Rubbing?

I've got a 2002 M3 Cab and I just put 19in Lowenhart LD5's on it and the rear wheels rub a little. I'm running a 19x10 rim in the back with 275/30/19 michelin pilot sports. Do you guys have any suggestions as to what I can do to eliminate the rubbing? It only rubs when I'm driving at high speeds and I hit a dip in the road but it just doesn't sound too good.:sad:

Right If done properly it won't damage your paint. Try calling some bodyshops in the area to see if they'll do it for you, or if you're carefull, you can slowly bend the lip in by rolling a baseball bat against it with some elbow grease.

Has anyone else had to roll the fenders on their M3 and have they had any problems afterwards?
