Thanks! I did. The 13.0'' is measured from center of hub to edge of fender (recommended by KW). This mesurement avoids variances from different tire/wheel sizes. The rubbing only occurs when going up steep inclines (ie my driveway) at an angle to avoid scraping spoiler.

Thanks! Maybe I can take a pair of my 10 mm spacers to a machine shop and have them trim the backs 2 mm? Not sure how this would affect fitting over the hub.

Thanks! I had alignment done (3 wks ago) after switching to the KW adj sleeve kit. Alignment was put back to same specs as I had previously. The Eibach springs raised the rear much more and so this rubbing did not occur.
