Wheel rub on Chevy express with 33" tires

Just got my 2018 Chevy express 3500 converted with a three inch lift and 33" tires. I get a bit of wheel rub when I need to turn sharply, mostly on uneven ground. Rubbing on the body mount bracket (see pic). Trimming the body mount bracket should help a lot, but I am hesitant to do this. Has anyone else run into this problem? What have you done about it? Is it common to run 33" inch tires on a lifted Chevy express? or is this a common trade off for running bigger tires?

Can't tell exactly what body mount. I have 33" tires and about a 4-5" lift. The front body mount at the back of the wheel well was trimmed. Let me get a picture. Also, I installed the Weldtec Designs mini-fender because I could get contact when the wheel was turned the right angle and there was deflection of the front suspension.

Same for me. Weldtec has a video about it posted on YouTube you should check out. I trimmed mine myself with an angle grinder.
