Ahh I think it just rubs when I go over a deepish or sudden dip in the road, when iv got 1 or more passengers in the car or when the side wall rubs a bit when I turn corners a little bit faster then I should

What size are you running on the front? I would run a 255/30.
You should also work out where you're rubbing, most of my rubbing was coming from the clip where the fender meets the rear bumper which won't necessarily be cured by a skinnier tyre. Tape up your fender with masking tape, go for a drive and see where the rub marks are.
