Thank you! Is that something a body shop would do?

Yes, a body shop would do that. But even with that you may still get rubbing. This could damage the tire and result in tire blow out. Needless to say it's potentially dangerous to you and others on the road.
I would seriously consider getting more reasonable sized wheels that fit the car and sell those.

I would roll the rear fenders for now. It is a very low cost procedure. (about $100) Find a reputable body shop to do it. If you use an unskilled hack-job shop to do it they may crack the paint.

Can you read the tire sizes front and rear and let us know what you have on there now.

If the rolling does not work (it should) and you want to keep the wheels you can go to a 285/25-22 rear tire which will cost you about $200 each.

Question guys for a 22x9 rim is 255/30 tire better or 265/30?

Seems like most 9.5 rims use 265/30

I have a 295/25 on my 22's with no rubbing issues, if you want to go with a lower profile wheel and do not want roll or flare your fenders... try purchasing tires with a rounded edge(michelin).

Yea either get lower profile tires (you risk bubbling if you hit potholes), roll the fenders or swap out the tires/wheels. You didn't notice the rubbing issues when you test drove the car prior to purchase?

I dont think you can roll the fenders since there are made of carbon fiber not aluminum nor metal

I know that this is an old thread, but The Nitto Enzo tire has been my tire of choice for this issue. Also, they are super comfortable and unusually quiet.
