I just got general grabber at2 mounted on aev pintlers(25 mm offset).I wanted the duratracs bad,but due to a injury I have been off work for 2 months and have to watch what I spend.I have only driven a few miles due to rubbing in the pinchweld area.I pounded the pinchweld down and remolded the wheel well with a heat gun.It is still rubbing.I dont think I can remold the wheel well enough so the tire will clear.I might have to bite the bullet and cut the well out were it rubs.I really didnt want to do that.heres a few pics.There not the greatest.

What size are the tires? I thought quite a few people were running that setup so it should be manageable. Even with my setup only passenger side rubs after modding pinch weld and heat gunnin wheel well. Havent made any cuts.

And I really like those wheels on your silver Commander. Really nice match.

I am running 265/70/17.I also have the RR lift.I spent sometime heating and forming the wheel well,but it still rubs.I got rained out yesterday.I will mess with it today.I hope I have better results.I really dont want to cut it out,cause the tpms module will take a direct hit with water.

Thats weird. I dont understand how you would still have rubbing after bending over the pinch weld and remolding the inner fender. Did you do it right? Those wheels are the perfect offset and width for lifted XK's.

Where exactly is this TPMS module you are refering to? I have never seen or heard of one being in the wheel well area.

Yesterday the weather was better,so I made another attempt to fix the rubbing issue.After a little more time forming the fender well,I have no rubbing.I am happy with the results.Thanks for your help.
