I am running middle perch , Pro comp 9047-7936, Goodyear MTR's with Kevlar. I am still getting some rub on the inboard side of each front fender well . This is do to the rim back spacing and off set being different then stock. It only happens when suspension is working a little and I am almost at full turn . It does not rub that much or that often , however it will be enough to rip the fender flares off if I do this at speed . When I went to middle perch my alignment adjustments are maxed out on one of the adjustment points , and I do not want to get a San Diego rake going . I like it the way it is . This leaves me one choice or limited choices. I am considering cutting the inboard fender wells and could use some help if anyone has some advice . Or was wondering if anyone has done this . I searched the site and could not come up with anything. Any help would be appreciated.

When I installed my mt/r's the tire shop just used a small razor and trimmed some plastic off the inner fender, but still rubbed on full lock. Now in the middle perch and no rubbing. yet

A set of tin-snips makes it a 20 second job... no worries.

The wheels I put on mine rub while turning. I have the middle perch and am still having issues. I decided I'm going back to lower perch and I ordered daystar 2in leveling kit which should set me right between middle and top perch height. I am hoping this will help. I will exhaust all other options before I cut into this vehicle, but that is just me.
