Tire rubbing rear fender liner

I know this is probably a common problem with people running larger/wider wheel/tire fitments. How do you take care of the problem of the rear tires rubbing on the rear fender liner?

The tire is hitting the fender liner where the rear bumper and the rear quarter panel meet. The fender liner sticks out to cover the ledge/bolt that holds the bumper corner to the quarter panel. I can imagine shaving the fender liner will get rid of some rubbing but will the tire then contact the ledge/bolt behind the liner?

Here is a pic for reference. This is not my car but it is the same problem.
