Scotty, be careful. If the tires do continue to rub, and they most certainly will, they may eventually snag on the liner. I've lost two (liners) that way. I'd hate to see you shred a tire on the aluminum; also, I'd be concerned about how the metal changes the dynamic of the way the liner eventually goes away. Could create an unintended missile inside the clam.
Sorry, not trying to be the voice of doom here. Kudos on your ingenuity.
