Well then you are too low or your tires are too wide or you have an offset that isn't right or any combination of these. I'm lowered with oversized tires but I don't rub because I went narrow up front and just big enough out back. Lots of ppl rub because they want to cram 275s up front and 315s out back for no good reason IMO.

Need more info from your combo.

mickey Thompson's in all four corners 245/40/18 and 275/35/18
If I turn the wheel all the way and stick my hand around the wheel and feel around its not rubbing but if the surface I am on is inclined or not flat I can hear it and feel it in a way

Yeah but how much are you lowered and what wheels are you running. what size/offset? I have a 235/45/18 on a 18x8 stock offset wheel up front and its 0 rub at full lock lowered 1.25" all around.

Not sure of the offset but they were from americanmuscle.com so they should fit properly. 18x9 for my front two and 18x10 for the back.
Springs are cut but barely enough to notice a difference. I could only imagine what it will be like when I replace the springs. Maybe I need to remove the splash guards in my fender if that's even possible, will have to take a closer look.

I'm not sure how your rubbing I have a 265/35 r18 up front on an 18x9 +22 back space and lowered 2" and have zero rubbing at full lock. Has there been any marks on any thing like the wheel or tire its self? Or is it just a noise you hear when on an incline while turning?

its a rubbing noise I can hear when I crank the wheel and do a tight turn or when I turn as backing down the slight incline on my driveway. If I turn the wheels all the way one way and reach in it has enough clearance. I think when the body roll along with how close the wheel is to insert inside the fender it makes it rub. Could it actually be something else? Not sure what else it would be.
