When you start to move the muffler left or right, make sure you watch the tips on the rear bumper...

^ is the tire just kissing the canister (i.e during "play")? if the dougnuts are good.. stick a balled shop rag in there to add some spacing/staightening; it'll be barely noticable outside.

Yea more or less- if I push on the canister it moves completely free of the tire

I had the same issue with 255s and my SS. If you seach, you'll find that many others have had the same issue (with good hangers). I took a mallet a made a small dent in the can where it was rubbing.

Funny you should say that...my dad suggested doing just that (as a joke), but I'd rather avoid putting dents in my exhaust
I will try adjusting the exhaust first and see fi that fixes it. I'll report back when it's done.

Youll need to dimple the can of the Supersprint. I did this using a tool (forget what its called) but it was a piece of iron with a rounded edge and it came out nice and clean. Looked factory, dont worry about denting it. Clearance is more important

I know that - I'm a little worried about the tire wearing down on the inner sidewall, but I will hopefully be taking care of this in the middle of this week. If the exhaust can't be adjusted I will dimple/dent the canister.

If you can run spacers go for it, it will look better and most likely no longer rub.

I'd be concerned about the spacers on the back. My 235/40/18s rub with a small spacer on the fender with ACS type IIIs.

I wouldn't worry about affecting the exhaust with a dent. You know how Ford engineers got a 428CJ or a 429 into a Mustang back in the late 60s and early 70s? Really big hammers on the frame. They just beat it til it would fit the engine. It won't hurt an exhaust.
