Yours looks to be stock height. If so, they might barely rub the fender on a hard bump. Mine always did it on one side, but never bad enough to cut the tire or do any damage to a fender.

Definitely stock height.... Was more concerned when I floor it. But everyone on here says that's the best tire just didn't know if I was missing something

Stock height should be okay, I had the same situation and instead of testing it out I went with a smaller M&H tire but most say there's no issue to slight rubbing

Ok. Well I'm going to try it and see what happens. I wonder if new rear shocks would help or not.

I run the same wheel and tire setup on my stock height 2010.

I rolled the rear fenders after I saw a tiny rub on the top outside of the driver's side wheel well. Haven't had a problem since.

I originally picked up a pair of 305/45/17 M/T's but upon mock up, I elected not to mount them because they appeared to be a very close fit and I didn't want to deal with any issues. Sold them and got the M&H's instead. Fitment for your reference, stock ride height.

You get them rolled at a body shop or it something you can attempt yourself?

You should be fine at stock height, although that concerns me since I'm lowered and getting that same size. Coupes have more clearance though, correct?

Buy the base model CTS springs. You'll get the clearance you need for that tire size.
