longbow if you dont mind to throw those pics up where you trimmed the flare that would be great. I still have some rub somehow and was curious how far you trimmed the flares.

thanks

yea I dremeled it before. Mine almost looks trimmed that much. It is just bugging me that I havent gotten it all to go away. but I also think I am still rubbing on the body mounts mostly but only when flexed, flying into a parking lot or something like it. But every once in a while it still sounds like plastic rub.

thx for the pics

yep its only in a certain spot under lots of flex. I think I have it calculated in my head that a 17/18 by 8/8.5 wheel with minimal negative offset and in between 4.5"/5" backspacing will solve this problem,.........maybe.

The wheels I want to try this thought process with are the American Racing Thugs (17x8.5 -6mm offset and 4.53 BS) I dono well see when my money tree grows.
