It looks like the liner design is different on the E90 and E92. My fender liner sticks out more... or is it the angle of the photo? I get scrape marks on the sidewall of my tire from the rubbing but it is just cosmetic so far. Again, only rubs on track/autocross, no rubbing on the street. I cut the liner a bit for clearance. It rubs less now but still happens.

It is definitely tire dependant! I had the same set up with PS2 and it never rubbed. Now it rubs with PSS tires which runs wider and is more square.

I am leaning towards using a 5mm spacer instead of the 10mm. I am ok for now but I can't run any wider tire fitment as it is now and afraid of tearing up my tire from rubbing when on track.
