Did you have to bend the pinch weld in the wheel well over with a mallet or did you just leave it?
No. When i was talking about grinding the caliper I was referring to the correct wheel, not tire. Make sure the wheel fits. Some wheels have identations on the inside that rub the lower caliper bracket. You can see where it rubbed on my wheel.
As for the grinding the lower caliper bracket so it doesnt rub, I meant this:
All im saying is, make sure the wheel fits before you buy it. Physically put it on your truck and spin it. Backspacing will not cause this, its the design of the wheel.
As for the pinch weld, I think you might be talking about where i circled yellow.. I was just indicating thats where the plastic was cut out. If you are talking about the black box mod pinch weld, you dont have to mess with that either. You shouldnt have to hit anything inside the wheel well with a mallet
