Every now and then since I got my 4/6 my front left tire has been rubbin the wheel well every now and then when a bigger dip catches me off guard. Its starting to eat through the plastic on the wheels well. How can i stop the wear. Its not rubbing hard, but i guess the tires hot and its spinning fast. Nothing major yet but I don't want anything major to come of it since the Electrical Center is sitting on that wheel well.

Nothing you can do about it unless you want to buy smaller tires. I wouldn't worry about it.
You don't think it'll eat all the way through? These are brand new tires.

Mine did it when I had my static drop, it only did it on hard bumps I learned where they were and went slower :evillol: .. when we went to put my air bags on we found some burnt plastic/rubber up in my fenderwells :anitoof:

I'm pretty sure under the plastic is a metal fenderwell, and it would eat through your tire before you eat through it :waytogo:
