Good thread. A rubbing "database"!

Yes. I have the same setup and like Greg, no rubbing. Even as precise as modern cars are there are some tolerancing issues. Might even be a tire that is on the upper end of the overall OD tolerance range. Lots of plastic in this area does not help with final assembly tolerance.
