Default Anyone else rubbing on Vossen's?

I just got my 19x8.5 19x10 CVT's installed with the recommended 235/35 265/30 tires. I'm lowered on S.Techs. It sounds like im hitting on the rear left seam where the bumper attaches to the frame.
It doesn't seem like there's anything to roll. Anyone have a remedy for this?

It could be the size tire you're running. I have 20" CV5 with RS*R Down Springs which are similar drop and don't rub but I have 225/30/20 and 255/30/20.

your problem might be that falkens run on the large side.

Someone had falkens on a set of velgens which were 10.5 wide dropped on teins and they didn't rub. The falkens aren't as tapered as stock but they also aren't fat.

Anyone think I might have gotten the wrong offset?

RSR Downs and TEIN S.Techs not similar. S.Techs are a lot lower IMO.

What are your offsets?

I rub too, I have a vossen 20x10.5 in the rear with 255/30/20 and I am also running the tein s springs. I had to have the fenders pulled a little so that they wouldn't rub.

my offsets are +32/+42.

I drove it around town trying to get it to rub, and if im not careful going over speed bumps, the fronts hit real hard. Im left with these burn marks from my tires.

Do the fenders look normal after the pull? This may be my only option since my alignment specs aren't that off from being lowered.

I spoke with speed element in San Jose and they recommended shaving the fenders over pulling them. Anyone have experience with shaving?

Shaving can be done easily it is that rear inner lip just getting trimmed down.
