The rubbing is all due to the offset of the wheels. What offset is your 18s?

-it is due to the offset, cause I have 225/40/18 and my tires rubbed at stock height. now it's even worse that I dropped it on tein s-techs. My fender plastic actually ripped off, cause I wasn't keeping an eye on it, and it came off at liked 70mph and put a crease in my fender.

-side note
going to purchase 225/35/18 this spring, any suggestions a good tire that isn't very expensive. Choices seem limited compared to 225/40/18, 215/40/18, 215/35/18. really don't want to loose the extra width and step down to a 215, but if it's going to save me a good chunk of money, I may have to.
