You might talk to the wheel manufacturer and inquire if there is enough "meat" to machine 2-3mm from the hub face. This is not al solution to be undertaken lightly and will require some real engineering on wheel strength, clearance on the inside with suspension components, thread engagement of the lug bolts, etc.

Overall diameter is too large. You're at 27.8" Factory is at 26.5". That's a significant difference. Good luck.

I guess you need to escalate this issue with Vossen then.

That's better. If you have no issues in normal driving, then I'd get stiffer springs and shocks. That should stop the rubbing on bumps. I had a similar issue on my M3 due to the previous owner installing improper suspension components. Stiffer stuff made it work. Just be sure to install shocks and struts to match the stiffer springs. You will break things if you do it wrong.

Beautiful car, by the way. I love the wheels.

Stiffer suspension setup and 22s. I hope the roads are smooth somewhere safe.

Stiffer springs/shocks may reduce the chance of rubbing but they won't limit total suspension travel. Rubbing will still be a problem. Must roll the fender - there's gotta be a way.
