Wheel rubbing

I just got a set of new 225/40/18 tiers and my rear left tire is rubbing on something inside the wheel well. It only rubs when I hit a speed bump, make a sharp turn, or when I have people in the back seats. The car is not lowered. anyone else have this problem?

Rolling the fenders means to kinda force them to bend out more than they should be to give the tires more clearance. The crazy jap drifting guys do this.

Fender rolling means taking out the fender liner and the folding the inner lip of the fender up. You basically fold it against the inside of the fender to create more room.

That's basically your only option, since it's still at stock ride height.

I guess you could also try to get as much either off of the rear end as possible, or get the Hoctchkis camber links and try to adjust the rubbing away. That worked on my friends 240, but it was in addition to rolling the fenders.

How about just getting some rims with the correct offset? I'm running 8,5x19" rims with 235/35 tyres and got a 60mm drop up front and 70mm rear, havn't done anything at all to my arches, and there's no scrubbing what so ever.
