.

This is what I have, though this is not a pic of my vehicle.
I loved my Hankook MTs when I had them on my 2004 Tacoma. However, I couldn't get them to fit no matter how much firewall modding I did (the cab mount was underneath the clutch).

On all of the new 4Runners, FJC and Tacomas, if you can squeeze a little more caster out of your spindles/UCAs, you might be able to clear.

Getting back to your original thought, You probably will hit the body mount at full lock. If you have a fab shop or a very will respected mechanics shop, they may be able to do the BMC for you for a reasonable cost.

Thanks for the info. I think I'll just leave it be. I was just curious about them and thought they might have been an easy addition.
