Default Officially rubbed through my fender liners

So I was just browsing old threads and came across one that was for rubbed through/cut up fender liners so I decided to check mine out. My front liners towards the outside edge (near the fender bolt) is rubbed through. I have 19x8.5 225/35 V12's in front and can hear the rubbing on full lock turns. Any suggestions for me when I decide to go lower on coils and throw on 5mm maybe 10mm spacers?

You can roll your front fenders and pull them too.

I'm planning on rolling all four fenders and heating the fender liners. What exactly is done when the fenders are "pulled"? Does it widen the fender by bending the metal outwards?

just cut the fender liner and while your at it trim your bumper tab cause if you go lower that will hit too.

I'm having the same problem. I had to raise my car back up today because it was rubbing so bad. Like if I make a sharp right turn, The inner part of the left tire would rub on the fender tab. And vice versa when I take a sharp left turn. Also every time the springs compress, my front fenders on the driver side would shred my tire because its rubbing against a flat silver metal piece. This only happen on the driver side front fender. It would rub against the bolt holding the front fender together.

the fender is sealed from the engine if you have an intake you would see that only the fog light area catches it

I never knew this. Thanks for enlighten me on the subject. I may just have to take the fender liner out soon.

Can someone tell me if you can use those tire patches and glue to over holes (about 1 inch in diameter) in your fender liner?

Such as this one.

Looking for some why to seal a few holes at the top of the liner due to tire rubbing during extreme hard cornering.

Thanks.

^If you currently rubbing through the liner, why would you want to patch the hole? It'll start rubbing through the patch as well! We all do it...just live with ridin low and holey liners.

Full lock rubbing is at the REAR (closest to firewall).... It's that little square bit that sticks out. Ill get a picture later.

Edit: Taken on drivers side. Front of car to the left. You can see where I rub on full lock.

I kinda heated the liners and tucked it behind the fender tab, bent it up and shaved the metal bracket down some. I still hear some rubbing when someone over 200lbs is in my passenger seat or when Im cornering at some excessive speeds.
