    Default trimming for larger tires

    What should I use to trim the front fender so my tires don't rub? It's an 07 Sierra Classic. I know the bumper is plastic but I obviously don't want to f it up. The tires only rub occassionally when I turn one way but it's pretty annoying.

    thanks

    I used a cut-off wheel and then sprayed some undercoating on that surface.

    It's a abrasive wheel that attaches to a die grinder, there flat and round. Most automotive stores have them. Wear eye protection. I turned my front tires till they hit the fender, marked with a sharpie, removed the tires and cut. Takes about a hour for both.
