And maybe use "passenger side" & "drivers side", instead of "left"...

Just trim a little bit at a time. And then be sure to cut the wheel all the way to both sides while slowly driving, also do the same in reverse cause I found out that even though they didnt rub while turning sharply going forward, they did slightly rub when turning the wheel in reverse.
