hey guys i'm currently running on oem m3 219m. Tires are michellin pilot sport non rft. Front tires are 245/44/r18. Rears are 265/40/r18.
Fenders are rolled and cambers are pulled in a bit. Rears still rub. Any advice on what to change?

Hey, I'm actually running that setup with the stock 18" sport pkg tire sizes. 225/40/18 fronts and 255/35/18 rears. The rears used to rub until I rolled my fenders and got an alignment.
