Order of operations for tire rub

Greetings, looking for some insights on how to best approach mitigating tire rub. I put 265/75/16 on a stock e350. Full lock turns in the parking lot were fine. Turning into my driveway it made a new noise. Im assuming this is the tire rubbing somewhere when the tires were turned and the suspension compressed.

So, anybody have the 12 step plan to figuring out where Im rubbing? I didnt see anything right off when looking at it in the driveway.

Let happen a few more tire, then check for rub marks.

If you have the stock bumper, the end of the plastic trim is the first place to run. 2nd place is the sway bar. Under full compression the inner fender near the spring perch can be rubbed too.

Noted, thank you. How do you deal with sway bar rub?

I try to avoid full-lock turns. Even 1/8 turn less than full lock keeps my tires from rubbing the sway bar. Although this can vary quite a bit depending on wheel offset. Mostly I'm not worried though. The hardened steel doesn't rust, and would never really wear an appreciable amount.
