Modifying front/Rear fenders for rubbing issues (pics)

Figured I would post this up, may save rim damage for somone....I fitted 285/25/20 with a 10MM spacer...looked to be fine, hit a larger than normal bump and my rim got scratched all the way arpoundthe top lip.....yeah I was pretty damn pissed! So I strated looking under there and found a well know spot for rubbing...cut it out...still slightly rubbed with rolled fenders. I didnt want to cut the inner fenders out but shape them to make the more square to add preacious space I needed. I took a dremel ginded on the inder fender to make metal thinner and with the added heat (check outside paint to be sure it does not get hot...mine never did) I was able to hit the inner lip with ease and bend it until it touched the inside fender (flush) and this did the trick. I aslo cut the bolt out in the front fenders.

This may be well know but thought some pics could help somnone.

Rear fenders:








Front fenders:

this is perfect, I was just scouring the forum for a better explanation on what needed to be done yesterday and then you drop this in my lap.
On the front you did not have to relocate the attaching screws? Just cut off the access plastic?

I had to relocate them back because I cut the actual metal part they attached to...same metal to be cut as plastic. basically the end screw mounting place was cut out and the raer stayed....so I moved the front mounting location down.
