Front Bumper - what is this thing for?

I have an 1988 930 and have added the 18" RH wheel set but have a tire clearance issue on the front right. The cause is this extruded aluminum bracket that is attached to the inner part of the front bumper and only on the right side.

Now that I have it all apart, it looks to me like a redundant part. Anyone know what this thing is for? I was going to shorten it by a half inch but it is looking like I can just remove it completely as nothing bolts to it.

In the second picture you can see that the black anodizing has been rubbed off to shiny aluminum by the tire.

What am I missing?
