Anyone have and easy fix for cutting this corner off...

Should the "corner" even be a concern as far as cutting my rear tire. Should I just cut the corner and spray some paint on it? Thanks in advance for and advice or directing me to the solution. Maybe rock rails would protect it...don't know

Thanks

I used my dremel + spraypaint, and only trimmed my pinch weld back about an inch or so at a 45 degree angle. At full stuff, it was still rubbing a little on my tires.
A buddy of mine cut his waaaaay back, filled the hole with JB Weld, and painted. Looked good.

But ya, I'd do something about it if you're running larger tires.

I used a grinder and a cutting wheel, then filled the small void with some caulking or foam, and painted it.
