    Hey guys. I put in the new tires last week and have some rubbing issues. Anybody have a dremmel, grinder, or some other tool to help me do some trimming? I'm over in the Tempe area.

    if its just on the black liner in the front fenders, that stuff can be cut easily with a razor. If you need to cut the fender flare or the cab mount, a grinder is definitely your friend.

    Yea if you're just cutting the black plastic even a decent pair of scissors work, though not ideal. I have both a grinder and dremel though. Harbor Freight's got some cheap tools that work just fine :D

    instead of cutting you might tie back the flares with some lock ties - this way it looks cleaner and you keep the coverage/protection (its what i did)
