Does anybody know if it would be ok to bend the flat pieces that meet on the covers for the wheels? I have no idea what they are called. The wheel covers inside the cargo portion of the van meet, outside and inside sections, and have a 1+ inch irregular flat flange type area where they come together. The two pieces don't appear to be attached in any way and I could use that extra space if they could bent over. Undoubtedly this will not be my only bizarre question.
