Minor rubbing in the front...

I installed 12mm spacers in the front this morning so my 360's could sit as flush as possible. I stopped and checked to c if I was rubbing and altho u cant hear it u can see it from the inner lining that I have minor rubbing. Once I turn almost fully the tire rubs on a part of the inner wheel lining. Is this ok or should I mayb go down to a 10mm spacer. Could I leave it?

Actually thinking about it, it doesnt make sense to go from a 12 to a 10mm. The difference would be very very minimal. So my question now is should I leave it? Can this cause any harm? As I said, u can see where it touches on the wheel wells, but In doubt its hard enough or just enough to cause any problems to the tires or the wells. Ur thoughts.

Spacers were not needed. If you saw how the car looked without the spacer you would say no need. Every wheel company has to save their own ass and make sure they have absolutely no rubbing with most tire sizes that are correct which means u will still have some room to play with. I on the other hand love absolute flush and therefore went with a spacer, 5mm in the back and the tire is basically 2mm away from the fender. The front I used 12mm and like I said, I do have very minor rubbing, but thats due to me going for the look that I want not 360's fault. Dont know offsets and such, but like i said, wheels were alreay aggressive, I just wanted them to b as flush as possible. I may take off the front spacer, dont know, but it does look good lol

Wheels r 20x9 and 20x10.5. Running 255/30/20
