R&B looks well with them on pal, a bit of grinding and a bit of welding.....

It looks quite easy to triangulate / support the mount and allow you to cut away the projection, what an MOT inspector will say I don't know.... I can cut and prep the plates but can't weld anymore. Local garage will weld it for £80 if needed, they are testers too so I can have a word about welding around the mount, again if needed.

I put a ratchet strap around the body mount's two sections and squeezed them together a bit (maybe 1" all together).

Also installed some sexy rockwatt extended bump stops, which seemed to help just as much with the same problem.

What size are they? look great on the GV rims :-)

so thats a 29.3" tall by 8.9" wide tyre then, compared to the 31x10.5 i have, i am surprised you have a problem with them catching.
Different rims, offset and lift maybe? for reference my rims are 15x8 et -0, theres 30mm wheel spacers and 4.5" lift on the springs

That will explain it then! I too have 3" castor arms, which will be pulled back by inference then
