fender rub help

Hello. I need some help on what i should do. i currently installed ambit wheels on my e90 and am rubbing in the front badly and have no idea what to do. i replaced my struts as my mechanic said they were broken and i thought this would fix the problem because my front was riding really low with broken right stru. my tire size is 18 9x5 +20/30 not sure. i had no idea what i was getting into when i bought these wheels . i just really wanted them :P. its scratching along the outter side of the tire and is chipping it away. how do i fix this?? do i need a camber setup? i dont want to change my wheels, i love the look. my wheels stick out of the fender about an inch if looking from birds eye view(looks like wide body) please help can not upload pictures because its too big, using iphone

maybe get your fenders rolled or 235's on the front. +20 offset is a little aggressive.

What tire size? 9.5et20 will fit with a 225/35/19 at stock camber or 235/35/19 with -1.5 camber if you get camberplates.

Do you have a E90 or E92. E92 have plastic fenders which cannot be rolled. You can make them fit with the Above spec if you are into the stretched look uneven tire wear look.

Nobody can really tell you anything unless you tell us your wheels sizes and tire sizes. The
