Default Wheel Rubbing - Suggestions?

I have a 2004 M3 Vert with what I think are 19 inch Miro 111s. I just had the front and rear suspension/shocks rebuilt with stock parts and have new tires, but am still getting rubbing at low speeds at one or more of the wheels.

BMW OEM spec was 225/40/19 Front and 255/35/19 Rear. Miro's site I see says it should have 245/35/19 Front and 275/30/19 Rear. Does anyone know if this is causing my rubbing or should I check to see if the spacers are right (+35 Front and +20 Rear)?

You need an alignment

Thanks - I have gotten an alignment. To be clear - I am only getting rubbing at full turn at low speed. Any thoughts?

Have you checked the plastic inner fender liner? Clips popped off or it is warped from age?

05 Vert owner w/19" rims here. Is it the rear that rubs? If so, I highly suspect that it is your diff, and not your wheels rubbing. I had the same experience. Turns out there is a service bulletin advisory to replace the rear diff fluid with an updated version that had better friction additives, or something. After that was done on mine, the "rubbing" noise went away completely.
