Et 15 and et 20 offset with 255/30/20 285/30/20

I have recently replaced my tires and currently running no spacers. Want more of a flush look. I have 3mm and 5mm spacers that I can try. I am getting a slight rub in the rear. It seems like it's rubbing on the inner plastic piece above the bumper. I have posted pics. Not sure if I can get away with 5mm or 3mm in the rear.

You're already rubbing on that piece in pic 5 and you're wondering if you can add a spacer?

Lol.

Lol.
Only where the bumper meets the fender. Which can easily be shaved down. That was rubbing when I had my michelins, more square compared to the Falkens.

Just added a 5mm spacer and shave down the liner where the bumper meets the rear quarter panel. IMO it looks better. If it still rubs will go down to a 3mm which is not much.

You might want to add some camber to be safe.

I've got 20" LM's and I can't fit a spacer.

Yes there is plenty. I may go down to a 3mm. Haven't driven the car since I put on the 5mm spacers.

Looks the same with or without to me. Post pics of the full car. LMs are classic.

I just really don't like when people warp the actual rear fender metal to flare out sharply. It destroys the flat part of the fender at the very edge and looks bad. Modifying the inner plastic is fine I think.
