Definitely hack away at it. I cut out my front fender liners but the rear tires are still really close to scraping. A couple of weeks ago on the freeway, my right rear tire took the side skirt cause it's so close. :mad:

My guess as to being so close would be a) box is lowered
b) 205/55 whatever tire
and c) offset of rim
Mine used to be close to rubbing with 205/50/16's after I lowered it with my 42 mm off sets.

You might as well trim it or remove it all together because it will just continue to get worse.

Be sure to post more pics Johnny when you do. That just seems weird that you would get that much rubbing with that setup. You only went up in wheel diameter 1", and a 55 series doesn't seem that tall, plus you're not dropped.
