New Wheels

Hey all, I've installed M3 CSL style wheel's on my '06 E85 3.0si w/86K miles and getting a little rubbing when I hit a dip in the road. Wheel size: F 19x8.5(35mm), R 19x9.5(40mm) with Michelin Pilot 4s 235/35 up front and 265/30 on the rears. Car has all stock suspension. Rear springs are not cracked but again, they're stock. I've looked at the tires and can't really see where it's rubbing on the rears. I'm getting some very slight rubbing on the outer corners of the front as well. Car was aligned with full negative camber. I've seen where folks have installed this size wheel/tire combo with no issues and have even lowered the car with still no issues. Could it be that the stock springs are just worn? That seems unlikely though.

Yeah, that seems unlikely. Do you have first-hand knowledge of the wheel size working? My Z4 M has 18x9 on the back and 18x8 on the front, stock. There doesn't look to be a lot of spare room around mine.
