HELP! Rubbing!!
 
So I just mounted my Toyo Proxy T1S's on my brand spankin new Ro_Ja Formula 5's. The rear, however, is rubbing. Its not a constant thing over EVERY single bump but with my dad in the car and 2 of my old wheels, it was pretty bad. Now with him out and those wheels out, I rub on the larger bumps. I'm already running some negative camber and I do have a drop with some ACS Sport Springs but that is all. I felt around a bit underneith the wheel well and it seems like I just need under a centimeter of room to be fine with the rubbing. Actually, it simply looks like the metal-work that curls underneith the fender on the inside needs to be pushed out a bit, the fender can stay where it is. Any suggestions? Comments? Solutions? PLEASE let me know!

I may be heading to get my fenders rolled tomorrow morning and get everything aligned correctly finally. BTW, I'm in Jersey so if people have suggestions on where I should go, tell me! I will likely go to Freedman if no one else suggests otherwise... how much does this usually cost (fender roll etc)

Your rear wheels are the wrong offset.

Uh, why do you say that? I'm pretty sure Roja only makes a 5x120 bolt pattern in a 18x9 size in one offset... shouldnt I just roll my fenders?

I bet that one offset is an E36 fitment. If they made the wheel properly, you would be able to fit a 255 tire with no problems. Now you have to roll the fenders and risk cracking the paint.

Ed! So negative man!

My car is lowered and no matter how you slice it, a 255 rear tire is aggressive... so i rolled the fenders this morning with absolutely no problems whatsoever.

Jake @ Freedman Tire is the man. Knows his stuff and the whole job cost me $74!! Amazing!
