Help me stop the rubbing...

Car is finally off the road for the winter, and I am addressing a few minor issues that I've been experiencing.

In the spring I put on some 19x10" ZHP Replicas +25 offset all around, with 265's on all 4 corners. I am running a 5mm spacer in the front, and 12mm spacer in the rear. It looks great, but apparently the fit isn't perfect.

Lately I have been noticing some rubbing in the front, especially on slow speed turns and when parking. Not positive it is the fender liners or a suspension component but I want it to stop. Any ideas what it is hitting?

1. Do I need a bigger spacer up front to get a little more clearance?
2. Are my tires too wide for the front?
3. Any other suggestions as to how to rectify?

I'd love to hear from someone running a similar sized setup and see what they are doing to make it work. I'm thinking an 8-10mm spacer should solve the problem, but want to be sure. Planning on lowering the car soon, and don't want any issues.

Thanks in advance
