help slammed my chevy now tires rub

hi I need help i have a 00 chevy silverado shorty 2wd and i just installed a 4/6 belltech drop and 20 inch wheels and tires but when i hit a bump the front tires hit the metal inner fender on the front vilantly bad, bad enough that it is too dangerous for the free way, i am running 275/45/20's and have seen many trucks with this drop and these tires but cannot figure out why mine rub on bumps and corners, i cannot afford lower profile tires since the lower profile the more the $ plus i like the look of a nice fat tire , i have removed the plastic screw on inner fender but that did no good, thanks for any advice in advance thanks

If it's hitting the outer, I would roll the lip up to make a little more clearance, and that's about all you can do unless you highly modify the fender. If it's the inner, you can either take it out and pound on it till it comes out a little more, or you can take it out completly. Either way, this could have been taken care of with some back spacing and some research. You may have to invest in some smaller tires if these don't cure your problems.
