The wheel tub is wider at the back than it is in the front.

when fitting wider/max width tires in the back you will get the inside of the tire contact the front of the inner wheelhouse before it contacts the inner rear.

so, what some people do is to slice the front half of the inner wheel house and move it inward which then leaves a long skinny pie shaped gap.

then you cut a piece of metal the size/shape of that gap and weld it in


i believe that is what is being referred to
