    bumper trimming for bigger tires?

    Just bought 02 chevy 4x4 and put bigger tires on and they rub bumper bad ams rip off lower valance. .. was curious as to if any of yal have trimmed the front bumper and how you did it. I mean I could just cut a chunk out but I want it to look as close to factory as I can. Any pics or info? Thanks

    Just cut what you need to cut off and round the rest or buy an aftermarket bumper.

    We did it on my dads 03 with a sawzall lol. Cant see it unless youre looking for it. We trimmed the lowest edge of the chrome bumper and into the lower valance to fit 305/50/16s with 3" spindle lift. We could have gotten away with the lower valance.

    What is the wheel size you are using and offset?

    285/75/16 on stock wheel should not rub.
