    the backing plates are what take the most grinding with 10 bolts, best thing to do is paint it let dry and put the tire on, once its hit everything its going to grind those areas down untill it dont hit nothing

    He just told you, paint the backing plate then put the wheel on. It will scratch the new paint and then, that's where you grind. I had my axle on the bench so I just put the wheel up there, marked the spots where it would hit and went from there.

    Really..Just paint the top of the backing plate, should have to just do the top..put the rim on as far as it will go spin it to rub off some paint the grind (or use a BFH) and grind or beat it down some...But grinding is best...Might have to grind the some of the caliper also...The paint trick will tell
    Use a color like white so you can see the dark rub spots...
