    Did you put metal putty in the place where you cut the pinch seam?

    I used Spray-On Bed liner.
    I have heard where others have used Seam Sealer.
    You can pick up Seam Sealer or the Spray-On Bed Liner from the local parts store.

    I went with the hillbilly method. I happened to be caulking the bathroom so I put some of that to patch the gap then spray painted it white. it’s behind the fenderliner anyways.. plus I’m sure I’ll be back in there to cut some more when I start flexing on the trails. newborn is barely a month old, we’ll be out riding in the next few months

    235/70R17 is a 30 inch tire.
    I am wearing 245/65R17 which is a 29.5 inch tire on 17X7.5 w/30mm offset.
    I have a Trailhawk with 4 inch lift, 1.5 inch spacers in the front, and the pinch weld modification.

    I can get the front tire to rub slightly when at 3/4 lock and hitting a bump (speed bump, entering a driveway, rut etc.).
