Tire Fitting Issue - Any specialized shop to help make it work?

So far I've done

Rolled Fenders
Cambered in (-2.0 and Toe at 0)
Wheel offset changed to 34mm

and I still can't fit the DPE 19x10 wheel..as a suggestion from my other thread (http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=177111), is there any shop that specializes in these situations? Billpreston and another have made these wheels work with their coupe, but is not working with mine. I know no two cars are the same, and MachIII has done all they could possibly do to help with this situation aside from cutting the fender flange itself off. Is there any other shop in the northern bay area that would be able to do anything else?

Thanks in advance.

you're not gunna make it fit w/out rubbing unless you switch the rears to 265/30's & the front to 235/35/19...

from the thread you linked to on this page i was unclear as to if you had already purchased these size tires yet but if you haven't, that's your 1st move

with a 34mm offset, and a 10 in ch wheel and rolled fenders, im goin with good year eagle f1 asymmetrics, a more performing tire than the t1rs, i should be fine now that i get it in 265/30/19, 275/30/19 on such a big tire (re01-rs) was a horrendous experience

You should be OK. I have 19x10.5 ET30 with 275-30-19. And the fender cut, no rubbing issue.
