Cutting tires

I'm running stock suspension on my 04 and 285/45/18 on the back and I noticed this afternoon that the outer top/edge of my tires are almost being sliced.. I hear it rub a little when I hit a bump what is the best solution

I didn't think that 285's would be a problem.
How are your rear shocks?
I suppose you could roll the fenders...

285/45 is too big for 04 GT
285/35 18 is perfect size

I have 285/45 18 on 09 GT500 they are really big

285/45-18 is completely fine, but being taller than 28" the fenders will need to be rolled.

Could I possibly put spacers to make the rear end a little higher

There are isolators, they will raise you up about 1/4 inch. I would just roll your fenders though.

Honestly check around locally. There is this guy local to me who does a ton of cars and does great work. He comes to your place and does it. He charges like $150 for all 4 fenders.

Not on stock suspesnion. A polyurethane isolator might help but really he just needs a tire with a smaller sidewall

I should have quoted the isolator part, I agree on rolling the fenders, but my previous post was more directed towards raising the rear up
