    you can either hammer it over which is fine, but it can be a spot for water and mud to sit and cause rust, or take a few more minutes and grind it nice and smooth then hit it with some paint.

    i would rather bend it than grind it off. that seems like a bad idea to weaken the spot where your tire is most likely to slam into
