Tyres rubbing on mudguard...will it cause a problem?


I have bought some mudguards but due to rust one part where they should be screwed in (just underneath the saddle) they cannot be .

This means there is some intermittent rubbing, especially at slow speeds. I'm not sure why this is only occurring at slow speeds but it definitely is.

My question is, is this likely to be doing any damage to the tyres?

If not I can put up with going a little slower as I dont ride my bike too much in winter months (150-300 miles tops) before they will come off for the summer.

Any help or advice would be appreciated.
