where is it scrubbing
if it is scrubbing on top not much u can do
if it is scrubing on the outside of the tyre and guard u can roll or lip the guards to flare m out . i used a pole n rolled it in between the tyre and the guard but must be done carfully

not the end of the world.

Just roll the guards. Mine did the same in my old EA with 17's and superlow front. Hammered the lip in gratually and problem solved.
