if thats the only time it rubs in the front, i'd say u can just leave it alone. if it bothers u, maybe a 225 in the front will help.

fronts are not aggressive at all, you're likely to be rubbing from the rear more than anything.

well your ideal et should be 19x8.5 35et fronts so if you need a 100% no rub with that tire you need to remove those front spacers and just do a 5mm. but if it only rubs going in reverse as you turn then i would leave them alone. unless it douse bother you.

This is not aggressive. My front 9.5" et19 sits 19mm further out than yours and does not rub.

Take the wheel off and look for signs of rubbing.

Not really sure why you're rubbing there.
Are PSS9s dampening adjustable? Stiffen them up.

yes it's adjustable.

if i turn my wheel fully left or right there's no gap between that area.

tires are touching that pannel.

but on nomal (straight) driving...never happen....it always when i turn my wheel full lock and reverse.....
