rubbing issues... how to solve?

Hey guys

Just put my spacers on so here's the specs

18x8 +55 oem 8th gen wheels
225/40/18 kumho
h%r 20mm spacer

I got my fenders rolled which isn't the problem but it's where the rear bumper meets the body

like this.... this is a coupe but im sure the sedan is very similar. these pics are AFTER i shaved everything off. its very easy really.

pull the wheel off.
drill a small hole as far back as you can (the bit HAS to be just barely smaller than the screw so that teh screw has something to grab otherwise its not going to hold securely.
then once the screw is relocated further back, take a grinder or good dremel and cut away everything infront of the screw like in my pics.





you probably wont need to get as aggressive as i did with the cutting but just play it by ear, literally... cut what you think is enough then test it out for a day or two, if it needs more work, keep cutting.

my wheels and tires stick out much more than yours so i had to cut a good chunk of my bumper material off too as you can see, the bumpers edge is supposed to about 1inch wide, as you can see from my pics, its now less than 1/4 inch. there is also metal behind the bumpers edge that ended up being an issue for me as well so i took a cut off wheel and cut the metal off too.

another tip, which i know sounds stupid but trust me it helps.

get some lipstick your GF/wife/mom has laying around and doesnt use, or go buy a red wax pen and apply it all over the bumper tab and bumper edge, then go drive around hard on bumpy roads, pretty much the worst conditions your car will see so you can see how much rubbing COULD be possible. and make sure your gas tank is full. and weight down the trunk with random stuff or have 3 people sit in the back seats. then check again and see which areas rubbed away and cut about 1/8 in more than that and you should be good.

same thing goes for you. roll the fenders then relocate the bumper screw and grind away the useless stuff.
