Great thread. With some very interesting positive rubbing results. I would consider mine also quite surprising.

Car: 2011.5 E90

Wheels w/ Offsets: OEM 220

Spacers: MS (F) 15mm; (R) 12mm

Tires / Miles: Pirelli P Zero OEM sizes 265/35/19 245/35/19, brand new

Suspension: Dinan Stage 1

EDC Setting: all

Alignment: Dinan stage 1 specs

Fender Modifications: (F) None (R) None

Rubbing?: (F) No. (R) Yes, both sides, outside corner of tires rubbing the plastic nub on the wheel well liner mostly on bigger bumps at speeds over 40mph. Also over larger rounded speed bumps (not the small pointy ones). I have smoothed down the plastic significantly via my rubbing, and have also used a Dremel to smooth it further. I'm still rubbing, albeit not as much as immediately after the simultaneous suspension and spacer install.
