It hasn't been lowered but theyre catching on the back. Tyres are 265/35

Has anyone else had issues or had to make a mod?

With that size tyre you should not have issues, especially if its not lowered. The offset in them wheels must be way off. I had mine lowered 90mm on coils with no rubbing on the back. The front however is a different story

Sorted the heat shield out with a hammer

Do you know the off set of the wheels. I run 265/35/22 with an off set of 40 I think and they don't rub. They are close but even loaded they don't rub
