fander rolling or change spacer?

Today I finally got my springs and 15mm RE spacers installed.
After finish installation. I took a test ride in order to see everything is fine..
However, everytime I make a right turn.
my driver side rear fander rubbed..but not too much
just driver side. the other side is ok. no rubbing
I think 15mm spacer is a bit too thick
My rear offset is ET 45
Now I am thinking get fander rolling or change to 12mm even 10 mm spacer?

Mark, what are the other specs to your wheels? 19"? 9.5 Wide? Are you sure your rear offset is +45? With a +30 offset, nothing should rub. You got H&R sports?

I was once told that 265 is the smallest one could put on a 19x10, and even that is being stretched. On an 11 inch wide rim, you'd have to step up to 275 or ?

The rim size sounds perfect. Did you get an alignment afterwards? If so, what are your specs?

OH.I forgot to check my specs after alignment
I got an alignment after I took the spacers off
Cause the instalation and alignment are in different place
so I do't know if it'll still rub after I got an alighment.
Maybe I should put them on the rear again see if they still rub the fender.
