Rubbing Michelin PSS Dilemma - 295/30/19s rub and 285/30 are RFT

After a lot of research on M3post, I purchased a set of wheels with Michelin PSS tires and the following is my setup:

19x9.5 ET 20 - Michelin PSS 275/30/19
19x10.5 ET 25 - Michelin PSS 295/30/19

Suspension: KW Sleeves
Edc: Normal

I expected rubbing in the rear with this setup. Many members have reported that they have to dremel off the plastic fender liner where the bumper and fender meets and mine was no different.

I did this and to my absolute dismay, my rear passenger side started rubbing on my metal fender but now I have no protection with the liner! I immediately brought the car in to get an alignment. I had the shop make the rear camber -2.0 and correct the excessive toe.



Following the alignment, I went for a drive and had a larger coworker (~200 lbs) of mine sit in the passenger rear seat and after a big bump, I got rubbing again in the same area.

This absolutely drives me insane as I daily drive my car and expect to use it all the seats once in a while (I did buy an E90 afterall). I am looking for ways to resolve this.

Couple questions:

1) One option is to get 285/30/19 tires. If I stick with PSS, my only option is to get the ZP (Zero Pressure aka Runflat) PSS tires. Are run flat PSS's really that bad? I don't want to go 275/35 as that might be too skinny for 10.5" rim.

2) Does anyone have any other ideas on how to fix this? Rolling/pulling fenders is my last resort. I am probably going to max out the camber.

Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!

Come in 285/30/19
I have these on my ZCP wheels at the rear and no rubbing

However I have noticed that e90 tend to rub more than a e92. Maybe they have less clearance??? Someone can correct me on that??

i run 275/35 PSS in the rear with a 12mm spacer. Its perfect IMO. Fills up the gap perfectly, and its a step up in size from the factory. No rubbing at all.
