Re: Daystar Lift w/ 265/70/17
you're right in saying that it isnt completely necessary, but with the setup you will rub slightly against the wheel well liner when you are almost at full lock. I went ahead and did mine because if its rubbing the well liner a little on a wider turn on flat road, I dont wanna risk anything bad that could potentially occur if my wheel is not straight and the suspension is compressed offroad. I figured it's not a hard mod to do and better be safe than sorry. not saying something bad will happen if you don't do it, but I rather have peace of mind and full range of motion with the tires not touching anything.
Driving conditions I guess would be a factor to consider in doing the pinch weld or not. I just think you might as well do it, though.
