Tires to fit the flares

Ordered a set of 17x11 ( 5.25" backspace ) American Racing Torque Thrust II wheels to fit the 315/35x17 Nitto 555 tires. Stance looks great but is a smidge too wide for the flare with passengers riding in the back seat. I have 3/4" room inside so I may look at getting someone to shave 1/2" off the wheel mounting surface if enough is available, or if not, I'll just trim 1/4" from the flare lip.
