I just fixed this issue on my 540. 19x11.5 rears were rubbing like crazy so i found a wood shovel handle that was about 1.75" in diameter and rolled them myself. I started out with a light anle and rolled it a couple times till it was out of the way.

I wasn't going to do it this way but I was chewing up pricey tires faster than I was saving money to ge it done by a pro. It came out fine, which was a big relief.
