new AG m359 set up rubs. need help ASAP

So I just mounted my new Avant Garde m359 set up yesterday and of course my rears rub. I am pissed and scared I'm going to destroy my fenders. The set up is as follows:

F: 19 x 9, ET35
R: 19 x 10, ET38

I'm on Michelin Pilot Sport tires with 245s up front that are fine and 275s in the rear that rub.

I'm on normal m sport suspension so when I hit dips I rub. I don't think I can roll my fenders because one has bondo on it due to someone hitting me and I'm nervous that will crack during the rolling process.

Will 265s fix this definitely? And how soon do I need to act to avoid damaging my fenders? Does anyone have this set up with 275s and not rub?

Any help or advice would greatly be appreciated.

Thanks,

If you run PSS tires its usually recommended to down a size so a 235 and 265 because they run wide. As long as the rubbing is not severe I dont see too much of an issue. Just watch out for those big whoops You might even want to take it to a local shop that does fender rolling and see what they think about the bondo and the rubbing.

If you think you can't roll your fenders you could add some negative camber. Depends where it rubs, if tyre just rubs the inner lip occasionally, then you don't need to act instantly.

Yea that's where the rubbing is. Top dead center of the inner lip of the wheel well. If I could roll that flatter without pushing the fender out that would be ideal. I'll have to look into adding negative camber as anything would be better it just sucks because I don't want to have performance suffer.

I posted a thread seeing if anyone is selling 265s so I'll find out if I can grab a pair cheap and get them mounted. I need a shop that I can use by me now. I learned that Michelin lesson the had way I guess.

You should look into having your fenders rolled/shaved or adding negative camber before changing the rear tire size. Unless you're planning on going down to 235/35/19 up front your front tire will be noticeable taller than the rear.
