Help!!! rear tire hitting the fenders

i got myself some staggered makavelli forged wheels

9" front with 265/35/22
10.5" back with 295/30/22

now i havent lowered it
and on uneven roads on the highways on bumpy areas my back tires hit the fenders and as a result the sidewall has been cut on several occasions.
ive actually had to peel off pieces of the sidewall

well ive nitto 420 and they are pretty solid but
i am driving soo carefully and afraid of scraping the fenders.

whats wrong here

1-is 295 size too wide cause its sticking out
2-is my offset wrong ( i dont know what the offset is i bought these wheels from a friend who owned a RT )
3- what would be a safe size at the back 275 or 285
4- for future purchases whats the smallest size i can put on a 10.5" rear rim.
( im thinking for future 245 in front and 265 or 275 at the back i want the
vossen CV3 )
thanks all

Sounds like you need to roll your back fenders! 10.5" is a pretty wide wheel and I don't know what the smallest size you can put on it is, but if a 275 would fit on the back that's what a lot of people put on a ten inch wheel and it sits flush otherwise 285 is a good size too. No matter what tire you put on it you may still have to roll your fenders because the wheels are so wide. Good luck and nice wheels!

It looks like the offset on those wheels are making them stick out too far. Those tire widths aren't usually an issue. Rolling the fenders as suggested is probably a good idea since narrower rear tires aren't going to make that much difference with that much wheel offset.

Personally, I'd just get wheels with the correct offset.

I have 11's on my rear and they barely would touch if cornering hard..Bought the TireRack fender roller and had them rolled....Then sold it to a member and made most of my $$ back. I had no shop locally that could do it. All is great now!
