Rolling fenders/felt material in the rear wheel arch area

vague title I know sorry, I had my fenders rolled in the rear and noticed that there is that felt-like/cloth-like material in the rear in the wheel well area, does anyone know if it's ok to remove that? or if there's a way to tuck it further up?

thanks

That is your fender liner. If you want to reduce rubbing any further, I recommend getting a pull or possibly working with the liner (cutting it).

thanks for correcting my terminology lol, how would cutting it work? is it more of shop job or DIY? seems pretty simple but I don't want to mess anything up

most people try and tuck it and get it pinched into the roll so it stays tucked up, razor blade will do the trick.
if your not getting any squeal or rubbing sound from it, id suggest keeping it

My fender liner is cut like this. If you know how to use scissors you can cut it your self. Just remove it from the car. You could possibly use chalk to mark where to cut, when it's still on the car.

Ignorrant question...why would you want to cut it? I assume to access something on the other side...what? Also, is there no way to uninstall / reinstall instead of cutting?

for me personally it's to run a more aggressive wheel setup

Same here. I had to cut it away since tyre was burning the fender liner, so eventually there would have been hole anyway.

You can remove it completely, but behind there is some electric box and wires.

If the rubbing noise bugs you can you just cut the obstruction away if not just the let the tire rub it away in due time.

I'm on 245/35/18's and was thinking about going a little wider. Do you have any close up pics? I rubbed at the bumper/fender tab even after rolling and pulling.

My setup rubs that same place. I will be cutting piece out from that bumper/fender bracket. Here is some pictures.
