My rubbing is occurring with the PSS in stock sizes. The rubbing does not occur with my NT01's due to not running a spacer and the smaller diameter.

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.
I agree, some tires are more likely to rub than others due to thread width and shape of shoulders. I have ran 5 mm spacers previously for some time without any problems. I like the hub-centric 10 mm spacers, but would rather run the 5mm and not have to raise car back to the previous height.
