Help! Rubbing ... :(

I got a set of wheels and tires recently but the rear ones rub badly to the outer fender. The tires got scratch and cut badly.

my tire sizes are 265, 30, 19" for the rear.

Questions:
1) Can they shop flatten the outer fender nicely ?
2) Can I adjust the camber to have more negative setting to avoid the problem? but I doubt if I can do so as the tires may then rub the inner fender.

Anyone had the problem before? Any idea?

Thank you

Will the paint chip off with fender rolling?

Since I need to do the fender rolling for the outse side, I donno how much damage will it bring to the paint of the face of the wheel fender.

I went to Car Nutz in Bellevue, WA and the guy said they can do the fender rolling for $50 on each side. I hope they will do a good job

HOLY MAMA!!! Man, that looks bad! Don't worry about fender rolling. It will not chip your paint. They aren't pulling your fenders, just modifying the inside to accommodate the wheels. Have them switch the tires from left to right and you will never see those ugly marks again
