to cut or not to cut

im running rustys 2" spring kit. with 35x1250r15 dynapros measuring almost a true 35"

when flexing im rubbing in the front and the back but cant decide if i just should cut the fenders a bit. or if i should get some pucks to help out a bit. also running an aftermarket bumper and winch soon. my only regret with cutting is if im going on a road trip i dont wanna get any hassle from the HP.

what do yall think?

JMO- If you like the look, and you need a little clearance, then cut 'em.

If tire coverage is required in your state then I wouldn't do it, but if you're traveling out of state, they are usually pretty cool about letting you go without a ticket.

It's easy to say when it's someone else's rig, but since you asked..., I'd say "CUT".

Re: Highway Patrol... There are some things in life that I'm not going to lose sleep over. A few of which are tinted windows, no mud flaps (req'd in some states), thinner fenders, etc. If an HP pulls me over for my Narrow Width River Raider Tube Fenders, I'll either reason with him/her, or crawl over their patrol car, rendering any pursuit attempt useless.

A lot of chit coming...
