Just bought some 25mm wheels spacer. Fitted them on the rear and rolled and pumped my guards a little but the wheels still constantly scrub (even with the tiniest acceleration) on the flat edges that can't be rolled where the metal meets the plastic bumper and near the door as well. I've herd some people say to trim the guards but don't really how to go about it, do I just cut a little slit in it and fold it back and what? Any help would be muchly appreciated!

You'll need to get in there with a grinder and cut away that piece and also part if the plastic bar mount. And depending in what size rim and spring height you have, you may need to remove a section of the bar lip and plastic liner as well.
