Koni Yellow & H&R Sport

I have this setup. Fenders has been rolled all around and today I had my parents in the back seat...oh my gawd!!!! I felt so bad for my parents...I'm glad they didn't break their spine...seriously I don't know if it's the problem with my setup or this broke-ass Californiaz messssed up freeway condition, my ride was rubbing/bottoming out like crazy! Okay bottoming out and giving me harsh ride is okay but listening to that burrrrk burrrrk rubbing every 5 mins is what bothers me and my parents...that noise makes it seem more critical than it actually is doing to the car. Time for a coil over?

What wheel and tire setup are you running? This is a pretty conservative drop so I am surprised to hear that you are rubbing.

That doesn't sound right at all, to have that much compression on the shocks and be rubbing. As mentioned what wheels and what tire size and brand are these on?

I'd also like to know the answer to the wheel question.
What are the sizes of both the wheels and tires and the offsets?

Yes yeah, rub city. No idea why people insist on running M3 offsets on their E90 or E92's.
