It looks like its on natural camber right now in the rears, bring it to -2.5-3. If you opt for 245.35 your rub would be worse as it will rub on the top edge of the side wall as your wheel will appear smaller and ride height will be higher. (speedo will be more off).

Hit up supreme powers for fk bumpstops with your 265.30. it a cheap solution 30 bucks if its all you need. camber and tires change if that dont work.

Adjusting the dampening on the rears will do nothing as a solution to the rubbing. The spring compression travel is the enemy, its all part of the aggressive look. its an art to minimize the rub. but everyone wants the best of both worlds with comfort/handling vs looks.
Thanks for all the advice, I appreciate it. It's hard to tell from the angle but its actually at about -2 camber already and I'm not sure if I can go any more on a stock rear suspension. I fear that if I do go any more it might be hitting the coilover but I guess I won't know for sure unless I get a proper alignment to test it.

I'll look into the fk bumpstops. They'll make the car ride alot more stiff though right? I mostly made the mistake of going way to aggressive on these rims but I got em for a good deal. They're 19x10.5 ET38 in the rear which isn't supposed to fit on a 1 series basically.
