You can get some stiffer bumpstops or run a stiffer rate spring if tires alone didnt fix your rubbing issue.

245x.3 = 73.5/10.5= 7 ratio
255x.3 = 76.5/10.5= 7.2 ratio

265x.3 = 79.5/10.5 = 7.5 ratio
245x.35 = 85.75/10.5= 8.1 ratio
This is how it looks right now:

Basically front is perfectly fine with 215/35's. But rear with the 265/30's is where I rub. I really wanted to get used 245/35's and if I try to go 255/30 then there's almost no way to get used tires since basically only Yohokama makes em in that size.

I tried setting my KW V2's to full stiff and didn't do to much. I don't really want to go any stiffer since the ride is already pretty harsh at full stiff on KW V2's and 19" wheels.
