Alot of people are bending the metal bar behind the tires to stop the rubbing. I know personally of 3 people that have also heated up the plastic just behind the front tires... where it curves forward and when heated, you can straighten them out. This will make the edge of the fender straight, not curved forward. What a difference 1/2 of an inch will make. They do this to the rear fender as well to stop the rubbing when hitting bumps as well. Hope that helps..
