also, on a side note, why dont you run 235s up front? you wont have any rubbing at all and u get more tire and itll even help a lil bit neutralize the handling too.

Ok...like everyone mentioned it would have been better if it you went with a 235/265 set up. With those offsets you shouldn't rub, even with the larger tire size. Vossen recommended sizes??? Did you get that directly from Vossen or from your tire shop? B/c when I was working with Vossen they ALWAYS suggested the right tire sizes. When I told them what size i was going to put on the tires they continue to ask me if I was sure b/c I SHOULD run bigger. One thing you could do is weigh the rear of the car down...have a few people sit in it to lower it to see exactly where its rubbings.

I don't see why a roll and a smaller tire wouldn't fix the problem.
