OEM Tire rims and E Brake lines

I just put bigger tires on my OEM rims, and noticed that the Drivers side Ebrake line has slight cuts in the rubber on the line, from hitting the rim it looks really close to the rim, the passenger side has much more space between it, what should I do... Just get a metal clamp and clamp around the toe arms, not sure if that is a good idea or not??

thanks, that the same issue I am having, dont know why GM left that much slack in there, the passager side is good. Good idea, I have to take the car in to get the alignment finished I will tell them about your idea.. see if they have a better one, but yours works too.. thanks...

It works good. If you just pull the slack away from the wheels it eventually creeps back to its original position. Definitely needs to be clamped as seen in the pictures in my link.

It worked out great.. thanks for the idea.. the guy put 3 on.. seems to be holding will keep an eye on it.. Wish he would have given me a little more room but its good for the OEM rims for now.. thanks again.
